    Default Remote Programming Instructions 1998 Suburban

    Item title: 1998 98 GMC Suburban Remote Programming Instructions

    1. Locate the Data Link Port. It is located under dash drivers side.
    Be sure you
    know which pins are 8 and 4.
    (Notice port is wider on top row)

    2. Make sure there are metal contact pins in terminals 8 and 4. Connect
    8 to 4
    with a suitable jumper wire (leave the jumper wire connected throughout the

    programming procedure). Make sure you know which terminals are 8 and 4. The

    vehicle will respond by locking and unlocking the doors to signify entering
    programming mode.

    3. Press and hold both the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons together on the first

    transmitter to be programmed. After about 15 seconds, the vehicle will respond
    locking and unlocking the doors. Release the buttons on the transmitter.

    4. Within one minute, repeat the previous step on the remaining transmitters
    be programmed.

    5. Remove jumper wire applied to the OBDII Port.

    Thanks Kevin, I used a paper clip to jump the 2 terminals and it work perfect. Now I have 2 remotes that work again. Thanks for the great info.
