Adding Keys (Without SPS) – Canada, Europe, South America, Asia, and Middle East Note: To initiate, this procedure requires that 2 learned key be available. A total of eight keys maybe be learned to a single vehicle. This procedure adds keys only. The procedure does not erase previously learned keys. The keys to be learned must duplicate the mechanical cut of the current key. Note: When verifying operation, make sure that no other transmitters are near the vehicle. If key fails to learn repeat steps 1-6 paying close attention to the time limits at each step. With a previously learned key, turn the ignition ON. Turn the ignition OFF and remove the key. With a second previously learned key, turn the ignition ON. Turn the ignition OFF and remove the key. Within 10 seconds of turning OFF the ignition, insert the key to be learned and turn ON/RUN position (do not turn to the crank position). Keep key in the ON/RUN position for 5 seconds and the theft light turns off. The vehicle has now learned the new key. Note: Step 5 can be repeated until a maximum of 8 keys are learned (including 2 factory keys) to the vehicle. Be sure to keep other keys and transmitters at least 12 in (30 cm) away from the ignition cylinder while learning. Verify each transmitter and key is operating properly. Remove key from the ignition cylinder and wait 30 seconds. Insert the key into the ignition cylinder and start vehicle.
1. You can pay to have whatever calibration installed at any time. GM wants a complaint before an update can be done under warranty, or they won't pay for it, updates usually are there to address an issue. If you're not having an issue why update? 2. No, updates under warranty are only done to address a complaint. There's no picking or choosing if you came with this a specific issue the tech will check for bulletins, then check for updates. Sometimes there is hardware that needs to be addressed before an update can even be done.
I think you're missing the point and taking this completely off the rails.
I wasn't implying anything negative, just sharing info.
There seems to be some sort of misconception, forum wide, not just this post as to what a TSB actually is. It's not a recall, admission of an issue, or anything of the sort. It's a diagnostic aid for technicians , there could be a million cars that it applies to, or there could be two. If the vehicle has the issue and is under warranty, CPO or factory, it'll be covered. If you go into the service lane quoting your complaint directly from the TSB, that throws up red flags. 99% of the time the people that do this are first time customers, either just out of or just about out of warranty, thinking this TSB is going to fix whatever the issue is, and free of charge. That's not the case. As far as diagnostic goes, every customer is advised of it whether it has 20 miles or 37,000 it's a cya thing. You don't know if the car has sat in a barn for a month and something chewed something up or what not. If the tech doesn't get diag they don't get paid. do you work for free? If you're under CPO most everything is covered. Why not just go to your "Stealership," and give them your complaints and go from there. You're not going into battle. Most of us are here to help, but if you go in with a bad attitude, don't expect anyone to bend over backwards for you.
