Hi, my name is ***** ***** you pulled codes from the computer yet?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I haven't
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.

you can do this your self, if you sit in the drivers seat and close the door, you must then cycle the key on/off, 3 times ending in the on position, the codes will then appear in the odometer window, where the mileage is, can you do this?

Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.

do you have a spare key to try in this?

Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.

are you still here?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have a spare set of keys. Would this cause it to start then idle to a stall but start the next time and keep running.
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.

Yes, these use a radio frequency signal from the keys, if the signal is weak, it will start then die, and set the code P0513, and is vry common, try the spare key and see if it starts and runs, can you do this?>

Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Tried the spare key seems to work but I have gone 3 or 4 days with other key before and it started every time first try. Can I get another new key do I go to the dealership to get another one.
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 1 year ago.

you dont ned the dealer, any locksmith cna come to the vehicle and cut a new key and program it, our local locksmith charges 70 dollars to do thos, the dealer gets over 200, and you have to tow it to them,Tim
