How to Program a Keyless Entry for a 1998 Corvette

by Abby Vaun

The keyless remote entry for your 1998 Corvette enables you to lock and unlock doors from a distance as well as pop the trunk, sound a panic alarm and arm and disarm the theft-deterrent system. If you've lost your remote or have purchased additional remotes and need to program them, you can activate the FOB programming mode from the front seat of your Corvette. You can program up to three remotes.

Insert the key in the ignition and turn it to the "On" position.

Push the "Reset" button on the Driver Information Center (DIC).

Push the DIC "Options" button until you see a blank display.

Push and hold the "Reset" button for 2 seconds.

Push the "Reset" button when you see "FOB Training" in the DIC. You'll then see "LK + UNLK 1st FOB" displayed.

Push and hold the "Lock" and "Unlock" buttons on the remote at the same time. Hold them for about 15 seconds. Once the remote is programmed, you'll see "FOB Learned" in the DIC.

Repeat step 6 to program additional remotes.
