An exciting, essential part of many Palmetto vehicles is the high-tech Chevy key fob.

Learning about Chevy key fob programming and the full range of possibilities means you can take advantage of all that your new vehicle has to offer. Read through the Cox Chevrolet experts’ guide on how to program a Chevy key fob, whether you use a new Chevy Malibu key fob, a Chevy Silverado key fob, or any other Chevy key fob in this stellar lineup.

Chevy Key Fob Programming

For exceptional convenience on your Brandon travels, learning how to program a Chevy key fob is a necessity. Fortunately, Chevy key fob programming is a cinch:

  1. Manually unlock the driver’s side from the exterior, as opposed to using the button on your Chevy key fob. 
  2. Once you enter your vehicle, make sure that all four doors are shut properly.
  3. While simultaneously holding down the unlock button on the driver’s door and pressing the unlock button on your fob, insert your key into your Chevy ignition. Turn the key to the “On” position so your lights and radio turn on, but not all the way on.
  4. While still holding down the unlock button on your driver’s side door, turn your key back to the “Off” position, then turn it to “On,” and right back to “Off”,” all in quick succession. (On – Off – On – Off)
  5. Let go of the unlock button.
  6. Upon releasing the unlock button, you’ll hear the door locks engage and disengage. This means the programming sequence is ready to begin.
  7. Now on the Chevy key fob, press and hold both the “Unlock” and “Lock” buttons until you hear the door locks engage and disengage again. This symbolizes that you have successfully programmed your Chevy key fob!
  8. You can reinsert the newly programmed key back into the ignition, turning to the “On” position to end the programming. 
  9. That’s it! You’ve learned exactly how to program a Chevy key fob.
