Chevy Key Fob Programming Guide

Whether you have a Chevy Malibu key fob, a Chevy Silverado key fob, or a general Chevy remote start key fob, the steps on how to program them are similar. That way, you can be on your way to Saugerties in no time. Follow these simple Chevy key fob programming steps below to get started:

  1. Begin by unlocking your door manually with your Chevy key.
  2. Ensure all the car doors are fully shut.
  3. Insert your key into the ignition but don’t turn on the car.
  4. While you press and hold the unlock button on the driver’s side door, turn your key to the “on” position. All of your interior accessories should be on, but the engine should not have started.
  5. In this sequence, turn the key to the “off” position, then “on,” then back “off.” It should look like this: On – off – on – off.
  6. Let go of the unlock button on your Chevy key fob.
  7. All of your door locks should lock and unlock, letting you know that you can begin programming your Chevy Malibu key fob, Chevy Silverado key fob, or general Chevy remote start key fob.
  8. Once again, press and hold the lock and unlock buttons simultaneously until you hear the doors lock and unlock. This confirms that your Chevy key fob programming is complete.
  9. Insert the new programmed key and turn the ignition to the “on” position to complete the programming sequence.
