Chevy Key Fob Programming: A Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Manually unlock your car door using your Chevy key.
  2. Make sure that all of the car doors are fully shut, and then insert the key into the ignition, but do not start the car.
  3. Press and hold the unlock button on the driver’s side door, and then turn your key to the “On” position without starting the vehicle. The interior lights and radio will come on.
  4. Turn the key back to the “Off” position, and turn it to “On” and “Off” once again in quick succession (On – Off – On – Off).
  5. Release the unlock button.
  6. Once you’ve released the unlock button, you should hear the door locks cycle. This tells you that the programming sequence can begin.
  7. On your Chevy key fob, press and hold the “Unlock” and “Lock” buttons at the same time until you hear the door locks engage and disengage again to indicate that you have successfully programmed your key fob.
  8. Re-insert the newly programmed key into the ignition and turn it to the “On” position to end the programming sequence.
