Hello and Welcome to Justanswer,

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to try and assist your with your question.

Unfortunately no the problem you are describing is in most cases caused by a failed key transmitter not being able to read the key or keys and in most cases if this is the case, the dealer scan tool is the only scan tool that can diagnose this and reprogram the system to read the new transmitter if this is the cases. It can not be reset .
