I'm looking for the 10 million steps required to reprogram the keyless entry fob for a 2009 Pontiac Montana SV6.

Do you have an owner's manual? I'd check there first. – Cᴏʀʏ Apr 7 '11 at 20:26
Yeah, it just says that it is possible. I just broke down and took it to the dealership. I remember for my Focus, you turn the key in the ignition 3 times, put the signal light to the right, lock the doors, then press the keyless fob buttons all at once (or something like that). I was hoping there would be something similar for the montana, but I think the dealers have to do them. – mlsteeves Apr 8 '11 at 0:54

No idea if this works on a 2009, but it's worth a shot. The programming procedure on some GM vehicles (2006 Cobalt at least) requires a GM Tech 2, which is highly annoying. Hopefully linked song and dance works for yours.
