How to Program a Key FOB for the Chevy

by Tiffany Raiford

Most late model Chevrolet vehicles come equipped with keyless entry remotes, also known as key fobs. Keyless entry is a method of controlling your door locks and trunk release without using your key in the doors. Each key fob for every Chevy must be programmed for its own particular vehicle. While your keys are already programmed when you purchase your Chevy, if you obtain new or replacement keys they will need programming to work with your car.

Step 1

Get into your Chevy vehicle. All doors must be closed.

Step 2

Place your key into the ignition of your vehicle and hold the "Unlock" button located on the driver's door panel of the car.

Step 3

Turn the key in the ignition as far as you can without actually starting the engine and turn the key back to the "Off" position. Do this twice.

Step 4

Remove your hand from the "Unlock" button on the door panel. Your Chevy will then lock and unlock itself automatically.

Step 5

Hold the "Lock" and "Unlock" buttons simultaneously on your key fob until the doors of your Chevy automatically lock and unlock themselves one more time.

Test your keyless entry remotes.
