http://www.fullsizechevy.com/forum/general-discussion/technical-maintenance/372848-rfa-2-battery-low-alert-my-display.html ..have a look at that thread. You hopefully have two fobs, a 'Driver 1 and "Driver 2" and sometimes it's even written on the back. "Driver one" is the "primary fob" You must first change battery in both, then follow the steps below, then you can go to a dealer to have them turn the light off... or it can be turned off.-- re-set-- with a good OBD scanner. When you replace the battery, when it's out, the fob MIGHT lose it's programming. That is what is wrong IF it does not work after putting new battery in. If all fobs work forget about the steps below, but if not Follow the steps to re-program, then you may still have to have the light re-set, at a Dealer or with a scanner, which is what the Dealer would use anyway

1) Close all the vehicle doors. 2) Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder. 3) Press and hold the door unlock switch. 4) While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF. 5) Release the door unlock switch. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm the program mode. 6) Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one transmitter. After a delay of approximately 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the programming of that transmitter. 7) Repeat the previous step to program up to four transmitters. 8) Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position in order to exit the keyless entry transmitter mode. 9) Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.

I solved my problem by doing what 2003Denali at www.fullsizechevy.com said to do. After replacing the battery and the message still not going away. Do this...With the engine running, unlock and lock the doors with the fob. It worked for me. No more message.
