need to go and have dealer do it but their are some but very limited locksmiths who can flash the fob ---when the fobs were only lock/unlock you could program by pushing the lock button and turn on vehicle but with the auto door open /autostart modes the fobs need to be programmed with software from dealers
Get a trick-Charger and hook up to battery, turn new key in ignition switch to "on" but do not start engine, turn headlights on ( thats why you need the charger) and leave it like that for 100+ minutes. That should do the trick and reprogram the new key, otherwise dealer only! about $130.00
I have a 2006 Chevy Uplander and I also drive a 2008 Chevy HHR for my company vehicle. this may not be your problem but in my personal vehicle and also our company fleet vehicles i have experiened Key fob failures. the first symptom was that the fob would stop working intermittently, then stop working all together. if you open it you may see that the clip that holds the battery and makes the circuit connection has come un-soldered from the board. if you are careful you can re-solder this and you are back in business. be careful not to damage the case. if it shows signs of opening, the dealer will not troubleshoot your problem and they will make you purchase a new fob.
unfortunatly, that is usually a programming code that the dealer does not let out. that is one of there easy money makers. it cost me $180 at nissan to get mine done, because no one could help me there.
