Hi. Do you have another key to try?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No, just one key.
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 10 months ago.

Unfortunetely when the theft light is blinking the only thing that can be done is to have the keys reprogrammed to the truck. The keys can go bad sometimes.

How do I program the key
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 10 months ago.

For that a scan tool that can program keys needs to be used. You have to either bring it to a dealer, or call a locksmith. They have the software to program keys
