Programming a micro chip key for a 2007 malibu

Just bought a 2007 Chevy Malibu that only came with one key. It seems like a smart idea to have a spare but I don't want to pay dealer prices. I've heard that it is possible to program a key but can't find many details on how this is done. The best I can find is = START THE CAR WITH THE ORIGINAL KEY, TURN THE ENGINE OFF, QUICKLY START THE CAR WITH THE UNPROGRAMMED KEY AND THIS WILL PROGRAM THE KEY. Does that sound right? Any information and help you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks.

Key FOB programming is definately not a dealer only job, as much as they'd like you to think it is!:disappoin Try this procedure. It's a pretty standard procedure across the GM line: (write-up compliments of nat3ten from trailblazer forum)


"1 SIT IN VEHICLE AND CLOSE DOOR

2 HOLD FINGER DOWN ON UNLOCK POWER DOOR LOCK SWITCH ON DRIVERS DOOR.

3 put key in ignition, TURN IGNITION ON / OFF , ON / OFF.LEAVE KEY IN IGNITION.(DO NOT START VEHICLE, ON POSITION IS THE POSITION BEFORE START)

4 RELEASE FINGER FROM POWER DOOR LOCK.POWER DOOR LOCKS WILL CYCLE.(JUMP UP AND DOWN)

5 PRESS AND HOLD BOTH THE LOCK AND UNLOCK BUTTONS ON NEW REMOTE UNTILL YOU HEAR POWER DOOR LOCKS CYCLE.(JUMP UP AND DOWN) YOU MAY HAVE TO HOLD BOTH BUTTONS DOWN FOR 5- 20 SECONDS.

6 TAKE 2ND NEW , OR OLD REMOTE AND HOLD BOTH UNLOCK AND LOCK BUTTONS DOWN UNTILL LOCKS CYCLE.(MAY TAKE 5- 20 SECONDS)


7 TURN KEY ON, THEN OFF.
YOU ARE DONE, EXIT VEHICLE AND TRY YOUR REMOTE."

SOURCE: programing keyless entry

If you have an owners manual the programming instructions are in there. If no manual here they are:

1. Turn the ignition off.
2. Ground the receiver program terminal. Jump the two terminals located in the programing ground connector. (What this means in simple terms is locate the wires that run on the right side of the trunk. There is two black wires that has a plug on the end with two prongs. It is in between the antenna and tail lights.)
3. Within 2 seconds of connecting the prongs the door locks will lock. The unlock and the rear compartment lid release will produce a cycle, causing the horn to chirp. This indicates that the module is ready for reprogramming.
4. Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons at the same time until the doors lock and unlock. The rear compartment lid will release and the horn sounds to indicate that the transmitter has successfully been reprogrammed. (Hold buttons down for approximately 12 seconds)
5. Repeat the previous step for the remaining transmitters.
6. Remove the jumper at the program connector.
7. Verify the proper operation of each transmitter

SOURCE: 2004 chevy malibu classic spark plug replacement

the only thing i will recomend is to make sure the engine is complety cold before doing it, because more of this cars come with aluminum heads and if not cold before doing it might damage spark plug thread, i can't remebre very well the easiest way to replace them, but if it is a v-6 motor will be easier by removing the two top engine mounts on top of radiator and the gently lift transmission by rear side of car and this will give you more clearance on the rear plugs, and if plug wires are hard to remove tunr it rt to left and then puul them of, if they brake don;t try to fix them just replace it.

SOURCE: How do you program a key fob for a 97 chevy

There are two wires in the trunk that you have to fumble around with. When you open the trunk it is on the right hand side...They may be taped up, play around with the two wires until you here the locks of the doors lock and then unlock and the trunk latch will open. Make sure the windows are open when you try this so you wont get locked out by chance. Once this happens, hold the "Lock" and "Unlock" buttons simultaneously for 15 secs until the locks repeat the locking and unlocking pattern they performed earlier. Once this happens, you are programmed and ready to go.

Reprogramming a spare with only 1 original - 2004 Chevy Malibu


the ignition keys are not coded. no "chip" in them you should be able to just have a spare key cut and it will work fine. These use an electronic device in key cylinder that senses the proper rotation of cylinder and tumblers. so if someone tries to pry on with a screwdriver it will disable starter. when this is replaced it has to be reprogrammed
