Ill have to have it towed but why would it only work the 48 hour time period?
Expert:  cloe0626 replied 11 months ago.

more then likely the shop used the immobilizer code so they could get the car started it is a temporary fix until a new key can be made or the other one can be reprogrammed you can just take the key to the dealer and the can reprogram it for you you do not have to take the car with you

Expert:  cloe0626 replied 11 months ago.

screw that im going to give yuo the relearn procedure to relearn the key see if that works

Expert:  cloe0626 replied 11 months ago.

The timing is critical to this procedure, please read through the entire procedure before attempting.
Procedure:
1. Insert one of the pre-programmed transponder keys and turn the ignition to "on", leave on for at least one second (I wait until the red key symbol in the instrument cluster extiinguishes), remove the key from the ignition.
2. Within 5 seconds insert the second pre-programmed key and turn the ignition to "on" for at least one second but no more than 5 seconds (use the key symbol for this as well) then remove the second key.
3. within 10 seconds insert the new key in the ignition and turn the ignition to "on", if you are successful the red key symbol will illuminate then extinguish after about a second.

If you are not successful the red key symbol will flash repeatedly to indicate that you have inserted an invalid key. Remove the key, wait a minute and try it again, it took me a few times to get it perfect and I had done it before.
