yes
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 4 years ago.
does it start the truck?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
no, the truck wont do anything at all.
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 4 years ago.
then you have lost the programming in the computer, you cant reset this yourself, it requires a special scanner to do this, we use mobile locksmiths, they come to the car and reprogram it, they are cheaper then the dealer, and you save a tow bill to the dealer,Tim

What kind of special scanner and where can i get one
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 4 years ago.
these scanners run about 3 thousand dollars, it would be cheaper to call a locksmith and have them do it, our local locksmith charges 70 dollars to come out and reprogram these,Tim
