How to Program the Remote Key for a Chrysler Pacifica

by Ashley Hay

The Chrysler Pacifica is crossover between a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) and a Station Wagon. Chrysler manufactured the Pacifica from 2004 until 2008. One of the many upgraded features that the Pacifica offered was a remote key for keyless entry. After purchasing an additional key from the Chrysler dealership, you have the option to program the remote yourself, as it may prove expensive to have it programmed by the dealership's mechanics.

1

Insert your first valid remote key into the Chrysler Pacifica's ignition and turn the key toward the front of the car to start the engine. Turn the key toward you to turn the engine off. Remove the key after approximately five seconds. Do not exceed 15 seconds, or you will have to repeat this step.

2

Insert your second valid remote key into the Pacifica's ignition and turn the key toward the front of the car to start the engine. This must be accomplished within 15 seconds of removing the first key. After approximately 10 seconds of the second key being inserted into the ignition, you will hear a chime and the "Theft Alarm" (located next to the speedometer) light will begin to flash.

3

Turn the second key toward you to turn the engine off. Remove the second key.

4

Insert the new key into the ignition and turn the key toward the front of the car to start the engine. This must be accomplished within 60 seconds of removing the second key. After approximately 10 seconds, you will hear a chime and the "Theft Alarm" light will stop flashing and stay lit for approximately three seconds, and then turn off. The remote programming has been successful.
