Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier

2 Answers

Just got a used 2004 Cavalier. Only has one ignition key. Went to get a key made but doesnt start the car. Works in the door. Is the key for this car a transponder key? If yes, is it possible to buy a blank off ebay and use a procedure of some sort to program the car to accept the new key?

It may depend on where your key is made. I made two spare keys at Meijer and both work fine.

Some of the new GM keys contain a chip. There is a procedure to program them but should be done at a dealer or curtified shop.

1-insert and remove key from ignition two times

2-close and open driver door two times

3-insert and remove key once from ign.

4-close and open drvr door twice

5-insert key into ign.,then close driver door

6-turn key to on (not start) then off, twice this is rewrite mode,have all remotes to reprogram it will clear any lost remotes.

7-remove key from ignition,the door locks should cycle twice.if not start over.it may take a few tries.

8-press lock/unlock together and hold for a second

9-release,and press lock on remote,the door locks will cycle confirming program.continue to do other remotes you have,steps 8 and 9.if only one in possession,you are done. To end mode open door or insert key into ignition.

You'll need to follow the steps with no more than a 1-2 second delay between each step.. hope it works

Solution for "Need help programing keyless entry remotes for 96 cavalier


The following worked for me: get in the car and shut the door, then put the key in the ignition and turn it till all the dashboard lights come on, but don't turn it any further and start the car, then press the "Lock" button on the remote, if the doors then lock then it has reprogrammed.

Hope this works for you.

My Spare Key Won't Start My Car


ok well here's the thing. This key has not been used before. The keys are cut to the specs of the ignition so they may be undercut so to speak. I know on my car i can turn it upside down it will work. But on the other hand it could just possibly be a back up for when you lock your keys in your car (not likely but it's still possible). You can keep putting your key in and out a bunch of times and **** the steering wheel back and forth as you turn the key to get it used to the ignition switch. See if that works and if not i will see what i can come up with in the meantime for this exact car.

Intermitant, engine winds over but doesnt start i can take key in and out a few times and will then start, warning light with key flashes when problem accurs


I have had this problem> I solved it by removing the key from the ignition and using the remote to to lock and then open the car. Put the key back in and start the engine. Works every time for me.
