Chevy Keyless Entry Remotes

Have you lost your keyless remote for your Chevy or GMC? Did you buy a vehicle that only came with one (I did!). Did you pay upwards of $80 or $100 to have the dealer sell and program one for you?

We highly recommend our premier vendor GM Parts Club for Chevy Remotes ... they have everything in stock and low prices to boot.

Contact them today or search by the part number (look on the back of the remote if you have one).

My Driver 1 fob went the way of the Do-Do!

I didn't know they could be reprogrammed. I changed the battery, and... nothing. I thought the transmitter went bad. I'll definitely give this a shot!

two things.....just go here to get your key fob and according to the website you have to have the GM Tech 2 to program the key fob so you have to go to the dealer unless you have a friend with one :great:


P.s. also when you get a new key fob and program it you will have to re-program all key fobs associated with that vehicle

If you are going for a factory remote starter option (assuming there is one), then I'd say probably most of the wiring is in place for it. If you are going with an aftermarket remote start kit, then the wiring is NOT there. To the installer it will be a normal install to them, hunting for the appropriate lines, tieing into them, etc. It may even be a bit more difficult and costly with all the new computer systems and key security and such...

2005 Chevy Suburban Keyless Entry Remote fob programming instructons

1. Close all vehicle doors.
2. Insert the key into the ignition.
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver’s door panel-continue to hold down until instructed
to release in step 9.
4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine).
6. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
8. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
9. Release the power unlock button on the door panel. The vehicle will lock and unlock the doors automatically.
10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously until the door locks and unlocks.
This step may take up to 30 seconds.
11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional transmitter (including any existing transmitters).
12. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position in order to exit the transmitter programming mode.
Hi new here:happy: and did a search to reprogram my 2000 Silverado 1500 Z71 key fobs.
These instructions worked great and saved me the cash to have it redone by the dealer.

I will stick around this board, looks like a nice place to hang out.

I have a 2001 Tahoe and I have a keyless entry fob that I replaced the battery in and it is not working. I tried the steps and after letting go of the unlock button on the drivers door the locks to cycly. But then when I hold down the lock and unlock button on the fob it does not cycle again and still does not work. I have a remot starter, not sure if that is causing my issue. Please help

Hello, we are in the process of purchasing a new Silverado and have asked the dealer if it's possible to get a keyless remote. They are saying they cannot do, but will provide info on where we can obtain. Opinions on whether they truly cannot do or don't want to include this extra in our deal. Thanks for the help.

It all depends on the YMM (Year, Make and Model). There is a transmitter and a receiver for each keyless entry vehicle, and it can be done. Some dealers don't want to bother, but a lot of the time there is no "programming" involved with the computer, you can do the steps yourself sitting in the drivers seat.

If anyone else is in this boat, I suggest that you give us a call, or call around to your local dealers until you can find someone who can say with certainty.
