WHY WONT MY NEW KEYLESS FOB REMOTE PROGRAM IN?

2001 Chevrolet Impala • 165,000 miles

I just bought a keyless remote as my car did not come with one so I finally decided to purchase one. I followed the programing instructions, but nothing happens when I'm supposed to hear a chime and it just exits. How can I get it to program?

It probably will be need to beprogrammed to the computer at the dealer. Unless this is an aftermarket unit if it is they should reprogram it for you or should have.

Which programming procedure did you use? The one in the owner manual or this one (last time I reprogrammed a remote, the procedure in the manual didn't work but the one below did): 1. Turn the ignition to ACC or ON and the radio to off. Do not crank the engine.

2. Press and hold the DISP button on the radio for at least five seconds until settings is displayed.

3. Press the SEEK up or down arrows until FOB PROG appears on the display.

4. Press the PREV or NEXT button to enter the submenu. The current selection will have an asterisk next to it. BEGIN will be displayed.

5. Press the DISP button to start programming. When the message PUSH FOB flashes, press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the first transmitter at the same time for 15 seconds. A chime will be heard to verify the transmitter is learned.

To Exit: 1. Scroll until EXIT appears on the display.
2. Press the DISP button to exit programming. A chime will he heard to verify the exit.

I used that one, but it never chimed. I tried it several times and even replaced the battery.
