Also, the new batteries for the remote are the exact same ones as used on computer motherboards to keep the date/time, etc. So, if you have an old motherboard laying around with a good battery, replacing the battery on your remote will most likely be free. :)

My remot control not work

GM dealership has the tool to check the output signal of your remote. If no signal there are two possibilities. One, it needs a battery or two there is a broken connection inside the remote. Often the connections can be re soldered. You still need to know if the remote transmits a signal. Start at the GM dealership in the parts department. I used to work in GM parts and this is how we did it.

My remote wont work for my alarm and i need to know how to reprogram my remot

take it to a dealer, have them test the remote to make sure it is transmitting. if not replace the battery, they are cheap at walmart. if the remote is transmitting the dealer can program the car's receiver to recognize the transmitter. costs about 15 bucks unless you have it done in conjunction with some other service then it can be free.

Lost remot control how to have a new remot control ?

If this was built into the vehicle at factory you will have to go to the dealer to get one. If it is an after market alarm you will have to look up the alarm manufacturer and contact them for a replacement.

Remot control key is not communicating with car at all.

It is possible that the receiving unit on the vehicle is not operating properly. Whether that means a broken wire, bad circuitry in the receiver, or other problems it could the case, BUT more often than not, the key/remote was exposed to some kind of magnetic or high power field, effectively remdering the unit useless. Strong magnets, electromagnetic fields or even staying to long on a department store demagnetizer could lead to these problems. Go to the dealer and be prepared to take the hit, a replacement coded key can run several hundred dollars, but unless you swapped the battery and happened to get a bad new battery, than the dealer is the only solution, I hope this brief explaination shed a little light for you in the future.
