How to Program the Keyless Entry on a Pontiac Grand Prix

by Matthew Fortuna

The keyless entry programming on a Pontiac Grand Prix is a tool that is standard on all Grand Prix cars in the late 2000s, and it can be bought cheaply from many automotive stores. These systems are useful in remotely entering your car doors and trunk. The easy programming can be done at home with only a remote and your car.

Enter your car, sit in the driver's seat and close all of the doors, windows and the trunk on your car.

Insert your key in the ignition on your Grand Prix and turn the key one click to the left to the "Accessory" option within the ignition options. Wait for your car to signal the programming sequence with a short beep, and turn the key back to the right one click, and then back to the left quickly.

Open the door on your Grand Prix, and then shut it quickly after you hear another short beep.

Press both the unlock and lock buttons on your keyless entry for your Grand Prix and hold these buttons for 15 seconds.

Wait for the beep after releasing the buttons, remove the key from the ignition, and open the door on your Pontiac Grand Prix to test the programming sequence.
