ATTENTION: You MUST HAVE one working remote to add one more to the system. If you do not have one working remote right now then these instructions will not work. You will have to have a Locksmith or dealership use a computer to program the first remote for you.

Click here to find a Locksmith in your area to program this remote.
1. Enter your vehicle and close all doors.

2. Fasten your seat belt ( fastening the seat belt will cancel any chiming that may
confuse you during this programming procedure.)

3. Place key into the ignition.

4. Turn the ignition to the ON position ( DO NOT START THE ENGINE )

5. Press and hold the UNLOCK button on a working remote.


6. Continue to hold the UNLOCK button, wait at least 4 seconds, but no longer than
10 seconds, then press and hold PANIC button.

7. When a single chime is heard, release both buttons. The chime indicates the system
is in program mode.

8. Press and release both the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons, simultaneoulsly on the remote
to be programmed.


9. A single chime will be heard. The chime indicates the the remote was recognized.


10. Within 4 seconds of hearing the chime, press and release any button on the remote
being programmed.

11. A single chime will be heard The chime indicates the remote has been programmed.

12. Repeat steps 8 to 11 for a total of 4 remotes.

13. Turn the ignition to the OFF position or wait 60 seconds to exit program mode.

How to reprogram 2010 Dodge Charger key fob when battery replace


The fob should not need reprogramming. Changing the battery in it will not affect how the fob works. Even changing the vehicle battery won't have any effect on it. Fobs are Not normally reprogrammable, they usually need replacing instead.

May be keyfob needs reprogramming.

Keyfob remote reprogramming is not very difficult but on some cases it can be done by dealer service tools.

If the remote s faulty then key fob will not get programmed.

Insert the key in ignition. Turn the key to on position, and cycle the key three times off-on-off-on-off-on. Then with the key fob remote select your remote and then try to operate the vehicle with remote.

These are just the basic procedure, but sometimes it will not help.

On that case dealer is the only option.

When I put my key in the ignition of my 2008 dodge grand caravan, it reads badkey & wont start. what is the problem?


Newer Dodge Vehicles do not have an ignition for a "metal" key. They use the Electronic Key called a FOB with a built in or integrated metal key that is only used to unlock the door. The FOB inserts into a WIN module (Wireless Ignition Module) instead of the normal igition. Reprogramming the vehicle usually does the trick however there has been significant problems with the WIN module and the dealer may have to replace it. The 2010's have a recall on some models. The manual states the keys cannot be reprogrammed. The first and easiest solution might be to try replacing the battery in the FOB (aka key),

Are you sure the connection to the battery inside the FOB is good? The one I have, it is possible to push the battery too far down and it does not quite connect.
A dealer can also reprogram it or sell you a new one based on your vehicle is number.

Reprogram 2005 Dodge Durango key fob


Go to the dealer. It is the only way, they have to use a computer. Changing the battery doesn't make it lose it's program though. You most likely broke the battery hold down. This is the most common thing I see at my shop. If the key still starts the vehicle, you now have a bad key fob. If not, you may be able to get it reprogrammed.
