I purchased a 2008 Saturn Aura and I was only given one

Customer Question

I purchased a 2008 Saturn Aura and I was only given one ignition key. The Tire Service light is on and the dealership told me that they need the key fob in order to get the light to go off.
My question: if the Service Tire light is on would I be able to buy a new key fob (since one did not come with the car) and have it programmed to the vehicle and then use it to get the Service Tire light to go off? Or am I just in a catch 22 without the original Fob?

The tpms and keyless are the same module. This could be a problem with the tpms module. You could try getting a new fob and programming it, you should not need the original as that can be erased from the memory with the scan tool.
