GMC Sierra 2014-2016 Key Programming Procedure




The following are the key programming procedures for GMC Sierra for the year 2014 and 2016.

Programming with a Recognized Key (Key Vehicles Only)

Up to eight (8) keys can be programmed to the vehicle.


1. Insert the original, already programmed key in the ignition and turn the key to the ON/RUN position.
2. Turn the key to LOCK/OFF, and remove the key.
3. Insert the new key to be programmed and turn it to the ON/RUN position within five (5) seconds. The security light will turn off once the key has been programmed.
4. Repeat steps 1-5 if additional keys are to be programmed. If a key is lost or damaged, see your dealer to have a new key made.


Program a new key to the vehicle when a recognizable key is not available. Canadian regulations
require that Canadian owners see their dealer.

If there are no currently recognized keys available, follow this procedure to program the first key.



This procedure will take approximately 30 minutes to complete for the first key.

The vehicle must be off and all of the keys must be with you.

1. Insert the new vehicle key into the ignition.
2. Turn to ON/RUN. The security light will come on.
3. Wait 10 minutes until the security light turns off.
4. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.
5. Repeat steps 2-4 two more times. After the third time, turn to ON/RUN; the key is learned and all previously known keys will no longer work the vehicle.

Remaining keys can be learned by following the procedure in “Programming with a Recognized Key (Key Vehicles Only).”


About GMC Sierra

The 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 is a good used pickup truck all around. It has a standard V6 engine that can handle most towing needs, as well as a V8 engine that can tow up to 12,000 pounds. Its inside – above the base trim – is a mix of high-quality materials and technology, and it has a plethora of standard and optional safety measures.

The standard engine in the 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 is a 285-horsepower V6. There are two V8 engines available: a 5.3-liter and a 6.2-liter, with 355 and 420 horsepower, respectively. Rear-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission are standard, with four-wheel drive optional on select variants. Fuel economy ratings from the EPA range from 18 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway (rear-wheel-drive V6) to 14 mpg in the city and 20 on the motorway (front-wheel-drive V6) (420-horspower V8 with 4WD).

When properly equipped, the 2014 Sierra 1500 with the 6.2-liter V8 can tow up to 12,000 pounds. With the 5.3-liter engine, the Sierra can tow up to 11,500 pounds, while the V6 engine can tow up to 7,600 pounds. The Sierra is offered in three bed lengths: 68, 78, and 96 inches.

The Sierra 1500 has a quiet, comfortable ride for a pickup truck thanks to lightweight wheels, low-resistance tires, and other upgrades. It also has a very small turning radius.
The Sierra 1500 Regular Cab seats three people, while Crew Cab and Double Cab variants seat up to six. A three-person bench seat is normal, however bucket seats are available on select versions.

The Crew Cab variant provides more back seat room than the Double Cab. The four independent doors on the Double Cab make it easier to enter and depart the rear seats. (Some competitors’ back doors can only be opened after the front doors have been opened.) Cloth seats are standard, however vinyl is available in the base model and leather is available in higher trims.

It can be tough to find a comfortable driving position. The steering wheel does not line up with the driver’s seat, and the normal manual tilt steering wheel only comes with telescoping in the high-end SLT model.

The base Sierra 1500 Regular Cab comes with only manual windows and mirrors and a four-speaker stereo. In higher versions, amenities such as dual-zone automatic climate control, GMC’s IntelliLink touch-screen infotainment system, an enhanced Bose sound system, GPS, five USB ports, and satellite radio may be available. The IntelliLink system is well-known for its user-friendliness.
