car insurance paperwork with car key

If you’ve just gotten your new Chevy vehicle, and you’re struggling with programming the Chevy key fob, you’re not alone. Many of our customers near Royal Oak who have recently gotten their new Chevy and transitioned away from the traditional key are unsure of how the Chevy key fob programming works. The service team at Champion Hargreaves Chevrolet has provided you with clear step-by-step instructions to make the Chevy key fob programming easier!

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

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.

This makes it easy for Madison Heights to get their Chevy key fob operating in no time, as it works regardless of the model of Chevy you went with. And as always, if you have any questions, you can contact us to receive additional help!
