Question about 2004 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

How do I know if my Chevy Malibu has remote entry capabilities

I recently purchased a 2004 Chevy Malibu from a dealer. He only gave me a door key and when I asked him about remote entry he told me he didn't have one. It seems I have everything on this car and would be surprised if it didn't have remote entry. It also seems that when I read about the 2004 Malibu it always talks about the remote entry. Is there a way I can know for sure and if so, how do I purchase a remote entry device for the car and program it?

The easiest solution is to contact your dealer's parts/service department. They can search for installed option (dealer/factory only) by VIN and tell you if the car came with it when it was new.

From there, they can either order you a remote, or give you the FCC ID, and you can get one at AutoZone.
