Question about Cars & Trucks
Its equipped with a factory security system
I would think that the key is mechanical and when you insert it into the lock that nothing can stop the tumblers from working. The Electronics are another issue. Have the battery tested, many systems compare voltage strengths in setting engine operating parameters.
The are also testing devices on the counter of many autoparts stores which allow you to test your remote.
Your security system should have a read/write memory which may need to be reprogrammed for everything to work. This is a job for a Dealer.
So take your battery in, check the remote, and then see if the Menu in the car dash has a setting for turning on the Remote function. Often when vehicles are Serviced in Quick Change Oil facilities, for instance, the options are erased. If the battery died the same thing can happen. This Menu has things like allowing for the Horn to honk when setting the Alarm, and whether some optional features will work.
I hope my solution is helpful. Please rate my info and I would like to know how you made out on this problem.

Your keyless/security system may have been damaged by the spikes. But, assuming you've already checked all the fuses, I would start by having the alternator tested. I would also check the alternator wire connection to the power distribution center (pdc). It can loosen and cause different problems.

The keyless entry is designed to work with the doors closed (closed - not locked). If the door ajar sensor thinks the door is open the keyless entry is disabled. When you manually lock the door it might tighten the door just enough to activate the keyless entry. I would try slamming all the doors closed and then see if the keyless entry works. If it still wont work have the wiring checked on the front door lock.

I don't remember the right way to do it but the remote can be reset by clicking 1 , 2 or 3 times and holding in for 10 or more seconds. Call a GM service at your local GM dealer and they should be able to walk you through it.
