How to program a Key Fob?

Hello,

I just found a key fob from one of my other trucks that I have sold. How would I go about reprogramming it to work with my new truck?

Thanks

Look in the owners manual. In my OL's 08 hemi, it gives instructions on how to do it. Do you have the fob on the key, or is it a separate piece? She has the fob and key that is all one piece...

The following procedure can be used as long as one
programmed transmitter is available:
NOTE: When entering program mode using that
programmed fob, ALL currently programmed fobs
will be erased and they will have to be reprogrammed
for the vehicle. If program mode is
entered and no action is performed, the previously
programmed fobs will continue to function.
(1) Enter the vehicle and close all doors.
(2) Fasten the seat belt (this will cancel the seat
belt chime). Turn the ignition to the RUN position.
(3) Press and hold the UNLOCK button on a programmed
transmitter for 4 to 10 seconds. Within the
4 to 10 seconds with the UNLOCK button still
depressed, press the PANIC button for one second.
When a single chime is heard, release both buttons.
The chime indicates the system is in program
mode.
(4) Press and release both the LOCK and
UNLOCK buttons simultaneously on a fob to be programmed.
A single chime will be heard, this indicates
the fob has been recognized.
(5) Press and release any button on the same fob.
A single chime will be heard, this indicates the fob
has been programmed.
(6) Repeat steps 4 and 5 for up to a total of 4 fobs.
(7) Turn the ignition OFF.
(8) Turn the ignition ON or wait 60 seconds.
The vehicle will remain in program mode for up to
60 seconds from when the original chime (step 3) was
heard. After 60 seconds, all programmed transmitters
will continue to function

Cool Deal, Thank you very much. I am going to wait until tomorrow just in case something doesn't work right.

when doing this, do you have to reprogram the fob you used to start the programming process?

finally did this, worked like a charm. I also bought a "chipped" key from ebay and programmed that. I now have 3 full sets.
