yea I put it in the arm rest it said "known FOB" I hope i dont need a dealer...I came across this which I guess someone else tried what do you guys think about it??
1. Put key into the ignition and turn it to the ON (RUN) position. A "Security" indicator light on the dashboard will stay on for 10 minutes.
2. Within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF" then return to the ON (RUN) position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes. (DO NOT REMOVE THE KEY)
3. Again, within 1 minute after the indicator light goes off, turn the ignition to "OFF", then return to the ON (RUN) position. The indicator light again will stay on for 10 minutes. (DO NOT REMOVE THE KEY)
4. When the light goes off for the third time, the new key is programmed into the computer and will start the car. Remove the key and then re-insert it into the ignition lock and start the car.
then the tech said this....
From what you have described here this does sound like the vehicle went into theft protect mode and the key needs relearned.This doesn't have to be done by a dealer and it sounds like you have the correct procedure however on step 3 after the third time doing this make sure you turn your key off again before trying to start the vehicle.
If you have a start button instead of the key hole then you would have the key on you and push the start button with your foot off the brake to turn on the ignition then go through the steps.
Keep in mind you have to have a good charge in the battery when doing this,if voltage goes low it will reset the learn procedure.You can do this with a battery charger connected to the vehicle if needed.Or you can replace the battery and do this procedure.
what you think??
