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

If you’ve just bought a new Dodge, you can program your Dodge key fob in five simple steps. Or, if you already own a Dodge vehicle but your key fob quit working and you need to reprogram it, make sure you look at our DIY guide for that process in the next section, as the steps are a little different for reprogramming an existing key fob.

  1. Step inside your Dodge vehicle’s driver’s side and lock the door using your key fob within ten seconds of entering the car.
  2. Insert the key into your vehicle’s ignition and turn it to the “RUN” position while simultaneously holding the “UNLOCK” button on your driver’s door.
  3. Hold both the “UNLOCK” button and the “PANIC” button simultaneously, then release them at the same time.
  4. Next, press the “UNLOCK” and “LOCK” buttons simultaneously and release them at the same time.
  5. Press the “UNLOCK” button one more time.

Your vehicle should now recognize your key fob. Step outside the car and lock and unlock your vehicle to ensure it works. If it does not recognize your key fob, try to replace the battery. If you still have issues, contact the Landers Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM service department.

Dodge Key Fob Reprogramming: Step-by-Step Guide

If you are on your way to commute from Texarkana to Monroe and find your key fob malfunctioning, follow the steps ahead to reprogram your key fob:

  1. Enter your vehicle and press and release the lock button on your remote five times within ten seconds upon entering the car.
  2. Insert your key into the ignition and turn it to the “RUN” position.
  3. For four seconds, press and hold the “UNLOCK” and “PANIC” buttons simultaneously. Then, release at the same time.
  4. Press and release both the “LOCK” and “UNLOCK” buttons, then press the “UNLOCK” button until your Dodge responds with a lock cycle.
