Dodge Key Fob Programming: A Step-by-Step Guide

The team at Hendrick Dodge Cary is well-versed in Dodge technology, and we’re experts when it comes to Dodge key fob programming! We’ll outline the four simple steps to follow for successful programming below. If you have any questions along the way, don’t hesitate to contact us!

  1. Enter your Carrboro Dodge vehicle from the driver’s side with your key fob in one hand and the key itself in the other. Lock the door using your Dodge key fob within 10 seconds of entry.
  2. Insert your key into the ignition and turn it to the “RUN” position while simultaneously holding down the “UNLOCK” button on the key fob.
  3. Continuing to hold down the “UNLOCK” button, press the “PANIC” button for approximately one second. Release both buttons simultaneously.
  4. At this point, your Dodge vehicle should cycle its locks. Once it does, press the “LOCK” and “UNLOCK” buttons, then release them once more. Then, press and release only the “UNLOCK” button.

This should complete your Dodge key fob programming! Test out the key fob to check that it’s working properly.
