I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.Remove key from ignition.
Close all doors.
Open driver side door and leave open.
Perform the following steps within 24 seconds.
a. Insert key in ignition.
b. Turn key to ON and OFF.
c. Repeat step b two more times.
d. Remove key.
e. Push driver door frame button three times (black rubber button located on
driver door frame that tell the vehicle whether or not door is closed.)
5. Buzz sound, chime or doors will lock and unlock should be heard at this point
signaling that the vehicle is now in programming mode. If not, wait 40 seconds
and return to step 4.
6. All transmitters need to be programmed at this time, including the old ones.
Push any button on the transmitter two times. A buzz sound, chime or doors
locking and unlocking should be heard at this point signaling that the vehicle
has accepted the new transmitter code. If there is only one transmitter, repeat
this step two more times using the only transmitter. If there are two transmitters,
repeat this step two more times using the second transmitter.
7. Push driver door frame button one time. Two buzz sounds, chimes or doors
locking and unlocking 2 times should be heard at this point signaling successful
programming.
