To program a key on your vehicle you'll need to place the key in the cup holder then press and old the push start button until the ignition is on, wait 12 minutes until the security light turns off, push the start button to turn the ignition off, wait 5 seconds and repeat this all over again for 36 minutes, after the third time is complete turn ignition off and then start it up. No need to mess around in the trunk. Please give a positive rating. Thanks
