  • With a master PASS-Key III key, rotate the ignition to the CRANK position and let go leave the key in the on position.
  • Observe the SECURITY telltale. After approximately 10 minutes, the telltale will turn OFF.
  • Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds do not remove the key.
  • Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes.

    Important: The vehicle learns the key transponder information and/or passwords on the ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.

  • With a master PASS-Key III key, start the vehicle. The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information and the PCM has now learned the fuel continue password.
