How to Program Chevy Key Fob

After purchasing a new Chevrolet car, truck, or SUV, you’re probably excited to start taking advantage of the Chevy remote start key fob. But if it’s been a while since you’ve gotten behind the wheel of a brand new car and you’re used to the traditional key fob with little more than a lock and unlock button, you may be wondering how to program a Chevy key fob. Thankfully, the team at Hendrick Chevrolet Shawnee Mission is here to help! Chevy key fob programming is simpler than many Kansas City drivers initially imagine – explore our step-by-step guide down below!

How to Complete Chevy Key Fob Programming

Prepped with your Chevy remote start key fob in hand, you can get started on Chevy key fob programming. Simply follow the steps outlined below!

  1. Manually unlock your car door using the lock on the driver’s side exterior, rather than using the button on your key fob.
  2. Step inside your vehicle, ensuring all four doors are securely shut.
  3. Press and hold the unlock button on the driver’s door while simultaneously inserting your key into the ignition. Turn the key to the “On” position, but do not turn the car on all the way. Your interior lights and radio will turn on, but do not ignite the engine.
  4. Continuing to hold down the unlock button on your door, turn your key back to the “Off” position, then turn it to “On” and right back to “Off” once more in quick succession. (On – Off – On – Off)
  5. Release the unlock button.
  6. Upon releasing the unlock button on your door, you’ll hear the door locks engage and disengage, signaling that the programming sequence can begin.
  7. On the Chevy key fob, press and hold the “Unlock” and “Lock” buttons simultaneously until you hear the door locks engage and disengage again. This indicates that you have successfully programmed the Chevy key fob.
  8. Re-insert the programmed key back into the ignition to the “On” position, ending the programming sequence.

Whether you have a Chevy Malibu key fob or a Chevy Silverado key fob, you can follow these simple steps to program it. And if you have any questions along the way, don’t hesitate to give our service team a call at (913) 305-3320!
