Need to go to the dealer for a new FOB to be activated. You can only reactivate original Key FOBS that have received new batteries.

How do I program fob for mabilu maxx 2005

You have to go to a Chevy dealer. They have a hand-held computer they plug into your car to get it into programming mode. Probably cost $50-$60. Call them for an estimate.

There is no feature to remotely find the key fob from the car like a tv discovering a smart remote. If you have misplaced the fob with no real ability to recover it, you will have to purchase a new unit at a GM dealer. Most dealers can program the fob to your car as well. Hopefully this helps.

My remote for my 2005 chevy equinox will not work and my ignition key wont open the door. what do i do?

your key, even if there was only one issued with the car when it was new, should unlock the door. this issue may be due to a dead battery and the car is unable to read the transponder code that is sent from the chip in the key.if none of the fob buttons work and the key wont open the door you may have to have a roadside service tech. open the door manually with a wedge kit. this will at least get you in and then you can pop the hood to have the battery checked just be sure the tech who comes can do both unlock the car and check the battery to be sure your not charged twice for the same problem just explain the situation when you call for help hope this helps that's all i can think of on a car this new.

Need to obtain key code to obtain extra key

No not if you have the new style key. They are a dealer only due to have a computer chip inside the key. Walmart and other places can't make a key for you due to factory made only. The dealer has to order you the keys.
