Default Unlearn a remote

This is probably a stupid question, but is there any way for a vehicle to unlearn the factory remote? My wife'* remote died and I paired my extra one to her car and now it controls both my truck and her car at the same time.

Is there anything I can do? Any way to wipe the remote from my truck?

I drive a 2007 Avalanche.

Thanks in advance!

You'll need to reprogram the truck with only the remotes you wish to use. When that happens, it should no longer work with the remote that your wife is now using.

Seems pretty straightforward thankfully:

So basically, if I program my remote 8 times it should kick out the other remote?

Not quite. Usually if you just reprogram using the remote you want to use, it should stop working with the one that was moved to the other car.
