Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

It sounds like the key does need reprogrammed to your vehicle.This has to be done by a dealer in most all cases and the dealer will need to double check that the key will work on your model here.If it will they should be able to program it for your vehicle.They will usually charge around an hours labor for this in most cases.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
