Wondering how to program a Dodge key fob? It’s easier than you might think! Midway Auto Dealerships has created the helpful guide below for Grand Island Dodge owners. Follow the steps shown to program or reprogram a remote for your Dodge Journey, Charger, Durango, or another model.

Dodge Key Fob Programming: The Steps

If you purchase a new Dodge vehicle with standard keyless entry, you won’t have to worry about programming the key fob yourself. The dealership will take care of it for you. However, if you purchase a keyless entry system later down the road, you’ll need to program the remote. Here’s how:

  • From inside your car, press and release the LOCK button on your keyless entry remote five times in ten seconds.
  • Insert the key into the ignition. Turn the key to RUN and press and hold the UNLOCK button on the remote.
  • Keep holding UNLOCK while you press the PANIC button and hold for one second.
  • Release both buttons at the same time.
  • The car will cycle its locks. Afterward, press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote key and release.
  • Press and release the UNLOCK button to finish.

How to Reprogram a Dodge Key Fob

Reprogramming a key fob is necessary if you purchase a new one. Replacement remotes are easy to program:

  • Enter your car. Press the LOCK button on the key fob remote five times within ten seconds.
  • Place your key in the ignition and turn to RUN.
  • Press and hold UNLOCK for four seconds, then press PANIC without taking your finger off UNLOCK.
  • Release the buttons simultaneously.
  • Press and release LOCK and UNLOCK, then press and hold UNLOCK until the car cycles its locks.
  • You can now remove the key from the ignition and test the remote.
