Welcome to JA, My name is XXXXX XXXXX online automotive tech. Thank you for you for waiting.

Do you have an M-MDS machine with access?

You are going to need to reprogram system and keys. The dealer with access can do this for you.



1. Connect the M-MDS to the DLC-2

2. Select “BODY SECURITY PATS (immobilizer) function” from the M-MDS screen


3. Select the items to be performed from the following:

- Additional card key programming

- Card key ID number clearing

- Steering lock unit programming

- Ignition key additional programming (with immobilizer system)

- Ignition key D number clearing (with immobilizer system)

- Customer spare key programming enable (with immobilizer system)

- Customer spare key programming disable (with immobilizer system)

4. The security access begins, and the M-MDS displays the “OUT-CODE”.

NOTE: When “OUT-CODE” is first displayed, tuning the ignition switch from the

LOCK to the ON position 5 times will change the “OUT-CODE”.

5. Input “N-CODE” corresponding to “OUT-CODE” displayed on the M-MDS screen.

6. If the security access is successful, selected item can be performed.

Sorry, computer went out on me. I am checking in with you to let you know sometime in the evening tomorrow. Had to back up new computer. 10 drives which include all the software from a to z - 3000 gigs worth, so it is almost done.
