Dodge Key Fob Programming: Step by Step

Dodge key fob programming is an easy process to learn. In order to program a Dodge key fob:

  1. Climb into the driver’s seat of your vehicle. Lock the door using your key fob within 10 seconds of entry.
  2. After inserting the key into the ignition, turn it to the “RUN” position while pressing and holding down the “UNLOCK” button on the driver’s door.
  3. Simultaneously hold down the “UNLOCK” button and the “PANIC” button, then release them at the same time.
  4. Now press the “UNLOCK” and “LOCK” buttons at the same time, then release them at the same time.
  5. Press “UNLOCK” once more.

Your key fob should now be recognizable by your Dodge vehicle. To be sure, step out of your Dodge vehicle and test key fob. If these steps didn’t work, contact our service department for help, and our technicians can walk you through the process.

How to Start Your Car With a Dead Key Fob Battery

If you find that your key fob has a low or no battery, never fear! You can still start your Dodge vehicle:

  1. Locate the analog key hidden inside the key fob. To do this, flip the fob over, slide the switch at the top left, and pull out the silver key. You may now unlock your doors.
  2. For safekeeping, place the key back inside the key fob.
  3. With your foot on the brake, push the start button with the Dodge key fob.
