hI, MY NAME IS ***** ***** THE SECURITY LIGHT IS FLASHING, IT MEANS THE COMPUTER DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THE KEY, HAVE YOU TRIED A SPARE KEY YET?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Neither key works.
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 9 months ago.

ok, then the computer lost ots programming for the key, you will need to have the key signal reprogrammed into the computer, the dealer can do this, but we use mobile locksmiths to come to the car and program them, they are alot cheaper and saves a tow bill to the dealer, our local locksmith charges 70 to do this, the dealer gets over 200 dollars and you have to tow it to them, but until the computer recognizes the key, it will not start,Tim
