2004-2006 Pontiac GTO Key Programming

GTO Key The Pontiac GTO key. It’s big, it’s bad, and we love it! Sometimes these bad boys need to be replaced though. The rubber pieces over the “Lock” and “Unlock” buttons on the FOB have a tendency to wear out. And don’t even get me started on how small they made the trunk release button on the key FOB, So anyways, this is the process for getting a new key.

Need a new key for your 2004-2006 Goat? I’ll show you where to get the key and how to program it yourself.

  You can get new GTO keys from here: GTOG8TA.COM

You will need to have your new key cut. I’m assuming you have at least one working key, so find a Auto Dealership parts counter that cuts the GTO style key. Hint: Hyundai’s and Kia’s also use these style keys. I also just recently had a new key cut at a Chevy Dealership. Just make sure where ever you go to have the key cut can laser cut the key. Once your new key is cut, you now need to program it so it works with your vehicle.

    I have 2 dealerships in okla, city make a new key and new ignition with fob and they tried programming and it still does not work. do you know why or have suggestions

    1. Never had that happen. Can throw out a few suggestions. Try disconnecting the battery for 10+ minutes. Then try again. Did you put a new lock cylinder in? If so, make sure the FOB reader is plugged in (The plastic ring that slides over the lock cylinder). Is the new FOB a “OFFICIAL” GTO replacement such as the replacements sold here: https://gtog8ta.com/04-06-gto/04-06-pontiac-gto-oem-key-fob-remote-kit/

      Be sure to follow the instructions exactly. Wait for the car to chirp before turning the key to the off position and back to the on position. Do not remove the key from the ignition during programming.

      Hope this helps.
