New Key fob programming - 2015 Buick enclave

Old key fobs seem warn out, and donít always work to unlock car. Bought a new one on Amazon. Found instructions to program but they donít work. Shown below.

While holding unlock button down in car, turn ignition key to on, off, on and off again, then release unlock button. That should initiate programming mode. Nothing happened when I tried this.

somewhere I read I would need a locksmith or dealer to program this. Hoping thatís not the case.

thanks!

According to my sources that is not a DIY programmable fob.
You'll need to go to a dealer or a locksmith that programs remote fobs.
That may take a few calls to locate one.

It requires a Tech 2 tool to program, call around to dealers and repair shops, it's a common tool and only takes a couple minutes to link them up!

Heaven forbid one programming method is used.
Every year and every model.... and sometimes each sub model is different.
This car is one of those that the typical DIY methods won't work on.

I love my Audi key fob! Always keep it in my pocket, door handles have sensors so as long as key fob nearby, the doors will lock and unlock. Never have to touch the fob! Just wish Audiís had remote start.

The only 2 options I need/want on a car is heated seats and remote start. We've talked about the overwhelming useless content the auto companies have and will put on a cars that supposedly people demand them JD Powers results show that owners are frustrated beyond belief trying to figure out how all that crap works.

I own 6 pre 2012 vehicles and one 2017. I still cant figure out how to change the radio from am/fm/cd without staring at that friggen screen for 2 minutes. I hope I have enough old-tech vehicles to last me till I cant drive any more!
