I must have taken too long when changing the battery on my remote key, now key doesn't work.

How do I reprogram key; can't seem to locate previous info on this subject. :cry

I can still start the car, however, I still can't use the remote feature to lock/secure the car. Can only secure/unsecure the car by using key in manually in the door lock.

Even replaced the key fob batteries but still no good. :blink:

o.k., let me try to explain :
1) First- get all of your keys handy because you need to initialize them all at the same time.
2) Get in the car and close all doors
3) Stick one key in the ignition and turn to accesory ( just before start ) and then right back off within 5 seconds, and remove the key
4) Within 30 seconds of turning the ignition switch off, press and hold the unlock button (the "up arrow")
5) while holding the unlock button, press and release (tap) the lock button (round button) 3 times within 10 seconds.
6) release both buttons immediately. The LED will flash (if still working) and the door locks will lock and unlock automatically, signaling a successful initialization.
7) If you have other keys, repeat steps 4 through 6 within 30 seconds.
8) Once you are done, use one of the keys and switch the ignition on and then off (to the full accessory position, don't start the car). this completes the process.

O.K. class, any questions? Did I make myself clear? : )

Muchos gracias for a detailed and very clear explanation!!

Is it true that the onboard computer will actually tell you when the key fob batteries need replacing; heard another urban myth that the car ignition will actually charge the key rob batteries while in the ignition!!
:cheers
