GMC Acadia 2007-2015 Key Programming Procedure
The following are the key programming procedures for the 2007 and 2015 GMC Acadia.
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 GMC Acadia
The Acadia is GMC’s entry-level truck-like CUV, as well as the brand’s first unibody vehicle. It’s also GMC’s first front-wheel-drive passenger vehicle, and the first of any kind since the GMC Motorhome from 1973 to 1978.
The Acadia has eight seats and is available with front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The Acadia sits between the GMC Terrain and the Yukon in terms of towing capacity, with a capacity of 5,200 lb (2,359 kg). Between the Chevrolet Traverse and the Enclave, the Acadia is the mid-priced Lambda model.
All Acadia (and Saturn Outlook) manufacturing and sales were briefly halted in December 2006 due to an issue with potentially faulty rivets in the cargo floor slightly forward of the vehicle’s rear hatch, as well as an issue with the engine mounts not having holes drilled to drain accumulated water. Within days after the warning, the assembly process had been changed, and dealership sales of the automobiles had resumed.
As the Acadia Limited, the first-generation Acadia was available alongside its second-generation replacement.
Suspension and chassis are two of the most important aspects of a car.
The 2008 Acadia has a wheelbase of 118.9 inches (3,020 mm) and front/rear tracks of 67.28 inches (1,709 mm). MacPherson struts with a direct-acting stabilizer bar and aluminum knuckles make up the independent front suspension. A “H” Linked design is used for the independent rear suspension.
Power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering is standard, with a variable-effort system available as an option. ABS and four-wheel disc brakes are standard. The SLT2 model comes standard with 19-inch cast aluminum wheels and Goodyear Eagle RS-A M+S P255/60R-19 108H tires with a high-pressure compact spare tire, while the SLT1 model comes with 19-inch cast aluminum wheels and Goodyear Eagle RS-A M+S P255/60R-19 108H tires with a high-pressure compact spare tire. P255/65R-18 tires are mounted on 18-inch painted aluminum rims on the SLE variant. 18-inch machined aluminum wheels are standard on the SLT1.
Transmission and engine
The Acadia is powered by GM’s High Feature LY7 V6 engine, which debuted in the Cadillac CTS. The engine in the Acadia produces 275 horsepower (205 kW) and 258 pound-feet (350 Nm) of torque. The new GM-Ford 6-speed automatic transmission is also used in the Acadia.
The direct injected LLT engine produced 288 horsepower (215 kW) and 270 lbft (366 Nm) of torque for the 2009 model year.
A 3.6 L V6 engine produces 288 horsepower (215 kW) at 6,300 rpm and 270 lbft (366 Nm) of torque at 3,400 rpm in the 2012 Acadia.
The 3.6 L V6 engine in the 2016 Acadia Limited produces 310 horsepower (231 kW) and 271 lb ft (367 Nm) of torque.
