Hi guys, I am new to this site and should do the intro thing. I recently bought my 1997 Chevy Tahoe 4x4 (best truck I have ever owned) and was looking for pics and stuff and came across this site. I am a commercial transport mechanic in Port Moody B.C. and a gearhead. This is not my first Chevy truck, I have owned a 1991 S-10, it was so low it barely driveable, a 1989 S-15 , pretty much stock but had some nice wheels on it, a 1981 GMC shortbox fleetside, lowered, smoothed, fast....I miss that one. And last but not least my favorite was my 1971 Chevy El camino, hugger orange, SS stripes, 350 hp, cheater slicks, you either loved it or hated it. I am looking for info on how to program door remotes if you know how or where to look it would be much appreciated. :biggrin:

Nice rides listed, its nice to have your experience as a mechanic onboard. The answer to your question is listed below, Thanks for joining us.

FOB Transmitter Programming

All transmitters which are to be recognized by the Liftgate Module (LGM) must be programmed in a single programming sequence. If the system is placed in program mode it will erase all previously programmed transmitters upon the receipt of the programming signal from the first transmitter. Up to 4 transmitters can be programmed. Do not operate or program the transmitters in the vicinity of other vehicles that are in the keyless entry program mode. This prevents the programming of the transmitters to the incorrect vehicle.

You may program up to 4 transmitters, using the following procedures:

No Tools Required
Close all the vehicle doors.
Insert the ignition key into the ignition lock cylinder.
Press and hold the door unlock switch.
While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, cycle the ignition ON, OFF, ON, OFF.
Release the door unlock switch. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm the program mode.
Press and hold the LOCK button and the UNLOCK button simultaneously on one transmitter. After a delay of approximately 15 seconds, the doors will lock and unlock to confirm the programming of that transmitter.
Repeat the previous step to program up to four transmitters.
Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position in order to exit the keyless entry transmitter mode.
Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.

If it still doesn't work please repost.
