The key(s) will require reinitialization. Go to the car, open the drivers door and get in. Shut the door. Put the key in the ignition and turn it on, then take it out and then hold the unlock button and while holding the unlock button push the lock button 3 times, then release both buttons. Then what should happen is that all the doors will lock and then unlock. If there is another key(s) then do the same process of holding the unlock button and pressing the lock button 3x. Do not open the doors or insert the 2nd key in the ignition for the procedure, just press the buttons on the subsequent keys (up to 4 keys) When you open the door or start the car, the initialization session is then over. The dealer charges for this operation, can we count on you for a reasonable donation today?
