I laid my spare key fob on top of my car(Dumb Move) while rummaging through my glove box. later i took off driving with my normal key in my pocket. Good by "Key Fob" on the roof. I got a new fob from the attached website and i programed the fobs myself using the instructions in the manual. I think they made it a long enduring process so you don't have car thieves just coming up and re-programming fobs to steal cars. One thing to note is , once you start the process "Don't open the door" . I did and had to start all over . it took me twice as long then normal. I asked the "Parts department" to cut the key portion of the fob when i was in for the infotainment update. They did it for No charge (from my Vin #) since i was a customer.

I wonder if 3rd party knockoff fobs will work for the Bolt. They tend to be a lot cheaper.

Do you have to have a key to program the new key following the instructions? Both keys are lost. Chevy says they need a key to program the new one? At Chevy dealership why do you have to wait an hour and pay $500 for a new key to be programmed if you can buy for $85 and program yourself? Not good customer service!
