How to Program a Key Fob for a Chrysler

Save

Many Chrysler vehicles are equipped with "key fobs," also called "keyless remotes," that can be easily programmed at home. In addition to Chrysler products, these instructions will also work for Dodge, Plymouth and Jeep vehicles, as long as the key fob looks like the one shown in the photo.

Press and hold the "unlock" button on your functional key fob. Hold the button for five seconds, and then hold the "panic" button for one second (while still holding the "unlock" button).

Step 3

Release both buttons simultaneously. Listen for a chime to signal that the key fob is in programming mode. If you don't hear the chime, start the procedure over.

Tips & Warnings

  • Repeat the process to program a total of four remote key fobs to your Chrysler vehicles.
  • Look closely at the picture of the key fob. If your key fob does not look like this, you cannot program it at home. Key fobs with internal keys (many 2006 and newer Chrysler vehicles) must be programmed at a Chrysler dealer. The entire key must be programmed.
  • If you do not currently have a functional key fob, you cannot program a new one. Only a Chrysler dealer can help you reset the system and program a key fob from scratch.
