Chevy Key Fob Programming: A Step-by-Step Guide

With the Chevy remote start key fob you would like to program in hand, follow these simple steps:

  1. Manually unlock your car door with your Chevy key.
  2. Ensure all car doors are fully shut, then insert the key into the ignition, but don’t start the car.
  3. Press and hold the unlock button on the driver’s side door, then turn your key to the “On” position. The interior lights and radio will come on, but the engine should not be ignited.
  4. Turn the key back to the “Off” position, then turn it to “On” and right back to “Off” once again in quick succession. (On – Off – On – Off) 
  5. Release the unlock button.
  6. After releasing the unlock button, you should hear the door locks engage and disengage, telling you that the programming sequence can begin.
  7. On your Chevy key fob, press and hold the “Unlock” and “Lock” buttons simultaneously until you hear the door locks engage and disengage again, indicating that you have successfully programmed your key fob. 
  8. Re-insert the newly programmed key into the ignition in the “On” position to end the programming sequence.
