I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

There is another way that you can get the key programmed, Not sure if it is less expensive but it is another option. The option is to call out your local locksmith or you can tow it to them and have them program the key.

If you post the last 9 digits of your VIN, I can get you the pin number to have the locksmith program the key for you...

Keep me posted...

Thank you,
