Hello

do you have the original key fob that starts and unlocks the doors? IF you don't then sorry to say you won't be able to code up a fob from scratch without a dealer level scan tool - for the obvious security reasons that are involved with this.

if you do have a working fob then try this procedure:

I) Pull out the mechanical key from the ignition switch.
I) Insert the removed key again, and then turn ignition switch ON. Check the security
indicator blinks 5 times.
III) Turn the ignition switch OFF and then remove the mechanical key from the ignition
switch.
IV) Repeat step b) and step c) to register new mechanical keys.
V) Insert a registered (original) mechanical key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition
switch ON, Check the security indicator blinks 5 times.
VI) Turn the ignition switch OFF and then pull out the mechanical key, Check that the
security indicator blinks every 2.6 seconds when the ignition switch is in the OFF position.

Hi
do you still need help?
Bear in mind that the site takes a deposit from you at the beginning and this is held by the site until you rate my answer at which point the cash is split between the site and the expert. I am only paid for my work on this question if you rate my answer, using the star system at the top of the screen. Please do not forget! If you're not pleased, also let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent further replies
Thanks Matt
