Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 9 months ago.

I attached a reset procedure for you to do this your self.

If this does not work though, that means that something else is worng and it needs to be diagnosed with a scan tool.

Tanks, Ron

I need to know how to retrieve passcode to enter through keyless entry while locked out
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 9 months ago.

That can't be retrieved with attaching a scan tool to the computer system to confirm the VIN.

Your other choice would be a locksmith, but they will charge you.

The other choice is to call the local police, they will use their special tools to unlock your car for you but you have to prove to them that it is yours.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
