Keyless entry remote programming

Hi all,

This is about a 2001 model.
I bought a new remote for keyless entry on amazon but can't get it to work.
I found the programming sequence online:
Close door, hold unlock button, key in,out,in,out,in and release unlock button.
Chime sounds 3 times and when i hold the lock and unlock button on the old remotes for 15 seconds the chime sounds, but when i do the same with the new remote, nothing happens.

eeks, it's a Chevy...

You do realize that Export Models have a different kind of remote and frequency the theft deterrent works on? And that US Style remotes do not work.

In Addition a completely new remote has to be programmed to the BCM, depending on the modelyear this can be done by everybody or for the later years you need a Tech2 or other kind of suitable programmer.
Which, again for the Export version, are nigh to impossible to get.

did you have keyless entry to begin with? if not then your car isnt even equipped with a receiver for the remote. check the batteries I assume?...
