    Replace key for with newer one.

    I have an 06 dts and I'm curious if I can replace the remote entry/starter remote with a newer looking on. The one I have now is the roundish older looking one and I would like to replace it with the newer square ones with the rectangle buttons that are stacked on top of each other. Is there a way to program one of those to my 06?

    Yep... just make sure the new fob has the same number of buttons as your old one.

    Really?! That's awesome. Can you tell me where to find instructions on programming?

    Mine is in the DIC. It also tells about it in my manual.

    A locksmith could help you. Also the dealer you buy the remote should be able to instruct you.

    Good luck

    Your owners manual gives instructions for programming it.
    It's pretty simple.

    Yep, you have to do all the fobs at the same time. One after the other.
