Hello everyone! I just got my new chevy impala 2015 V6 3.6 LTZ Full Option. I got 3 brand new keys fob with me and I would like to start the engine from my door house but the key hasn't been programated for it (pressing the specific button) I was told that I have to take the key to my dealer so they can program it for me. But my question is that ..... is there a possible way to do this for my own? would like to save the money and the time really! :)
Any help would be more than appreciated it
Cheers

You have the new model, considered the 9th generation.

I own a 2014 Impala 2LTZ. The vehicle owner’s manual had instructions on how to program an additional transmitter to match the car, if you have one (or two?) already programmed. This is for the intelligent key (not a metal key-start ignition).

Did you read your manual? Do you have the push-button start system, considered an intelligent key fob? Or, do you have the metal key-start system?

I don’t recall if you can program a new transmitter if you have the metal key-start ignition). A GM dealer should be able to program the new fobs in about 1/2 hour or less (it involves erasing the existing fobs from the system, then re programming all available fobs to match the car).

The intelligent key fob should have a double-sided cut emergency metal key in it to enable you to enter the car if the car battery is dead. You must pry off the LF door handle door-lock cover to access it with the emergency key.

I'd check the owner's manual, but as stated by C5, most likely with this model you'll have to go to the dealer. I believe you have a smart key with push-button start?

Hello there!! yes I do have the smart key with the push-button start with me, but the the start engine button its the only one that its not working at the moment, the rest of buttons working just fine. The previous owner told me to go to the dealer to program the key to have access to this feature but as I was asking before maybe I can do it myself? THANKS AGAIN

If I am reading/understanding this right the lock/unlock/trunk release work on all the fobs but the remote start button does not?
If this is the case then yes you will need to see a GM dealer to get the car programmed to enable this feature. This will also require the purchase of a remote start kit that will contain all the necessary components to activate the remote start including the unique activation code that will be needed to program the vehicles controlers to enable the remote start feature.
