    Hi mate I had a similar problem, it seems if your battery has gone flat the Master key may need to be re-sinchronised by a series of tests in the ignition

    \\\\\i found the following


    get in teh car and shut the door. put the key in the ignition and turn it to position 2. (right before start) only leave it for like 1 second then turn the key back and take in out. press and hold the unlock button and press the lock button 3 times. At this time the vehicle will lock then unlock if done correctly. when the first one has locked and unlocked the vehicle take the second key press and hold the unlock button and press the lock button 3 times. (no need to put it in the ignition) this again should lock and unlock the doors. If you have more keys they all have to be done at this time also. If this doesn't work your screwed. LOL nah if this doesn't work try holding the lock button and pressing the unlock button 3 times. then if neither works you have bigger issues.


    hope this helps

    But even if the keyfob and GM3 module are not synced, putting the key in the door should lock / unlock the car.
    Mind you, this may have been disabled in the coding of the GM3.

    Just to clarify the coding for the keyfobs:
