Chevrolet Silverado: Keys and Locks / Keys (Keyless Access)

Chevrolet Silverado 2019-2024 Owners Manual / Keys, Doors, and Windows / Keys and Locks / Keys (Keyless Access)


Leaving children in a vehicle with an ignition key or Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter is dangerous and children or others could be seriously injured or killed. They could operate the power window or other controls or make the vehicle move. The windows will function with the key in the ignition or with the RKE transmitter in the vehicle, and children or others could be caught in the path of a closing window. Do not leave children in a vehicle with the ignition key or an RKE transmitter.


If the vehicle has the Keyless Access system, the transmitter has a button on the side of the transmitter used to remove the key.

This key is used for the driver door and glove box.

Press the button to remove the key. Never pull the key out without pressing the button.

See your dealer if a replacement key or additional key is needed.

If it becomes difficult to turn a key, inspect the key blade for debris. Periodically clean with a brush or pick.

With an active OnStar or connected service plan, an OnStar Advisor may remotely unlock the vehicle. See OnStar Overview.

If locked out of the vehicle, see Roadside Assistance Program.

If equipped with memory seats, RKE transmitters 1 and 2 are linked to seating positions of memory 1 or 2. See Memory Seats.
