Programming with Recognized Transmitters (Keyless Access Vehicles Only)

If you have a 2020 Silverado with keyless access, you can easily program a new key fob using recognized transmitters. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Remove the key from a recognized transmitter.
  2. Place the recognized transmitters in the cupholder or passenger seat.
  3. Insert the vehicle key into the key lock cylinder on the driver door handle. Then turn the key counterclockwise, to the unlock position, five times within 10 seconds. The Driver Information Center (DIC) displays READY FOR REMOTE#2, 3, 4, ETC.
  4. Place the new transmitter in the transmitter pocket/insert.
  5. Press the ENGINE START/STOP button. When the transmitter is learned, the DIC display will show that it is ready to program the next transmitter.
  6. Remove the transmitter from the transmitter pocket and press unlock or lock on the transmitter. To program additional transmitters, repeat Steps 4–6. When all additional transmitters are programmed, press and hold the ENGINE START/STOP button for approximately 12 seconds to exit programming mode.
  7. Return the key back into the transmitter.

Programming without a Recognized Transmitter (Keyless Access Vehicles Only)

If you don't have a recognized transmitter for your 2020 Silverado with keyless access, you can still program a new key fob. Here's how:

  1. Remove the vehicle key from the transmitter.
  2. Insert the vehicle key into the key lock cylinder on the driver door handle; then turn the key counterclockwise, to the unlock position five times within 10 seconds. The Driver Information Center (DIC) displays REMOTE LEARN PENDING, PLEASE WAIT.

  4. Repeat Step 3 two additional times. After the third time, all previously known transmitters will no longer work with the vehicle. Remaining transmitters can be relearned during the next steps. The DIC display should now show READY FOR REMOTE # 1.
  5. Place the new transmitter in the transmitter pocket/insert.
  6. Press the ENGINE START/STOP button. When the transmitter is learned, the DIC display will show that it is ready to program the next transmitter.
  7. Remove the transmitter from the transmitter pocket/insert and press unlock or lock on the transmitter. To program additional transmitters, repeat Steps 5–7. When all additional transmitters are programmed, press and hold the ENGINE START/STOP button for approximately 12 seconds to exit programming mode.

Professional Programming Required for Separate Key and Remote

If you have a separate key and remote for your 2020 Silverado, you will need to seek the assistance of a qualified professional to program them.

It is important to note that attempting to program the key fob yourself without the proper knowledge and tools can lead to errors and may render the key fob unusable. It is always recommended to consult a professional for key fob programming to ensure proper functionality.

By following the steps outlined above, you can easily program a new key fob for your 2020 Silverado with keyless access. However, if you have a separate key and remote, it is best to seek professional assistance to ensure proper programming and functionality.
