If you’re a lucky Raleigh owner of the new 2017 GMC Sierra 1500, you know all about being on the forefront of innovation, convenience, and power technology. Part of this modern convenience package is your keyless remote.

GMC’s keyless remote feature allows you to lock, unlock, start, and turn off your car without using a key. You can even lock and unlock your tailgate this way, making it quick and easy to load groceries and get going without ever fumbling for a traditional key.

Find out how to program your new Sierra 1500 remote below.

Remote Programming Steps

Before beginning this process, be sure that you have all of the GM remote transmitters you’ll be using with you. This ensures that every remote transmitter is programmed correctly.

Step 1: Close all doors.

Step 2: Place the key in the ignition.

Step 3: Press and hold the power unlock button on the driver’s door panel. Don’t release until instructed to do so.

Step 4: Complete the subsequent steps quickly, or else the programming will not work.

Step 5: Turn the ignition switch to the ON position, but do not start the vehicle.

Step 6: Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

Step 7: Turn the ignition switch back to the ON position.

Step 8: Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

Step 9: You may now release the power unlock button on the door panel. Your truck should lock and unlock the doors automatically. This confirms remote programming.

Step 10: Hold down the lock and unlock buttons on the remote transmitter at the same time until you hear the door locking and unlocking. Allow 30 seconds for this to happen.

Step 11: Complete Step 10 for every additional car transmitter you have.

Step 12: To leave transmitter programming mode, turn the ignition switch to the on position.

That’s it! You have now programmed your GMC remote and are ready to hit the road without any hassle.
