C8 Corvette Key Fob Programming

2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024

Easily program your C8 Corvette’s key fob with our simple, step-by-step guide. Our guide is designed to be easy to understand and follow, providing a hassle-free experience. You can program additional key fobs to your C8 Corvette when you have the original two key fobs. However, only a dealer can handle its programming if you need to replace Key Fob #1 or #2.

What You Need

Before starting, ensure you have:

  • Your C8 Corvette
  • Key Fob #1 & Key Fob #2
  • Additional Key Fob (to be programmed)

Steps to Program

1. Start by sitting in the driver’s seat and ensure all doors, windows, and the trunk are closed. Place both Key Fob #1 and #2 on the passenger seat.

2. Using the Driver Information Center (DIC), navigate to the “REMOTE KEY LEARN” option. Once selected, the DIC will show a message saying, “READY for REMOTE #N,” where N represents the following key fob number to be programmed.

3. Place the new key fob into the Backup Transmitter/Key Fob Pocket near the cupholder (see Figure 1) with the mechanical key end facing up.

4. Press the ENGINE START/STOP button.

5. When the smart key is learned, the Driver Information Center (DIC) will display “READY for REMOTE #N,” where N represents the following key fob number to be programmed.

6. To complete programming, remove the key fob from the Backup Transmitter/Key Fob Pocket and press either the LOCK or UNLOCK button. To program additional key fobs, follow steps 3 to 6 again.

7. After programming all the extra key fobs, hold the ENGINE START/STOP button for 12 seconds to exit the programming mode.
