Couple approaching a 2020 Chevrolet Sonic

Each new Chevy vehicle includes so many high-tech features that you might not know how to use all of them right off the bat. One of the most popular conveniences around Decorah and West Union is the Chevy key fob, and Birdnow Dealerships is here to help you learn Chevy key fob programming like a pro. Whether you’ve got a Chevy Equinox or Chevy Malibu key fob in hand, let us guide you through the process.

What Does Chevy Key Fob Do?

Your Chevy key fob gives you remote and secure access to your car, so you don’t have to fuss with a ring of keys every morning in Prairie du Chien. If your vehicle is equipped with Chevy Remote Start, key fob access is quick and simple. You don’t even need to get your fob out of your pocket or purse to unlock your doors. Other built-in features include options like keyless open, keyless start, and liftgate access.

Chevy Key Fob Programming

Now you know what it does, so let’s learn how to program a Chevy key fob. This universal method will work whether you’ve got a Chevy Malibu or Chevy Silverado key fob.

  • Unlock the driver’s side door manually.
  • Get inside your vehicle and make sure all doors are shut.
  • Hold down the unlock button on your driver’s door while pressing unlock on your fob.
  • Hold the buttons, insert your key into the car’s ignition, and twist it to the “On” position.
  •  Twist the key to the “Off” position. Repeat this process twice (on-off – on-off).
  • Release the unlock button.
  • If you hear the doors lock and unlock, you have successfully programmed your Chevy key fob.
  • Reinsert the key into the ignition to the “On” position to turn off the programming sequence.

Still, having trouble? Feel free to get in touch with our service department. You may need a few extra tips to get going or even a fresh Chevy key fob battery.
