UNLESS YOU ARE WITH A FAMILIAR WITH NEWER AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONICS, I WOULD ADVISE AGAINST DOING AN AFTERMARKET ALARM / KEYLESS SYSTEM YOURSELF. THE PASS KEY CODES YOU ARE TRYING TO GET WOULD REQUIRE A DEDICATED MANUFACTURER SCAN / DIAGNOSTIC TOOL TO GAIN THE NUMBERS FROM THE BODY CONTROL MODULE. THE LEADING SNAP-ON SCAN TOOL STILL WILL NOT GET THE INFORMATION YOU NEED.
YOU MAY BE ABLE TO CONTACT YOUR LOCAL VEHICLE DEALERSHIP AND SEE IF THEY CAN GET YOU THE NUMBERS YOU REQUIRE FROM YOUR VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER OR "VIN" NUMBER FROM THE VEHICLE.
AS FOR THE KEYLESS SYSTEMS AVAILABLE IN THE AFTERMARKET SCENE ANY SYSTEM WOULD REQUIRE A DEDICATED PASS KEY ENABLER PURCHASED AT AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR MOST 2002 AND UP DOMESTIC VEHICLES.
BEST THING TO DO IS INQUIRE WITH THE MANUFACTURER OF THE VEHICLE AT A LOCAL DEALERSHIP IN YOUR AREA AND SEE IF YOU CAN PURCHASE JUST THE ''KEY FOB'' FOR A REASONABLE PRICE VERSUS THE EXPENSE OF EVERYTHING ELSE. THE VEHICLE MAY EVEN BE EQUIPED WITH FACTORY REMOTE START OPTION.

JUST AN FYI ALSO, IF THE VEHICLE WAS PURCHASE USED IT MAY BE MISSING THE KEY FOBS BECAUSE THE VEHICLE WAS A REPOSESED ITEM, I HAVE SEEN THIS A FEW TIMES BECAUSE MOST LENDING INSTITUTIONS ONLY HOLD ONTO THE KEYS AND GIVE ORIGINAL AND EXTRA KEYS AND FOBS TO THE PARTY WHO PURCHASED THE VEHICLE NEW.

What are the programing instructions for gmc terrain keyless remote fob?


According to a website I found for you, if it's a 2010 model you can't do it yourself. The site, which has much more information on the subject that you may want to read, said: "There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Try a locksmith before the dealership, they are usually 50% the cost."

The site also went on to say that it might be a good idea to go to your dealer (or call them) with your VIN number to see first if there have been any related recalls. Here's the site this info is from:

Programming the keyless remote


if you have the original remote, you can do it yourself. My remote was working without a problem until the other day when all of a sudden it didn't work out of nowhere. I thought it was the battery (might have been and needed to be reprogrammed after replacing it) so I changed it. Still didn't work. So I did a search and found the following instructions: Click Here

The answer is remarkably simple:
1. Get in the car and close the door.
2. Turn the key to the ACC position
3. Push the unlock button on the remote until the blinkers flash once.
4. Get out of the car and test the remote. It should be working fine. ( I actually was able to test it while in the car)

P.S. I would change the battery first.
