Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX thank you for your question.
It sounds like the remote which is the key for the car needs to be programmed. The steps your performing will not program it to the car. That is for old style remotes, that is not for I-keys.
To program that I-Key type of remote you need a scanner to link to the car and pin read the BCM. It will give you a 5 digit number that you then need to decode to a 4 digit number which you go back to the scan tool to enter to program the key.
This is something either a mobile tech, or mobile locksmith may be able to do, other wise it would need to go to the dealer to be programmed.
Did you happen to try installing the remote into the remote slot to the left of the steering wheel and see if it starts with the remote in the slot? Maybe the battery is dead on the remote? That is what that slot is for. If the battery dies on the remote you put the remote in that slot to start the car.
Let me know, Thanks Jay!
yes I used the slot with remote. the battery is good. the remote will unlock and lock the doors, unlock trunk, and alarm works off remote. when insert key in slot, I get nothing.
wont even turn on any power at all.
no its is not locked.
great!! your awesome! it worked and started up after I tapped on it. so can I just replace
that without doing any programming.
