    Re: Key Fob Programming Procedure?

    I also haven't been able to program a pre-owned FOB. I just stumbled on this thread. I'll try the revised procedure above and see if that works for me. One thing I did note though was that the DIC would not come on unless I did the key procedure right after turning the engine off. It also seems to be aware that FOB #2 is already learned and it jumps right to programming FOB #3. I'm still not confident that I can reuse a FOB, but once I am, I think I'll need to do the full reprogramming procedure in order to get FOB #1 and FOB #2 assigned.

    Re: Key Fob Programming Procedure?

    I had this same problem over the weekend and can't figure it out. Now the dealership wants to charge me $100 just to take a look to see what might be wrong with electrical, etc . Both of my fobs worked fine and there are new batteries so I don't understand why it just stopped working and why this happens: the DIC did not display the message "READY TO LEARN ELECTRONIC KEY #2" or any other message (black screen).

    Did anyone figure it out yet?

    I did not receive a matching, second key fob when I took delivery of my XTS Premium late last month. After some delay I finally received a key fob yesterday with a key matched to the driver's door lock cylinder. However, when trying to program/pair/match the new key fob with the one that actually enables the car to go, the following occurred:
    1. the DIC did not display the message "READY TO LEARN ELECTRONIC KEY #2" or any other message (black screen)
    2. the car locked up (no engine start and no moving the transmission out of PARK) for ~20 minutes
    3. the new key fob was not programmed
    Is there a missing step that was not included in the Owner Manual?

    BTW, removing the cap over the Key Cylinder as described on Page 2-11 by using the mechanical key is not easy. I had better luck using a small flat-blade screwdriver.
