Hello and thanks for choosing just answer. I wish there was an easy way to program keys but there isn't. You will need two keys to be able to program them to the new pcM. A scan tool is going to be needed from either a lock smith or dealership. It is very likely the pcm is going to need to be programmed to the vehicle as well as most data isn't interchangable as it used to be. If you are able to get the pcM to work without reprogramming it you can still run into complications with the programming.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
