Customer reply replied 11 months ago
send program for new key please note key did work for a while but no more

ok, you need to sit in the driver sea, and close the door, then insert the key and turn it t start and release back to the run position, the security light wil come on , on the dash, leave the key on for about 10 minutes, until the security light goes out, when it goes out, turn the key off for 5 seconds, then start it, this will program the key into the computer,Tim
