Did you do the 10 minute relearn after you programed the new key? How did you program the new key?

Expert:  kalamykid replied 1 month ago.

Did you use your original key first to program the new key, then do the relearn?

Can you send me a pic of the old key please?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Did u get the picture
Expert:  kalamykid replied 1 month ago.

Yes I got the pic. What you will have to do is go to your local hardware store and have another key made. But not just any key. You will need a key that is all metal. Then you will need to tape the top black part of your old key to the new one. The use this taped key to turn the ignition switch to run. Do not try to start the engine. Leave the switch in run for the count of 10. then turn the ignition switch off, as fast as you can take the key out of the switch and then insert the key that you got from the dealer and turn the switch back to run, again do not try to start the engine. again count to 10, and then turn the ignition switch back off. The bcm should now recognize the new key. Then turn the switch back to run, then try to start the engine. If the engine does not start, do the 10 minute relearn again.
