    I have tried youtube, google, and yahoo to search out how to program some new key fobs for my chevy impala (2012 )
    Have had no luck with what I have already tried so far.

    Is this something I can do ?
    Have beeb told it requires something hooked up to my car to program the fobs/car.

    Thanks, Jim Breslin

    Try this...

    2000-PRESENT Impala Keyless Entry Re-Programs - Chevrolet Forum - Chevy Enthusiasts Forums

    Or


    For year models 2006 and up


    1. Insert the key into the ignition.

    2. Turn the key to the ON position. (do not start the engine)

    3. Press the Vehicle Information button until "PRESS TO RELEARN REMOTE KEY" is displayed on the screen.

    4. Press the Reset button until "REMOTE KEY LEARNING ACTIVE" is displayed on the screen.

    5. Press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the fob to be programmed, a chime should sound to indicate successful programming. (may take up to 15 secs)

    6. Turn the ignition OFF to exit program mode.

    If you go to the link above that section, there are 2 or 3 other ways to do it.

    There's a whole Impala board that's got at least 3 or 4 threads on this.

    Had to do this with my old Impala years ago.

    There are some that do require the tech at the shop with the computer to do it I think, but most fobs can be "learned" without.

    If all else fails, call the dealership.

    Who will sell you a new FOB for $75. Get a new one on Ebay for $7 and do it yourself. Looks easy enough if you search the right make & model, read all the directions, and find the right button.

    It should. My Impala is a 2007 and it's in the second from top button, in the 2 red circles. If you have not found it, post a pic of your buttons where you go thru Odometer, Gas mileage, Tire pressure, Oil change, etc. Well, your instructions are surely in your manual, and I guess we can find that online if needed - but see if this works...??
