Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

My wife lost her keys. I had to by another key and program it to the car. Now, she has found her keys and the remote does not work. Does it have to be reprogramed or do I have to get another one? If the old one has to be reprogramed, how do I do it?

The old remote can be programmed again but you need to take the remotes to be programmed together. They must be programmed at the same time and I believe you can program up to 4 remotes per vehicle. I think the venture requires a scan tool for reprogramming. Try this first- 1. Sit in the drivers seat and put the key in the ignition in the off position. 2. With your left hand hold down the unlock button on the door panel and turn the key to the on (not the run position) then off, then on and off. 3. If the horn honks, take one remote and hold down the lock and unlock buttons until the doors lock and unlock, then do the same for the second remote. 4. Now, turn the key to the on position, then off position and the horn should sound again. Try unlocking/locking the car with each remote. **step 2 may require the key to be turned on then off 3 times instead of 2 before the horn honks. This my not work but if it fails it will not change any of the current settings but you will need to have the dealer program the remotes together.

DIY Replacement Ignition KeySubject: DIY Replacement Ignition Key
Title: What to do if you need a replacement ignition key

Overview:

There are times where you may need a replacement key. This can be the cause of a lost key, a key going bad, upgrading from the non all-in-one key to the all-in-one key.

Please keep in mind that if all keys are lost, there is NO WAY to program a new key to you car and a replacement TWICE module will have to be found with a key, either new (costly) or used and be married to the car via the dealer.

Symptoms:

Need a key, key is giving intermittent "bad key" messages and will not start the car, etc.

Experience Level:

Easy

Tools Needed:

Probably none, or a small tool to take the door off of a key via the hole in the side for the all-in-one key.

Time Needed:

Not much.

Parts Needed:

Key Blank from Dealer about $40 This is cut to your car.
Key Top from Dealer about $40 This is the "key guts"
all-in-one guts from Dealer about $90
all-in-one guts from ebay about $30-$60
key door from dealer for all-in-one key about $15

Procedure:

There are a few cases that can be covered

Case 1: Non All-in-one key replaced by non All-In-One key.

Subcase A: Have a non all-in-one key that is going bad

Solution: The dealer will have a replacement top for the key. Get the top, replace the top of the key and have it reprogrammed for the car. Total cost about $40 + $30.

Subcase B: Replace with all-in-one key because they are neato and / or the other key is lost.

Solution: Order the "Key Blank" from dealer and obtain the guts for the all in one key from ebay or the dealer. Have keys programmed by dealer. Total cost about $35 + $30 + guts cost.

Case 2: All-in-one key replaced by All-In-One key.
Subcase A: Have key but is not working.

Solution: Get guts and have it programmed. Cost about $30 + guts cost.

Subcase B: Lost key, need a new key

Solution: Get Key Blank and guts and have it programmed. Cost about
$35 + $30 + guts cost.

Outcome:

Very nice. Replacing the non all-in-one with the all-in-one dramatically increased the range of the remote. over the banana style remote.

Notes:

- Replace the battery in the guts if you get them off of ebay.
- You have to have all keys and remotes to dealer for programming.
- The guts for the non all-in-one key do not have the remote guts
- The guts for the all-in-one key have the security and remote in one
- The key shaft from the ebay all-in-one key can be discarded

How do I re-program my Remote Control with automatic starter on my 2009 Town and Country Van


My experience with frequently-used vehicle remotes (any make) is this:
1. When relatively new or in good condition, if remote stops working, the button battery inside is dead or too low.

2. If battery is new, & remote still doesn't work, a solder joint on the circuit board inside may have come loose or broken.(You can try re-soldering using a low-heat pencil iron & thin RESIN-core solder -- even if you're not great at it, what do you have to lose?)

3. It's rather unusual for even an older, well-used remote to simply lose its programming.If this is the problem, it may be cheaper to buy a new after-market remote (or pair of remotes) that you can program yourself (only works with some brands & years of vehicles, so READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THEIR WEBSITE BEFORE BUYING AN AFTER-MARKET REMOTE), instead of going to the dealer for a normally HIGH-priced programming job.

4. Used OEM remotes that match yours exactly (check the part # of your remote & the used one you're considering) can often be purchased from a local auto wrecker (now called "auto recycler") for cheap ($5 to $10 is common), but will need programming.I always go thru the many they have, looking for one that appears new or like-new.

5. IF YOU MUST GET PROGRAMMING FROM A DEALER, usually it's the SAME PRICE whether you have 1 remote or several remotes/keys programmed at the same time.Since dealer programming is pricey, I always have 3-4 remotes and/or chip-keys programmed at the same time.(My dear wife loses chip-keys & remotes from time-to-time, so I keep a few spares on-hand.I've found inexpensive after-market chip-key blanks at some key cutters and/or auto parts stores, altho they still require programming after the copy is cut from yours.)

CAUTION
:Some OEM anti-theft systems require that ALL remotes & chip-keys be programmed/re-programmed at the same time, whether they're original, used or new.Determine this IN ADVANCE, so you know what you're faced with.The good news is that for those vehicle manufacturers, dealers normally don't charge more to program/re-program multiple remotes and/or chip-keys, if all are being done AT THE SAME TIME.

6. If all else fails & you MUST buy a new OEM remote (which will require programming), try 2 things -- First, see if the dealer will make you a package deal on buying the remote (or 2 remotes, or a remote & a chip-key) AND doing the programming for a lower combined price.Second, it may be cheaper to buy a new OEM remote from a dealer who's had one in stock for a long time & wants to blow it out (or buy from online OEM seller) & then pay the normal programming price.See the CAUTION above.

There are lots of options here, so hopefully something is useful to you.

Once a new key is programmed, will an old key still work in a 2005 Chevy Malibu?


Not sure about Chevy's, but when my husband lost his keys for his Ford, he got a new key programmed, and when he found his "lost" key, it still worked. Try it. Don't think it will hurt it if it doesn't work, but check with a dealer.

I lost my only key for my 2001 cadillac catera, how can I get a new one?


You need to get an aftermarket coded key which can be cut by the serial number of the vehicle.
You need to be a locksmith to get the cut codes or know a locksmith.
Then you have to get the car to the dealer and have the key programmed using the Tech 2 scanner.

You can take the car to the dealer and have them give you a key, programmed and everything but it will cost around $300 for the 1st key.

I bought a 2001 Catera for $1,500.00 because it had no keys.

I used serial number to get key codes and cut the key; doors opened and seller retrieved her personal stuff.
I towed car to dealership and had the key programmed; $130 for 10 minutes work (min 1 hour shop charge).
I then programmed 3 more keys (using a key code reader) instead of letting the dealership rape me.

BTW, they (dealer) also want $350 for a programmed door remote; the stock remote!
Instead, I bought a remote starter unit (Bulldog) with 2 remote fobs for $100 and now my wife can start and find her car easily.
