Hello welcome to just answer I am master tech and will be able to assist you.

since these are a first Gen imobi system they used the Red Learn Key and is the only way to get the Keys read and programmed.

so in order to drive the car and have the key's programmed you will have to have the original Red relearn Key that was given in the owners manual pack.

if this Key is no longer around you will need to replace the imobi system and this is a dealer only part.

their is no work around for this system
