We’ll teach you how to program a Chevy key fob step by step, as well as discuss what you can do if you lose your Chevy key fob.

Chevy Key Fob Programming Steps

If you are ready to cruise around in your new car, learn how to program your Chevy Malibu key fob or Chevy Silverado key fob by following these easy steps — no matter what model you drive, these Chevy key fob programming instructions will apply:

  1. Use the key blade rather than the buttons on the Chevy key fob to manually unlock the driver’s side door.
  2. Enter your vehicle and ensure that all doors are shut.
  3. While inserting the key into the ignition, press and hold the unlock button on the driver’s side door. Turn the key to the “On” position but do not start your engine.
  4. As you continue to hold down the unlock button on the driver’s door, turn your key to the “Off” position, then turn to “On” and quickly back to “Off,” following an On – Off – On – Off pattern.
  5. Release the unlock button on the driver’s door.
  6. Once you release the unlock button, you will hear the door locks engage and then disengage. This will be the signal that you can begin your Chevy key fob programming.
  7. Press and hold the “Lock” and “Unlock” buttons on your Chevy key fob simultaneously. Once you hear the door locks engage and disengage again, you will know that you have successfully programmed your Chevy key fob.
  8. Insert your newly programmed Chevy key fob into the ignition and turn it to the “On” position. This will complete your Chevy key fob programming!
