How to Program a Remote for a 2002 Camaro

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

The Chevrolet Camaro came standard with a keyless remote in the 2002 model year if the car had power door locks. The 2002 model year car was the last Camaro produced until General Motors reintroduced it for 2010. You can program a keyless remote, sometimes called a key fob, to your 2002 Camaro in about five minutes. If you have trouble programming the remote, pry it apart and replace its battery.

Step 1

Insert your key in the ignition. Turn it to "Run," wait a few seconds, and then turn it off. This disarms the car's alarm system.

Step 2

Open the driver's door and inspect the driver's-side edge of the dashboard. Here you'll see the main fuse panel. Pull the handle on the panel to remove it.

Step 3

Remove the fuse labeled "Radio." It is in the bottom-right corner of the fuse block.

Step 4

Turn the key from "Off" to "Run" three times. Stop turning when you reach "Run" the last time. You must do this within five seconds. After you do, you'll hear the power door locks operate.

Step 5

Press and hold the "Lock" and "Unlock" buttons on the Camaro's remote. Wait 15 seconds. You'll hear the door locks operate again. Release the buttons. If you want to program another remote, hold the same buttons on it for 15 additional seconds.

Step 6

Turn the key off and remove it. Insert the "Radio" fuse back in its slot and push the fuse panel back into place.
