Re: program for keyless entry
You will need to take this to the dealer, there is a scan tool they will hook up and program to the vehicle. It normally cost about 35.00. On some vehicles you can hold the lock and unlock buttons down at the same time for about 30-45 seconds and it sets itself but there is no manual way to do this on this model. I think GM does this on purpose, sorry.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I own a 2007 Buick Lacrosse, but I imported it to Paraguay, South America. Now I bought a new Engine Start Keyless Entry Remote from Amazon, but here we do not have any GM dealer to program the unit.
I really need help to program the keyless remote control, I will appreciate very much your help.
Hello: The keyless entry feature was NOT a factory option available on the 1989 Cadillac SedandeVille. If you have keyless entry it has to be after market. you will have to find out who made the add on unit and how to program it. SORRY
To program ( or reprogram ) a keyless entry remote transmitter into the remote keyless entry module, perform the following steps:
1. Turn the key to ON or ACC and short the two terminals of the program connector, a two-pin connector located below the driver's side of the instrument panel at the base of the steering column. All doors should lock and then unlock. 2. Press any button on each keyless entry remote transmitter in turn. All doors should lock and then unlock. If the door locks do not respond, press the button again (up to three times maximum with the same keyless entry remote transmitter). If the door locks still fail to respond, go to Pinpoint Test A. 3. Repeat Step 2 to program additional keyless entry remote transmitters into the remote keyless entry module (up to four keyless entry remote transmitters maximum). 4. Turn key off. 5. Remove the short from the program connector. All doors should lock and then unlock. 6. Verify that the keyless entry remote transmitters have been successfully programmed by pressing the LOCK or UNLOCK button on each one, and observing that the system responds by locking and/or unlocking the doors.

the mechanic should be able to let you know what is the problem and what it takes to get it to work.
if the car was not equipted with the keyless entry and the dealer tried to sell you the remotes then you need to return the remotes.
by running the VIN on their computer, the dealer can tell you if you have it or not.
if I was you, I would just get a remote starting system from best buy or sam's then either have them install or have a good mechanic to install the system. it may be cheaper too!
Yup I agree with Mr.emissionwiz. I ran into the same problem a month ago. My remote entry got wet and had to buy one. Fortunately, I found them cheap on Ebay, but had to take the car to the dealership to get it programmed for about $50.
reading your post you mention to "open and close switch"..not sure what refering to...these are the instructions from your vehicles service manual...good luck!

Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered.
Turn the ignition switch (11572) from OFF to RUN eight times within ten seconds, ending in RUN. If the RAP module has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and then unlock all doors.
Press any button on a keyless entry remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed.
If the door locks do not respond for any keyless entry remote transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, refer to Diagnosis and Testing.
Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, or wait up to 20 seconds after step 2, to exit program mode. If a keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed (or reprogrammed), the RAP module will lock and unlock all doors one last time to confirm.
