  1. Completed reprogramming the 2 new remotes - used the "old emergency key" to kickoff the process for when you do not have (2) working remotes. Worked as advertised in the owner's manual - programming process also "erased" the old remote. Now I'll replace the driver's door lock cylinder with the new cylinder coded for a different key profile and move on.
  2. Update: I did order new driver's door, glovebox, and spare tire lock sets ($ 127.90) for my son's 2020 truck. The kits come "un-coded" with packs of pins and since I had access to a similar vehicle key from another late model GMC, I had that key "de-coded" at a local locksmith. Then, using that info, I re-coded the lock cylinders for that key profile.

  5. My son's 2020 Sierra 1500 Denali was stolen and recovered quickly (thank you OnStar). The thieves still have a remote w/ emergency key so we're going to need to re-key the driver's door, glove box lock, spare tire lock, and purchase (2) new remotes with uncut emergency key blanks. The truck is only 3 months old so I initially contacted several dealerships to discuss, but of course the "service writers" are clueless and one quoted me $ 2,400 that included parts I didn't need. At that price I'll do it myself (for 20% of that number). So, has anyone used the "programming remotes" pr
