2015 GMC Yukon XL Keyless Entry Remote Fob Smart Key Programming Instructions

Use these instructions if your Yukon XL has a separate key and remote.

There is no manual on board procedure to program a keyless remote to this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the remote.






Use these instructions if your Yukon XL has one programmed Smart Key.

A new fob can be programmed to the vehicle when there is one programmed remote. To program, the vehicle must be off and all remotes, both currently programmed and new, must be with you.

1. Remove the key from the key from the programmed remote.

2. Place the programmed remote in the cupholder or passenger seat.

3. Insert the vehicle key into the key lock cylinder on the driver door handle. Then turn the key counterclockwise, to the unlock position, five times within 10 seconds. The Driver Information Center (DIC) displays READY FOR REMOTE #2, 3, 4, ETC.

4. Place the new remote in the remote pocket/insert. Open the center console storage area and the storage tray. The remote pocket/insert is in front of the storage area next to the center console storage area between the driver and front passenger seats.

5. Press the ENGINE START/STOP button. When the remote is learned, the DIC display will show that it is ready to program the next remote.

6. Remove the remote from the remote pocket and press unlock or lock on the remote. To program additional remotes, repeat Steps 4–6. When all additional remotes are programmed, press and hold the ENGINE START/STOP button for approximately 12 seconds to exit programming mode.
