GMC Yukon 2007-2014 Key Programming Procedure
The following are the key programming procedures for the 2007 and 2014 GMC Yukon.
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 Yukon
The Chevrolet Tahoe and its GMC Yukon equivalent are full-size SUVs from General Motors that have been available since 1994 and 1991, respectively. Since 1982, Chevrolet and GMC have produced two different-sized SUVs under the ‘Blazer’ and ‘Jimmy’ nameplates, with the smaller S-10 Blazer and GMC S-15 Jimmy joining the full-size Blazer and Jimmy models for the 1983 model year. This state of affairs persisted throughout the early 1990s. In 1991, GMC rebadged the full-size Jimmy as the ‘Yukon.’ Chevrolet, on the other hand, waited until 1994 to rename the full-size Blazer the ‘Tahoe’ and rebadge the rebuilt mid-size S-10 Blazer as the ‘new Blazer.’ The rough and picturesque terrain surrounding Lake Tahoe in the western United States is known as Tahoe. Yukon is the name given to the Yukon territory in northern Canada. The Tahoe and Yukon received a new, longer 4-door variant for the 1995 model year, which fit in between the 2-door models and the larger wheelbase, higher passenger capacity Chevrolet Suburban and its newly dubbed GMC ‘Yukon XL’ twin.
The Tahoe is available in left-hand drive in North America, portions of Asia such as the Philippines and the Middle East, and other nations such as Bolivia, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, and Angola. Only North America and the Middle East get the Yukon.
General Motors’ full-size SUV lineup now includes the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon. Longer wheelbase variants are available for both the Chevrolet Suburban and the GMC Yukon XL. In 1998, a luxurious Denali model was added to the Yukon inventory for the 1999 model year. The Yukon XL Denali was introduced in 2001 as a Denali version of the Yukon XL. The Cadillac Escalade is very similar to the Yukon Denali versions. According to U.S. News & World Report’s rankings as of February 2014, the 2014 Tahoe was the top-ranked Affordable Large SUV.
The Ford Expedition is the Tahoe’s major rival, although it also faces up against the Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada.
The Tahoe has consistently been the best-selling full-size SUV in the United States, outselling its rivals by a factor of two.
The new GMC Yukon replaced the 2nd generation (K5) Jimmy in 1991 for the 1992 model year, although Chevrolet continued to use the Blazer moniker on their 3rd generation K5 model through the 1994 model year. Hardtops that could be removed were no longer available. Through 1994, all models had a full-length steel roof and were 2-door wagons exclusively.
However, for the 1995 model year, the ‘Blazer’ moniker was dropped, and the car was reintroduced as the Chevrolet Tahoe, with both brands offering all-new, longer 4-door versions. Janesville Assembly began producing four-door Yukon and Tahoe models on January 20, 1995.
The Tahoe was named Truck of the Year by Motor Trend magazine in 1996. It is named after Lake Tahoe in the United States, which is located on the California-Nevada border.
