How to Program the Keyless Entry in a 2006 Chevy Uplander

by Matthew Fortuna

The Chevrolet Uplander is a popular sport utility vehicle that offers a variety of Chevy's top technologies. Among these, the 2006 model is equipped with keyless entry capabilities. With a keyless entry system installed, you can remotely control the doors, locks, panic alarm and engine starter on your vehicle from a few hundred feet away. You can program the remotes for the system in just minutes from your car, using only your ignition key.

Enter your 2006 Uplander with your keyless remote and ignition key, and shut all of the vehicle doors behind you.

Insert your key into the ignition and press and hold the "Unlock" switch on the driver's side door. You will have to hold it through the next step.

Cycle the key in the ignition to the "On" position and then back to the "Off" position twice in quick order.

Release the "Unlock" tab on the driver's side power locks and wait for the vehicle to cycle the locks. The programming sequence will now be active and you can set the remote.

Press and hold both the lock and unlock buttons on your remote until the locks cycle again. This could take as long as 30 seconds to complete.

Cycle the ignition switch to the "On" position to end the programming sequence.
