Matching Transmitter(s) to Your Vehicle

Each keyless access transmitter is coded to allow only

transmitters programmed to your vehicle, to work. If a

transmitter is lost or stolen, a replacement can be

purchased and programmed through your GM dealer.

Your GM dealer can reprogram your vehicle so lost or

stolen transmitters no longer work with your vehicle.

Each vehicle can have a maximum of four transmitters

matched to it.

 

To match a new transmitter to your vehicle when

you have a recognized transmitter (two recognized

transmitters are required for Canadian owners),

do the following:

1. The vehicle must be off.

2. Have the recognized and new, unrecognized

transmitters on your person.

3. Go to the rear of the vehicle and insert the vehicle

key into the key cylinder located above the license

plate. See Hatch/Trunk on page 2-14 for more

information on the key cylinder.

4. Open the trunk.

5. Turn the key five times within five seconds.

6. The DIC will display READY FOR FOB #X,

where X can be 2, 3 or 4.

7. Place the new, unrecognized transmitter in the

glove box transmitter pocket with the buttons

facing towards the passenger's side.

8. Once the transmitter is programmed, a beep will

sound. The DIC will display READY FOR #X,

where X can be 3 or 4, or MAX # FOBS LEARNED.

9. Press the ACC button (ignition switch).

 

The Canadian immobilizer standard requires Canadian

owners to see their GM dealer for matching new

transmitters when a recognized transmitter is not

available. United States owners are permitted to match

a new transmitter to their vehicle when a recognized

transmitter is not available.

 

 

The procedure will require three ten minutes cycles to

complete the matching process. Do the following:

1. The vehicle must be off.

2. Place the new, unrecognized transmitter in the

glove box transmitter pocket with the buttons

facing towards the passenger's side.

3. Go to the rear of the vehicle and insert the vehicle

key into the key cylinder located above the license

plate. See Hatch/Trunk on page 2-14 for more

information on the key cylinder.

4. Open the trunk.

5. Turn the key five times within five seconds.

6. The DIC message will display OFF-ACCESSORY

TO LEARN.

7. Press the ACC button (ignition switch).

8. The DIC will read WAIT 10 MINUTES and will

count down to zero, one minute at a time.

9. The DIC will display OFF-ACCESSORY TO

LEARN again.

10. Press the ACC button (ignition switch).

11. The DIC will read WAIT 10 MINUTES and will

count down to zero, one minute at a time.

12. The DIC will display OFF-ACCESSORY TO

LEARN again.

13. Press the ACC button (ignition switch).

14. The DIC will read WAIT 10 MINUTES and will

count down to zero, one minute at a time.

15. A beep will sound and the DIC will read READY

FOR FOB #1. At this time, all previously known

transmitters have been erased.

16. Once the transmitter is recognized and programmed,

a beep will sound and the DIC will display READY

FOR FOB #2.

If you have additional transmitters to program, take

transmitter 1 out of the transmitter pocket and place

transmitter 2 in the pocket. This can be done repeatedly

until up to four transmitters have be programmed.

The DIC will then display MAX # FOBS LEARNED and

will exit the programming mode.

When you are done programming transmitters, press

the ACC button (ignition switch).
