How to Program a Keyless Entry for a Corvetteby Travis Corkery
Keyless entry to cars has become a standard feature on most new cars. This article explains the process of programming the keyless entry system of a 2005 to 2008 Corvette, but it will not work on older models. This procedure is for adding additional key fobs to the system. If the maximum of four key fobs are already in the system, this procedure will not work.
Turn the ignition off, and open the rear compartment of the vehicle. Place a programed keyless entry fob into the vehicles interior compartment.
Head to the rear of the vehicle and locate the lock cylinder. You will find it above the license plate. Insert the metal key and turn it five times. The vehicles DIC (driver information center) will display "Ready for Fob X." X may be any number between 1 and 4, depending on the number of transmitters already programmed to the vehicle. If the DIC displays "Max Fobs Learned" then four remotes are already programmed to the car and this procedure will not work.
Place the fob in the glove box fob pocket. You will hear a beep. Test the fob's function after programming to verify that the procedure was performed correctly.
Exit programming mode by pressing the "Off/ACC" portion of the vehicle's ignition switch.
