How to Reset GMC IntelliLink

GMC IntelliLink

There are lots of perks that come with securing the keys to a new GMC vehicle in Happy Valley! For starters, you’ll gain access to a wide range of advanced in-vehicle technology systems, including GMC IntelliLink. Through IntelliLink, you can sync your smartphone with your touchscreen infotainment display via Bluetooth® wireless connectivity, allowing for hands-free phone calls and messaging, audio streaming, and more. But if your GMC IntelliLink system ever malfunctions, what should you do? Weston Buick GMC, Inc. provides step-by-step instructions showing you how to reset GMC IntelliLink in the guide below! 

What is IntelliLink?

IntelliLink is GMC’s premier infotainment system, first introduced to its truck and SUV lineup on the 2012 GMC Terrain. Almost a decade later, every new GMC now comes standard with an infotainment system and a touchscreen display. Using IntelliLink and the touchscreen display, you can access all of your favorite smartphone apps, streaming services, contacts, and more while on the go in Portland and Beaverton. 

Check for GMC IntelliLink Updates

Before you move forward with resetting your entertainment system, we recommend checking for software updates. If you happened to miss a software update or a GMC IntelliLink Navigation upgrade, it could be the cause of any issues you may be experiencing.

  1. Under the ‘System’ tab of your display screen, click through to ‘Vehicle Software’ and look for ‘Updates’
  2. Select ‘Software Information’ and look for ‘System Update’

If there is a GMC IntelliLink update available, it will download. Once it’s downloaded, you’ll be prompted with on-screen steps to install it.

Steps to Resetting the GMC IntelliLink

If you’re experiencing issues with your entertainment system and there are no software updates available, you can get GMC IntelliLink support by calling GMC’s assistance line at 1-800-462-8782. However, resetting the GMC IntelliLink system on your own is pretty simple! Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Navigate to your GMC IntelliLink home screen and click on ‘Settings’
  2. Select ‘Return to Factory Settings’
  3. You’ll be offered three options: Restore Vehicle Settings, Clear All Private Data, or Restore Radio Settings. For our purposes, select ‘Restore Vehicle Settings’
  4. When prompted to either Continue or Cancel, click ‘Continue’
  5. At this point, you can navigate back to the home screen and your system should be reset

Note: Before you restore GMC IntelliLink to factory settings, know that the personal settings you’ve enabled will be erased and you will be starting with a fresh, unprogrammed entertainment system. If there are GMC IntelliLink apps you’ve downloaded, they may be removed from your infotainment screen.
