Has anyone had to program a new key fob and been successful by following the procedure on Page 2-6 in the Owner Manual?
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:
Is there a missing step that was not included in the Owner Manual?
- the DIC did not display the message "READY TO LEARN ELECTRONIC KEY #2" or any other message (black screen)
- the car locked up (no engine start and no moving the transmission out of PARK) for ~20 minutes
- the new key fob was not programmed
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.
