How to Reprogram Key Fobs Yourself


Key fobs, also known as keyless entry remotes, are useful in controlling your car’s locks, trunk, panic alarm and even remote starter from hundreds of feet away. These remotes are wirelessly programmed to your vehicle and can be reprogrammed as often as you would like if the signal is lost or if you need a replacement remote. Reprogramming takes only seconds and will have your remote ready to use immediately.

Step 1

Enter your vehicle with your remote and ignition key and close all of the doors behind you.

Step 2

Turn the car to the “On” position, press the “Lock” button on your fob and turn the key back to the “Off” position.
