Here is the relearn procedure.

With a Master Passkey3 key (Black plastic not the Gray), turn the key on then rotate the ignition to the "ON" position. After approximately 10 minutes, check the SECURITY telltale. The telltale should be OFF. Turn OFF the ignition and wait 5 seconds. Repeat steps two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes.

At the end of the 3rd time, rotate the key off. Wait 5 seconds. Now start and run the engine. (The vehicle learns the key transponder information and/or passwords on the ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.) The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information and the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) has now learned the fuel continue password.

I am glad I can help!
