Keyless Entry Remotes & Fobs for Chrysler Crossfire

Chrysler Crossfire Keyless Remotes and Fobs

Keyless entry remotes allow you to unlock and in some cases, start your Chrysler Crossfire without having to insert a key into the ignition. If you lose your key fob or you did not receive a remote when you bought your car, you can still pair your vehicle to a keyless remote. When looking for a remote, however, you need to make sure that the remote will work with your car, especially if you want functions or features that were not offered with the original remote.

What features do keyless entry remotes have?

Key fobs have a variety of different functions, which include the following:

  • Panic button: This red button on the remote causes the Crossfires lights to blink and the horn to sound. It is used to get attention quickly in emergencies. This button can also be used to locate your Chrysler in crowded parking lots.
  • Keyless ignition system: This feature allows you to start the car without putting your key in the ignition. All you need to do is have the key fob in your pocket or in the car to get the vehicle to start.
  • Smart keys: These keys detect your vehicle and allow you to unlock your Crossfire when you are nearby. When the key leaves the vicinity of the vehicle, the car locks itself.
  • Advanced functions: Depending on the model year of your Crossfire, these remotes may have additional functions that can make your life easy. For example, some key fobs trigger automatic seats to adjust to preset preferences. Some adjust the exterior mirrors.
How do you program keyless entry remotes?

Programming your key fob to pair up with your Crossfire is not difficult. Follow these steps:

  • Getting the GM code: To pair the keyless entry remote to your Crossfire, you will need to know the GM ID of your vehicle. If you are replacing an existing remote, the old remote should have this ID already on it. Otherwise, you can contact a GM dealership to get the code. This code is a serial number that makes the Crossfire compatible with the remote.
  • Programming the remote: To program the keyless entry remote, you will need to know the programming sequence. This sequence often includes the remote and the vehicles ignition. Replacement keyless entry remotes often come directly with instructions on how to pair the replacement remote with your Crossfire.
What are the differences between OEM and aftermarket keyless remotes?

When you want to ditch your key, you will have a few options when looking for a compatible remote:

  • OEM: This is an abbreviation for original equipment manufacturer. These are the independent manufacturers who made the original key fob for your Crossfire. You can often get replacement key fobs and other parts from this manufacturer. Be aware, though, that the packaging and branding may be different from the packaging and branding on the parts that came with your vehicle.
  • Aftermarket: Aftermarket keyless fobs are made by other manufacturers. In some cases, keys and key fobs made by other brands have some features that OEM parts may not have.
