KEYLESS TRANSMITTER REPROGRAMMING

Note: The Security System RF handset transmitters can be programmed manually in case a Portable Diagnostic Unit (PDU) is not immediately available.

Procedure

Note : All RF handset transmitters belonging to the vehicle being serviced must be available. If the learning process is carried out without having all the transmitters present, all previous transmitter codes will be overwritten, rendering the missing transmitters inoperable.

Hold headlight flasher back.
Turn ignition key to position 1.
Flash headlights 4 times.
Alarm will enter programming mode. This will be confirmed by "beeps" from the alarm and flashing led on gearshift.

Program each transmitter (up to 5) by pressing the lock or unlock button on the each transmitter once. The alarm will "honk" when you press the transmitter button.

The alarm must honk 5 times to complete the programming. Therefore, if you are only programming one transmitter you should operate the transmitter 5 times. If you are programming two transmitters you will operate one transmitter twice, and three times on the other. For five transmitters you will operate each transmitter once.

I would start with the transmitter. If it is programmed then you will need the dealer as they are the only ones with the needed scanner to program the key
