Battery is a lot cheaper than a new key or a GM5 issue. I'll try it out tomorrow. Do you know off hand which one it uses? If not I can look it up.

I just remembered that my other key didn't work either, I hadn't tried to program that, but that is still at my mechanic. The key I'm using now hadn't been used in a year, but has been used the past week.
