Here is how to reset the security system. Remove the battery cable, then turn the key on and reconnect the battery. That should do it.
Here is how the factory says to do it, but it doesn't always work.
Unlock the car and disconnect the battery and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then reconnect the battery and lock and unlock the drivers door using the key.
The system should be reset.
If the key needs to be programmed the instructions are below.
The steps required to reprogram Sentry Keys with two valid Sentry Keys follows:
1.Obtain the blank Sentry Key(s) that need to be programmed. Cut the keys to match the ignition lock cylinder mechanical key codes.
2.Insert one of the two valid Sentry Keys into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
3.After the ignition switch has been in the ON position for longer than three seconds, but no more than fifteen seconds, cycle the ignition switch back to the OFF position. Replace the first valid Sentry Key in the ignition lock cylinder with the second valid Sentry Key and turn the ignition switch back to the ON position. The second valid Sentry Key must be inserted within 15 seconds of removing the first valid Sentry key.
4.About ten seconds after the completion of step 3, the indicator light will start to flash and a single audible chime tone will sound to indicate that the system has entered the "Customer Learn" programming mode.
5.Within sixty seconds of entering the "Customer Learn" programming mode, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, replace the valid Sentry Key with a blank Sentry Key transponder, and turn the ignition switch back to the ON position.
6.About ten seconds after the completion of step 5, a single audible chime tone will sound and the indicator light will stop flashing and stay on solid for three seconds and then turn off to indicate that the blank Sentry Key has been successfully programmed. The SKREES will immediately exit the "Customer Learn" programming mode and the vehicle may be started using the newly programmed Sentry Key.
