there is no extra charge for the procedure, its eiher goig to be he programming, or a bad key, and the keys very seldom go bad, but the procedure has to be done first to see if ita bad key or just lost programming,Tim

Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 9 months ago.

below is the procedure to follow, Tim

  1. With a passkey III key (Black), turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Observe the Security telltale, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn off.
  3. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes.

    Important: The vehicle learns the key transponder information and/or passwords on the ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.

  5. With a master passkey III key, start the vehicle. The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information and the PCM has now learned the fuel continue password.
