Question about 2003 GMC Yukon XL
I change my battery in both of my remotes and cleaned my circuit board with alcohol. I order new keypads and to no avail my keys fobs are still not programming. Prior to that I was having RFA appearing on my my dash. I replace the battery then my remotes went dead shortly after that please advise.
I assume you did the re-synchronization process after putting in the new batteries ... Stand 5 feet away from the car and then ... Simultaneously press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter for 7 seconds
I did see that that back in 2003 there was a technical service bulletin about this issue (03-08-52-001C). This had to do with the passenger door module (PDM) which is in the door and receives the fob signal.
Just to be sure also ... check that the passenger area fuse/relays are OK

SOURCE: New battery car wont start
may just be a loose terminal. I had mine replaced and it took a few hours before it ran right again. something about the electronic modules take a little time to recharge.

Have your dealership test the remotes for you, they will also use a "Tech-2" to re-program it and should not charge you to do so. "I know mine does not" The "puddle" lamps come on when you un-lock the doors with the remote."If they are enabled in the options on your dash information center or "DIC". "See owners manual for info on that". As far as the DRL's make sure your bulbs are good because they are known to blow out. But the remote should not have anything to do with those.Hope that helps a little?

i would say the theft module saw the door trying to be open without the door lock or fob first, once the door lock button was pushed it shut down, it new doors were trying to be unlocked in a theft manner, once shut down it needs time to reset or needs to see ignition cycle with key and read chip in key, smart system isnt it, good luck.

Testimonial: "I thought it was something like that, so I guess using the car door wedge set this into motion and the guy with the keys inside the vehicle is screwed"
1. Close all doors
2. Insert key into ignition
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver's door panel, continue to hold down
until instructed to release in step 9.
4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in a fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
6. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
8. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
9. Release the power UNLOCK button on the door panel. The vehicle should respond by
door locks locking and unlocking automatically. (If locks do not cycle after you let go,
not before you let go of the unlock button, then the vehicle has not entered programming
mode and you must start procedure over. Remove key from ignition, open drivers door
and return to step 1 ). If the locks do cycle automatically then proceed to step 10.
10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote until the doors lock and
unlock. This may take up to 30 seconds.
11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional remote. (Including any existing remotes).
12. Turn the ignition to the ON position to exit the programming mode.
13. Test remote(s).

Check the buttons.. I have an 06 Grand Prix with the Remote starter on the top and it seems that the conductor on the buttons worn out.. Take the keyfob apart, pull the rubber buttons off the chip, lick your finger and touch the place where the unlock (right side of the fob) would be. That should unlock your doors. I just did it with mine. I would just buy another fob on ebay and change the buttons out.. Hope this works
