Re: Help programming RKE transmitter for 2016

We've had to replace the batteries in our 2016 Spark and 2017 Volt remotes. Never had to in my Ford Taurus (19 years of ownership, but not push to start.) Small price to pay I guess.

Bump, any update on this? The 2016 I just bought come with only one FOB. I'm texting the sales guy right now to see if he can get me another one.

I gave a somewhat technical explanation on page 2 https://www.mychevysparkev.com/forum/vi ... 3&start=10 , as to why the spark owner's manual is likely incorrect about self programming, and someone with a "locksmith grade" programming tool said there was no option to program for the Spark EV, so the general consensus seems to be this can only be done by the dealer. If you find another solution, please fill us in ( I have 2 keys and I'm selling my Spark, so personally the value of the info is minimal, but future owners will appreciate it).

That remote is for Sparks that don't have DC charging.
