    Yes, I seen that. I tried to find the fob on a GM parts website but didn't have much luck.

    We have the same problems, no display on the DIC. Went ahead with the steps but the Lock or Unlock doesn't work. Any idea from there for us to try?

    Re: Key Fob Programming Procedure?

    Hi, just to add to the conversation... I've programmed two new key fobs in my 2014 XTS with success on both counts. These were not bought from a GM parts distributor. In fact, one was purchased from Ebay and the second was purchased from a chinese vendor. For my part, this was an experiment as much as anything else. One thing I think leads to successful programming to to use the key from the "known to work" key fob, then drop that key fob in the drink holder closest to the compartment that contains your fob programmer. I followed the instructions in the owner manual. Both of the $18 ones I programmed have been working for over 2 months without a hiccup. I hope this helps...

    FWIW, I used a valet key fob (both of the original key fobs were missing when I purchased the car), to program 2 replacements for a 2013 XTS. I did not have the DIC display when I turned the key 5 times in the driver's door. I followed the instructions posted earlier on this thread -

    Revised Instructions (abbrev)
    Working TX in cup holder
    New TX in pocket
    Key five times
    Press "START"
    Wait 30 or more seconds
    Remove TX from pocket
    Check by pushing "lock " or " Unlock" on new TX
    If works Push and hold "Start" for 10 seconds
    Wait 15 or longer minutes if car is locked up
    Everything thing should then work

    - and it works perfectly. The key fobs I ordered were off of amazon here (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1).

    Thanks again to Levedr for the instructions!

    Re: Key Fob Programming Procedure?

    I realize this post is old but wanted to add some info. I just reprogrammed a FOB I bought off eBay for my 2013 SRX. Like everyone no display on the DIC and I followed the procedure in the manual anyway and had no issue, just no display.

    I noticed that some have trouble with their original remote and the new one (no start) after trying the procedure and there's advice in this thread to leave the car for 15 minutes or disconnect the battery.
    Not necessary. Just follow the procedure in the manual or the alternate one listed here in this thread and understand there is no DIC.

    If you think it failed, just press and hold the start button for 10 seconds (foot off the brake) per the instructions. Your lights will flash and your car is now out of programming mode so the old fob will work. No need to wait 15 minutes or disconnect the battery.
