How to Program a Dodge Key Fob

Dodge key fob

If you’re like most of our Chatham customers, you like the convenience of keyless entry. By now, most of us have gotten used to the convenience of being able to unlock or lock all of your car’s doors from a distance with just the push of a button. But what happens if your car suddenly stops recognizing your key fob?

Don’t panic! The friendly service staff at Green Dodge in Springfield will be happy to help. They’re experts at Dodge key fob programming. We’ve also put together the handy guide below on how to program a Dodge key fob yourself.

Dodge Key Fob Programming: Step-by-Step Guide

Dodge key fob programming is a breeze and can be done in less than five minutes, which is something DIYers should be glad to hear! Just follow these six easy steps:

  1. Get behind the wheel of your vehicle and lock the door with your key fob within ten seconds after entry.
  2. Put your key in the ignition and turn it on while holding down the “UNLOCK” button.
  3. Hold down both the “UNLOCK” button and the “PANIC” button, then release them both at the same time.
  4. Hold down both the “UNLOCK” button and the “LOCK” button, then release them both at the same time.
  5. Press “UNLOCK” again.
  6. Test to see if your car now recognizes the key fob by getting out of the vehicle, locking it, then trying to unlock it with the key fob.

What If the Key Fob Still Doesn’t Work?

If after completing the above process you’re still getting no response from your car when pushing any of the buttons on your Dodge key fob, programming may not be the answer. It may simply be a matter of the battery being dead. In that case, replacing the battery should fix the problem. If you’re still having issues, schedule service with us!
