1. Insert keys in ignition and leave in the OFF position.
2. Locate the OBDII Port under drivers side dashboard.
(Note port is wider at top) Your OBDII Port will not have numbers, use this for reference.

3. Make sure there are metal contact pins in terminals 8 and 4. Connect 8 and 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 then unlocking the
doors to signify entering of programming mode.


4. Close Doors


5.
Turn ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without cranking the engine).
Doors will
lock.


6. Press and hold both the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons together on the first transmitter to be
programmed. Up to about 30 seconds, the vehicle will respond by locking then unlocking the doors.
Release the buttons on the transmitter.

7. Within one minute, repeat the previous step on the remaining transmitter (if any – including any
existing remotes).

8. Remove jumper wire applied to the OBDII Port

2001 GMC Safari - keyless remote programming help needed


You need to return the remote to midwest keyless and either tell them to give you a remote with the exact part number or buy one off of ebay. They are about $60 from the dealer. When the doors lock and unlock, the computer is telling you that the brain is now in learning mode but it is a must to have the correct remote. I have programmed thousands of keyless remotes so please believe what I say. You can program up to 4 remotes for one car but they all must be programmed at the same time. If you buy one remote and program it then get a second remote at a later date, you need to program both simultaneously. If you just program the second remote, the computer will no longer recognize the first remote. That is just some extra information for you. Let me know if you need any more help.

Keyless remote


If u have the system here is how you program it this is from the owners guide.
1.. Turn ignition to RUN or ACC.
2. Momentarily jump pins in programming connector located in LR quarter panel area (Connector will not be plugged
into anything, it will have two pins inside it, if you have to unlug it you have the WRONG one. Not all vehicles
are set up from factory for keyless remotes) All doors will lock then unlock to confirm programming mode.

3. Press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.
4. If programming a second keyless remote, press any button on second keyless remote.
Door locks will cycle to confirm programming.

5. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode

Program keyless remote for 94 Grand Marquis


On this model you will have to open glove box and press the tabs on each side so that you can open it all the way open. You will see a 2 wire grey connector behind it.
Turn ignition switch to run postion then take a paper clip or something like that and momentarily short the 2 wires together.
The door locks should then cycle from lock to unlock.Remove the paper clip then press one of the buttons on each remote. When you press the button on the remote door locks should cycle again to confirm that it programed.Then when finished turn off the ignition switch and door locks should unlock to confirm you have exited programming mode.
