Programming a car remote is easier than you think. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete. Here are the steps to follow:

  • Step 1: Get into your car and close all the doors, then turn on the ignition.
  • Step 2:  Press the “lock” button on the remote key
  • Step 3: Turn the key to the “Off” position and repeat the process three more times in quick succession. Once you complete this process, you’ll hear a lock sound which means the system is in programming mode. 
  • Step 4: Once you’ve entered the programming mode, press the “lock” button within five seconds and release it. 
  • Step 5: Turn off the ignition, remove the key and test the results.

These are the simple steps to follow when programming your car remote. Before you get started, ensure your car remote battery is in good condition.
If you follow this process and still have problems, it’s a good idea to call a locksmith to help you.

How To Replace Car Remote

Whether your car remote has stopped working or it’s damaged beyond repair, having it replaced is an easy process. Simply find a reliable “locksmith near me” and let them replace your car remote. Even if you don’t have the original car remote, a dependable locksmith will use your car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) to make a new car remote for your car.

The law requires locksmiths to ask car owners to provide proof of ownership to prevent scenarios where car thieves steal someone’s car and replace the car remote.
