    • You have a key fob remote that is compatible with your vehicle.
  • Transponder Chip Key Programming
    • You must have 2 working transponder chip keys in order to program a new transponder without the assistance of a professional.
    • The key to be programmed must be cut prior to beginning this programming procedure.
  • Key Fob Remote Programming
    • Obtain all remote transmitters for this vehicle. This procedure will erase all previously programmed remotes. You must program all existing and new remotes that you wish to use on the vehicle at this time.
    • You may clear your keyless entry system memory by entering programming mode as shown in the steps above.

Note: If your vehicle cannot enter programming mode, then you cannot program any remote.  This indicates either no keyless entry installed on the vehicle or a defective keyless entry receiver module.
