Default how to program uplander keyless entry fob diy?

i know the vehicle had one from the factory because the prior owner had a working one the first time i test drove it... they lost it before i bought the van. i have an unprogrammed remote fob but its been slow-going searching for programming directions... i have an elm327, but havent tried forscan. any tips? thanks

It depends on the car, but, the recommendation would be to get it reprogrammed using a GM Tech-II Scanner.

No way to program without a scan tool or programmer, and not one of the cheap ones
Either dealer or locksmith (usually cheaper).
I have a Snap-On MODIS and was able to use it.

i wonder if forscan can do it, but unfortunately i will likely never take the time to mess with it
