1. Verify that the new key has “PK3” or “+” stamped on it.

2. Insert the original, already programmed key in the ignition 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 off and remove the key.

4. Insert the key to be programmed and turn it to on within 10 seconds of removing the original key.

5. 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.

6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 if additional keys are to be programmed.

Program the old one and then the new one while it's still in learn mode.

Hello nasty1717,

I am sorry to see you are experiencing difficulties with your key and remotes. Feel free to send me a PM if you would like me to reach out to your dealership on your behalf to provide additional support. Have a great evening and I will be looking for your message.

All the best,
