Quick Learn Procedure for 2017 Keyed Models

New for 2017, two keys that are already programmed need to be present in order to use the quick learn procedure for adding keys to GM models (Fig. 9), excluding 2017 Acadia Limited, Enclave, Traverse, Express and Savana. On 2016 and earlier models, only one learned key is needed to perform the quick learn procedure.

Programming Additional Keys

 

To program a new key for keyed vehicles:

1.     Insert the original, already programmed key in the ignition and turn the key to ON/RUN.

2.     Turn the key to LOCK/OFF, and remove the key.

3.     Within five seconds, insert the second already programmed key in the ignition and turn it to ON/RUN.

4.     Turn to the key to LOCK/OFF, and remove the key.

5.     Within five seconds, insert the new key to be programmed and turn it to ON/RUN. The theft security light will turn off once the key has been programmed.

6.     Repeat these steps to program additional keys.

 

TIP: If only one learned key is present, SPS must be used to add additional keys. The quick learn procedure will not complete with only one learned key. Using only one key for the quick learn procedure will cause the theft security light to illuminate when attempting to start the vehicle.

 

The adding keys procedure does not erase any keys prior to programming. The procedure will simply program the key into the next available slot. Use this procedure when adding an additional key to the vehicle.

 

If all keys are lost, the 30 minute learn procedure should be used. Once a key is learned with this procedure, all previously known keys will no longer work with the vehicle.

 

If keys/fobs of vehicles with under 100 miles are lost or damaged in transit/transportation to the dealership, use labor code 0500010.
