KEYLESS ENTRY KEYPAD
Enter 5-digit permanent factory entry code into keypad. This code can be found on owner's wallet card in glove box, or taped to Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) module. Within 5 seconds of pressing last button of permanent factory entry code, press 1/2 button on keypad. Holding 1/2 button for more than 2 seconds will erase customer code. Doors will lock and unlock to confirm code has been erased. Within 5 seconds of holding 1/2 button, enter a new 5-digit customer code into keyless entry keypad. Doors will lock and unlock to confirm programming has been successful

If u read in the 1st posting I did

KEYLESS ENTRY KEYPAD
Enter 5-digit permanent factory entry code into keypad. This code can be found on owner's wallet card in glove box,
((or taped to Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) module)).

Within 5 seconds of pressing last button of permanent factory entry code, press 1/2 button on keypad. Holding 1/2 button for more than 2 seconds will erase customer code. Doors will lock and unlock to confirm code has been erased. Within 5 seconds of holding 1/2 button, enter a new 5-digit customer code into keyless entry keypad. Doors will lock and unlock to confirm programming has been successful
