How to Program a Yukon XL GMC Garage Door Opener

by Thomas West

GMC, a subsidiary of General Motors, has been making light trucks and sport utility vehicle since the early 20th century. The GMC Yukon XL is a full-sized sport utility vehicle based on the Chevrolet Suburban. The Yukon XL is available in half ton and three quarter ton models, as well as two- or four-wheel drive. By programming the universal home remote system on your Yukon, you can eliminate your garage door opener's hand held transmitter.

Park your Yukon outside the garage before beginning. Keep people and pets away from the garage door opening.

Push down and hold the two outer buttons on the universal home remote system on your Yukon, located above the windshield on the driver's side of the cabin. Continue to hold down the buttons until the universal home remote light starts to flash, which usually takes 20 seconds. Do not hold the buttons down for more than 30 seconds.

Hold your hand held garage door opener transmitter approximately one to three inches away from the universal home remote buttons, keeping the flashing light in view.

Press both the hand held garage door opener button and any one of the three buttons on the universal home remote system at the same time and hold them down. Continue to hold down both buttons while the universal home remote light flashes slowly, then more rapidly. Release both buttons after the light goes out.

Push down and hold the button on the universal home remote that you have chosen to open the garage door. Note that the light should stay on constantly if the button has been programmed successfully. Release the button.

Push and release the button on the universal home remote to open or close the garage door. Keep the hand held remote that came with the garage door opener for use in other vehicles or as a spare.

Tip

  • check If you should decide to sell your Yukon, it is recommended that you erase the codes in your universal home remote to eliminate unwanted access to your home. The codes can be erased by pushing down the two outer buttons on the universal home remote until the light begins to flash, then releasing the buttons.
