All a replacement key is for is to unlock the doors for when you lock the keys inside, you need to ask the dealer for a replacement ignition key with the sensor in it to turn on the ignition

try this first, make sure all doors are locked. Insert door key in drivers side door lock and turn key left for 3-5 seconds then turn to the right with a little pressure. open door. Insert key in ignition and turn to on ONLY! wait at least 30 seconds, then turn key to start allow to idle for a few minutes. If problem persists, the remote is not functioning properly. contact a locksmith for reprogramming or replacement. A lock shop will be cheaper than the dealer! Hope this helps you!

How do you program new spare key for 2007 rodeo RA?


if its the ignition key it must be done by a dealer and have a lage black plastic head which has got a transponder in it. If you got a blank key cut at the locksmith it will turn the locks but wont start the car. Usually you get the dealer to do both supply ignition key and then get it cut, then they can program it.

but if your asking how to program the keyless entry remote follow this procedure.
take note step 5 is different for different year models.


Make sure that all the doors are closed and unlocked and wait for dome light to go out before starting.


Insert the ignition key into the ignition switch


Open drivers door


3 on/lock


Close/open drivers door


Wait 8 secs


On/lock/on (MY06-07) OR 2 on/lock OR on/lock (MY08)


Close drivers door

Press remote & keep pressing one button & then the other slowly(2 secs) until locks start working(they wont operate if key is in ignition).

Close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds.
Then insert the key into the ignition key cylinder and close the door.
Turn the ignition switch from LOCK to ON and back once and remove key
Locks should cycle once.
Within 40 seconds press the LOCK and UNLOCK switches on the transmitter switch simultaneously for 1.0 – 1.5 seconds.
Within 3 seconds after the previous operation, press either one of the switches for more than 1.0 seconds.
Within 3 seconds after the transmitter switch has been turned OFF, the LOCK–UNLOCK operation will be automatically performed once if the registration of the recognition code of the transmitter is completed correctly.
In case the LOCK–UNLOCK operation is performed twice, the registration of recognition code has failed.
Perform the registration procedure from the beginning once

To find out if the key is bad go to local lock smith and ask for a code key from the vin number they will tell you you need a chip that is correct but the key will open the door and turn on the ignition. if the new key works then your key is bad and the dealer can make you one for about 100.00 dollars if it still dont turn then the key cylinder is bad and it will need to be replaced good luck

Keyless entry remote


Try this, it works on several 2002 models:


Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.

Step 2: Lock and unlock the drivers door using the power door lock switch on the door.

Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.

Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.

Step 5: Open and close the drivers door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).

Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.

Step 7: Press any button on remote #1. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.

Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.

Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks.
