Chevrolet Tahoe 2007-2014 Key Programming Procedure
The following are the key programming procedures for the 2007 and 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe.
ADD DUPLICATE KEY (Requires at least one working key):
1. Verify that the new key has “PK3” or “+” stamped on it.
2. Insert the original, already programmed key into the ignition lock cylinder and start the engine. If the engine will not start, see your dealer for service.
3. After the engine has started, turn the key to LOCK/OFF and remove the key.
4. Insert the key to be programmed and turn it to ON/RUN within 10 seconds of removing the previous key. The security light will turn off once the key has been programmed. It may not be apparent that the security light went on due to how quickly the key is programmed. (If your vehicle does not have a security light (04-07 Grand Prix, Bonneville, Impala), wait 10 minutes 45 seconds to make sure the key has been programmed).
5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 if additional keys are to be programmed.
About Chevrolet Tahoe
The 2014 model year for the Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL, Cadillac Escalade, and Cadillac Escalade ESV began in June 2013 and ended in February 2014, when it was replaced by a new version as a 2015 model.
The Tahoe and Yukon are based on the GMT K2XX platform and have the designations K2UC (for Chevrolet Tahoe) and K2UG (for Chevrolet Yukon) (for GMC Yukon). The Tahoe and Yukon commenced production in December 2013, with the first completed SUVs being used for testing, and the vehicles were formally delivered to dealerships on February 5, 2014. Following its release, the 2015 Tahoe was crowned the fastest-selling vehicle in February 2014, with sales averaging seven days. GM issued photographs and a press release for the fourth-generation Tahoe and Yukon on September 12, 2013. The front fascias of the Tahoe and Yukon differ from those of its larger brothers, the Suburban and Yukon XL, but they share the majority of design cues from the base of the A-pillars rearward. This features inlaid doors that tuck into the door sills rather than overhanging them, which improves aerodynamics and fuel economy while also reducing interior noise. In order to reduce vehicle weight, the hoods and liftgate panels are now made of aluminum. The SUVs get better fuel economy thanks to a more efficient, direct-injected EcoTec3 powerplant and increased aerodynamics. Both fourth-generation SUVs share no sheetmetal or lighting components with the companies’ full-size pickup trucks, and their front grilles are somewhat different to give them their distinct identity. Projector-beam headlamps surround the Chevrolet iconic dual-port grille – chrome on all models, flowing into the front fenders, while the LTZ trims have high-intensity discharge headlamps and light-emitting diode daytime running lamps.
Also new are fold-flat second- and third-row seats, which are now standard but may be upgraded to include a power-folding capability, as well as an additional two inches of leg room for second-row passengers. A power-tilt, telescoping steering wheel is now offered on the Tahoe. This feature has been carried over from the 2009 to 2014 Yukon Denali, and is now available in the SLT trim as well. The third-row fold-flat feature is achieved by raising the platform, which limits the amount of cargo space accessible behind the third-row seats. When compared to prior Tahoe models, the standard third-row seats and higher “fold-flat” platform significantly restrict available cargo space. Multiple USB ports and power outlets, including one 110-volt, three-prong outlet, have been added to the Tahoe’s interiors, along with an available eight-inch color touch-screen radio with next-generation MyLink connectivity and an available rear-seat entertainment system (but no Blu-ray option, which is exclusive to the Suburban for 2015), while the Yukon has added a s
The Yukon Denali, like the ordinary Yukon, was revamped for the 2007 model year. The most noticeable difference was in the style, which included a flattened rear evocative of the new Tahoe, as well as new grill and headlight forms that made the Yukon appear less aggressive than previous models. The chrome grille and liberal use of chrome accents are the only visual differences between the Yukon Denali and the normal Yukon, as are the insignias, embeveled rockerpanels, chromed headlights, and the Vortec 6200 engine, which it shares with the Cadillac Escalade. The Yukon Denali trim level comes standard with a power-tilting steering wheel for the 2009 model year.
