How to Program Chevy Key Fob

Woman getting into 2021 Chevrolet Spark

If you are the proud owner of a brand new Chevrolet vehicle, you may be wondering how to program a Chevy key fob. If this is the first vehicle you’ve owned that does not have a traditional key, you may have questions about the Chevy key fob at first. The service team here at Sid Dillon is here to help! We have provided step-by-step instructions for Chevy key fob programming in the handy guide featured below. 


Chevy Key Fob Programming in 8 Easy Steps 

Locate the Chevy remote start key fob you would like to program and follow the guide from Sid Dillon:

  1. Manually unlock your car door with your Chevy key.
  2. Fully close all of the doors on the vehicle. When this is done, insert the key into the ignition. You should not start the car yet. 
  3. Press and hold the unlock button on the driver’s side door, then turn your key to the “On” position. The engine should not go on, but the interior lights and radio will. 
  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. When the unlock button is released, the door locks will engage and disengage. When this happens, you can begin the programming sequence. 
  7. On your Chevy key fob, press and hold the “Unlock” and “Lock” buttons at the same time. Do this until you hear the door locks engage and disengage again. This is an indicator that the key fob has been programmed successfully. 
  8. Re-insert the newly programmed key into the ignition in the “On” position. This will conclude the programming sequence.

Whether you have a Chevy Malibu key fob or a Chevy Silverado key fob, the steps listed above should do the trick. If you come across an issue when you try to program your Chevy key fob, don’t worry. Simply contact our service center and we would be glad to assist you.
