Chevrolet Captiva Sport 2011-2013 Key Programming Procedure
The following are the key programming procedures for the 2011 and 2013 Chevrolet Captiva Sport.
ADD DUPLICATE KEY (Requires at least one working key):
1. Verify that the new key has “PK3” or “+” stamped on it.
2. Insert the original, already programmed key into the ignition lock cylinder and start the engine. If the engine will not start, see your dealer for service.
3. After the engine has started, turn the key to LOCK/OFF and remove the key.
4. Insert the key to be programmed and turn it to ON/RUN within 10 seconds of removing the previous key. The security light will turn off once the key has been programmed. It may not be apparent that the security light went on due to how quickly the key is programmed. (If your vehicle does not have a security light (04-07 Grand Prix, Bonneville, Impala), wait 10 minutes 45 seconds to make sure the key has been programmed).
5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 if additional keys are to be programmed.
About Chevrolet Captiva Sport
The Holden Family II normally aspirated four-cylinder petrol or the Alloytec Holden V6 manufactured in Australia, and later a 2.0-L turbodiesel provided by VM Motori in South Korea, made the Captiva a front-wheel or all-wheel drive SUV.
The Captiva was introduced in 2006, and it was designated C100 by Daewoo and CG by Holden. The Captiva’s design was influenced by the Chevrolet S3X concept car from 2004. The S3X idea is based on the GM Theta platform and was created by GM Daewoo’s design facility in Bupyeong-gu, Incheon. It made its debut at the 2004 Paris Motor Show. Another Daewoo concept car, the Chevrolet T2X, made its debut at the 2005 Seoul Motor Show with a design based on the S3X but with a shorter platform. The T2X is classified as a sport utility coupe due to its rear-hinged doors, lack of traditional B-pillars, and shorter wheelbase, all of which were originally seen on the “Daewoo Oto” (later renamed “Daewoo Scope”) concept at the 2002 Seoul Motor Show. The film was supposed to be released in late 2006, but no additional information has been released as of 2009.
Both five- and seven-seat arrangements are available for the Captiva, the production version of the S3X. Antilock brakes, electronic stability control (ESC), front seatbelt pretensioners and force limiters, and driver and front-passenger airbags are all standard safety equipment. In some areas, side-curtain airbags are standard on higher-level premium models. The Captiva received a four-out-of-five-star crash rating in Euro NCAP tests. The inclusion of high-strength steel in the body shell, which was designed to spread crash forces along various load channels, ensuring the safety of the people within the safety cell, aided the test results. The vehicle’s optional active all-wheel drive system is fully integrated with the vehicle’s ESC and antilock braking systems, resulting in improved vehicle handling and control. When the car detects a loss of traction, it immediately switches to all-wheel drive mode. Only the vehicle’s front wheels are utilised in normal driving scenarios.
In the second quarter of 2011, the Captiva line was updated. The facelifted Captiva had a new front fascia that looked similar to the Chevrolet Aveo’s (T300). LED turn signals on the door-mounted mirrors, new wheels, and altered side air vents were among the other apparent visual modifications. Holden in Australia supplied the new SIDI alloy V6, while VM Motori in South Korea produced the petrol four-cylinder 2.4-L and VM Motori 2.2-L turbodiesel engines.
On November 10, 2015, the new 2016 Chevrolet Captiva was introduced at the Dubai International Motor Show. On December 1, 2015, GM Thailand revealed the facelifted Chevrolet Captiva during the 32nd Thailand International Motor Expo.  In Australia, a facelifted Holden Captiva was also unveiled a day later. The new Captiva includes new LED headlamps, a revamped grille, and a redesigned dashboard, but the body and dashboard panels have remained unchanged. The V6 engine could no longer be found in Australia.
