I had this same issue awhile back and when I replaced the battery it didn't work right away. I just left the new battery in there and let it sit for awhile and when back out and tried it again and it worked. Maybe it just needs some time to register that new battery?

Not 100% sure but it fixed mine.

I know with some remotes you have to keep on hitting lock and unlock until the code registers and then it will work.

You may need to reprogram the remote to the truck.

Programming — Remote Entry Transmitter

Note:
All keyless entry remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.

Note:
To program (or reprogram) the keyless entry remote transmitters into the RAP module, perform the following steps:

1. Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered.

2. Turn the ignition switch (11572) from OFF to RUN eight times within ten seconds, ending in RUN. If the RAP module has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and then unlock all doors.

3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on a keyless entry remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each transmitter has been programmed. Repeat for each transmitter

4. If the door locks do not respond for any keyless entry remote transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, refer back to the pinpoint test.

5. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, or wait up to 20 seconds after step 2, to exit program mode. If a keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed (or reprogrammed), the RAP module will lock and unlock all doors one last time to confirm.

I grabbed the instructions for 99, the 96 ones are slightly different.

Here they are.

Quote:
Programming Transmitter(s)

When the customer has purchased additional transmitters, or has lost a transmitter, the customer MUST bring to the dealer ALL of the transmitters for the vehicle. The dealer must then reprogram ALL of the transmitters at the same time. The receiver assembly module erases all previous transmitters from memory, when the transmitters are programmed or reprogrammed. The receiver assembly module can store up to four transmitters in memory.

To program (or reprogram) transmitter(s) into the remote/keyless entry module, perform the following steps.

1. Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered. Refer to «Section 13-11».

2. Turn the ignition key from OFF to RUN five times within 10 seconds, ending in RUN.

If the RAP system has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and then unlock all doors.

3. Press any button on a transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each transmitter has been programmed. If the vehicle has memory seats, look on the back of the transmitters and make sure that transmitter No. 1 is programed first, and that transmitter No. 2 is programmed second.

If the door locks do not respond for any transmitter, wait a few seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, go to «Pinpoint Test A».

4. Turn ignition OFF (or wait up to five minutes after Step 2) to exit program mode. If a new set of transmitters have been programmed (or reprogrammed), the remote control alarm and door lock system will lock and unlock all doors one last time to confirm.

I tried doing it both 5 and 8 times like the instructions said after having to get my battery jumped and having my keyless entry stop working (my radio station presets also reset, so could it be that my truck did a whole reset on itself?) but I can't get the truck to enter program mode. I have to use the actual key itself in the ignition, right?

If you don't mind me asking, how did you replace the battery in your key fob (or whatever it's called)
Mine won't work anymore, and I'm assuming the battery is dead.

Just pop it open at the seam with a screwdriver or coin.
