HI,

Ok, did you have the new ignition lock cylinder coded to your original key, or did you install a new cylinder that had its own key?

Hi,

sorry, computer froze up.

Ok, I am 90% sure that the key will need to be programmed to the immobilizer control module, but I am going to open this back up to other experts so if one has differing information, they can provide it for you

Ok. Like most 2000 and up model year vehicles yours does have a "chip" or transponder I. The key that requires programming. Generally it is done by the dealer or a shop with capable programming equipment. Here is the document to give you an idea of what is involved.
