Hello,

I have the same type of issue as replacement keys are available either through the dealer or places like EBAY but be advised the key has a chip built in it where it needs to be coded to your vehicle. This is if it's for the ignition if just for the doors then you should be able to have a locksmith help you after you buy one but that replacement key most likely will NOT fit the ignition due to the chip. Hope this helps. Just keep shopping and be aware of crazy high prices.

Why wont my dodge neon allow me to gain access to my ecu to program my new key, so my car will crank or start.


In order to program a new key, you have to have two working keys that are already programmed. The engine control is programmed that way to prevent a parking valet from programming their own key.
YOU MUST HAVE TWO WORKING KEYS or the controller will shut off the engine.


The locksmith should have changed the pins in the new lock to match your original key. The controller would have recognized it and let you drive the car. So, you either need to call the locksmith back to fit the old key to the new ignition cylinder, or get it to a dealer so they can instruct the brain to accept the new key. And get two keys while you are at it as a back up.

Can I program my replacement fob key without going to the dealer if I don't have an extra key


there are many shops who can program your key and much more easier if you have a working fob key already.If not it is good to take your car to the shop with the new fob key and they will do it for you,I believe with less money than the dealer. Ask and try it.

Once a new key is programmed, will an old key still work in a 2005 Chevy Malibu?


Not sure about Chevy's, but when my husband lost his keys for his Ford, he got a new key programmed, and when he found his "lost" key, it still worked. Try it. Don't think it will hurt it if it doesn't work, but check with a dealer.

Program new key for montana


As long as you still have one that works, it's easy.
1) Insert the "original" (working) Key.2) Turn the Ignition to ON (RUN), but do NOT start the engine. Turn the Ignition OFF and remove the key.3) Within 15 seconds insert the new key and turn the Ignition to the ON (just to ON, not to START) position. The Security indicator should light up for about 2 seconds to indicate that the new key has been programmed.
At that point, it should work. I don't know how many different keys you can get the Theft Deterrent Module to recognize; there may be a limit.
If you're don't have a working key now, it's much more time-consuming;the procedure to get the TDM to recognize a different key takes about 30 minutes when you don't have an old one that works.

My 316ti compact wont lock with the remote, if it is not the key then what next?


Depending on the age of the car.. it may simply be the battery in the key.

You can either buy a new key.. or pry open the key and replace the 5 dollar battery.. you need to be handy with a soldering gun..

Before you do this.. you can try reprogramming the key..

1:Get in the car and close all of the doors.

2: Turn key on (1st position), and wait for all the lights to go out before turning ignition off. (or under five seconds)

Perform next steps within 30 seconds.

3: Press and hold the UNLOCK button on the key.

4: While still holding the UNLOCK button, press and release the LOCK button three times. Do this deliberately, not too quickly.

5: Release the unlock button. Car's locks should cycle, indicating the key is programmed.

6: On some cars, all keys are cleared from memory, so you will need to repeat steps 2-4 for any other keys.

7: Once all keys are programmed, use the last programmed key to turn the ignition on and back off one last time.

If programming more than one key.. Must be done within 30 seconds of completing the above steps.

This is the first step.. next would be checking the receiver ..I believe it is located in or near the rear view mirror on that car.

If you replace the key battery..or the key(s).. you will have to use the above programming steps to get them to work properly.

Best of luck!

Reprogram keyless entry


It took me a few attempts to program a new keyless remote for my 2002 Chevy Blazer.
Insert key into ignition but don' turn it yet. While holding down the UNLOCK switch on the door, the trick is to cycle the ignition ON OFF ON OFF as quickly as possible then release the UNLOCK switch. If done correctly the door locks will cycle 1x to acknowledge. Then hold both the unlock and lock buttons down on the remote for about 15 seconds. The locks should cycle again to confirm...Hope this helps.
