    Thank you - Fiero. To captian obvious above I did read my owners manual and had no luck. I will try this I see no reason the two diffrent year fobs should not work in an 07 or 08 I just could not get mine to display OFF/ AC ...... I will be sure to try this.

    I tried again today to add a fob per the vender manual with no luck. I must have to clear all fobs and reprogram with option 3 in the above post. I will try the bat first tho.

    Put the battery in question into your known working fob and see if it works.
