avoid using the key to lock unlock your car as much as possible. you WILL end up with a new problem which is your door lock cylinder breaking and you not being able to get in the car

Make sure fuse 67 is installed and not blown.

Yes. I did read OP's original post.

"Help, my car won't lock with the fob, and every time I get in the car the dash beeps a bunch and it does the same thing when I get out. The key fob won't lock the car so I have to use the actual key in the door, how do I fix this?"

He also excluded the battery in his second post.

What exactly is it in his first post that makes you think his his problem has nothing to do with the GM5 module? Excluding battery failure the failure of the central locking system to respond to the key fob is classic GM5 relay issue. Which is why I wrote "if it is a central locking issue ...".

The key has no issue unlocking all the doors, the lock button on the center console works fine, windows work fine with the turn and hold key in the door to put up/down, and wipers work. It's NOT GM5
I talked to the dealership about it ,and they said it could be the receiver not picking up the signal. I have 2 keys, both unlock the door perfectly fine and start the car fine, and I think it's probably the receiver, or the car thinking there is still a key in the ignition.
