This can only be programmed by the dealer. Please return to your local dealer and they can program it in short order.

It has to be programmed .
Remote Transmitter Programming NOTE: All remote transmitters are programmable and must be set at the same time.
  1. Turn the key from OFF to RUN four times within three seconds, ending in RUN. The locks will then lock and unlock, confirming program mode has been entered.
  1. Press any button on each remote transmitter to be programmed. The doors will lock and unlock to confirm that each remote transmitter has been programmed.
  1. If additonal remote transmitters are to be programmed, repeat Step 3 within 7.5 seconds or steps 2 and 3 if more than 7.5 seconds have elapsed.
  1. To exit program mode, turn the ignition to START or wait 7.5 seconds.

My 2012 kia optima Fob died i replaced the battery but it still wont work unless i put it in the glovebox just to start the car the buttons on the fob doesnt work i only had the car for 2 months.

There is a possibility that your key fob might lost the programming. I suggest that you re-program your key fob, follow the next steps to re-program it.

    • 1 Sit in the vehicle and close all the doors. Insert the key into the ignition.
    • 2 Turn the key to the "Off" position then to the "On" position. Repeat this until the door locks cycle to indicate that the programming mode is activated. End with the ignition key in the "On" position.
    • 3 Press the "Unlock" or "Lock" button on the programmable remote. Listen for the doors to lock or unlock to verify successful programming.
    • 4 Turn the ignition key to the "Off" position. Listen for the door locks to cycle to indicate that you have exited the programming mode.
    • 5 Repeat the above steps to add any additional remotes.

I have a 2006 suzuki forenza. I had to replace the ignition key cylinder because my key got broken in the old one and did not come out. I installed the key cylinder. How do i program it the car will not...

Most newer cars have programmable keys. This means the key has to be programmed to the car computer. Call the dealership to see if your car requires a programmable key. If it does you have two options: 1) tow you car to the dealership and have it programmed 2) find a locksmith who has the programming equipment capable of programming your new key. Please note that usually when you buy a new ignition cylinder that they come with a mechanical key which is just a metal key that does not have the computer chip in it and can not be programmed. You would then have to buy a new programmable key and have the key cut and programmed to work in the lock cylinder.

MY PT Cruiser Functional transmitter and the one to be programmed both have no "PANIC" Button . How I programme the spare Fob

If you don't have the Panic button then sorry, you can't program yourself, the dealer will have to program it to the RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) module in the vehicle, using their DRB scan tool.

My PT Cruiser remote have no Panic Button How I programme another one

According to the 2003 Owners Manual:

You can program new keys to the system if you have two valid sentry keys by doing the following:
1. Cut the additional Sentry Key Transponder blank to match the ignition switch lock cylinder key code.
2. Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON for at least 3 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the first key.
3. Insert the second valid key and turn the ignition switch ON within 15 seconds. After ten seconds a chime will sound and the Theft Alarm Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch OFF and remove the second key.
4. Insert a blank Sentry Key into the ignition switch and turn the ignition switch ON within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds a single chime with sound. The Theft Alarm Light will stop flashing, turn on for 3 seconds; then turn off.

The new Sentry Key has been programmed. Repeat this process to program up to a total of 8 keys."

Without 2 valid keys, it is back to the dealer for them to reprogram.

Also, could check the Chrysler PT Cruiser Sedan - Convertible Owners Manual (page 17)

Hope helps.

Need to programm extra remote for entry on 2008 HHR

I know for 2006 HHRs you have to have it programmed by either the dealership or another shop with a scan tool.

Other user say that is NOT at all necessary to go to the DEALER, and send this tips straight from the 2009 Factory Service Manual:

1. With a previously learned master key, turn on the ignition, with the engine off.
2. Turn OFF the ignition and remove the key.
3. Within 10 seconds of turning off the ignition, insert the key to be learned and turn ON the ignition. The vehicle has now learned the new key.

A MASTER key is any key that already operates the vehicle.
All the above assumes the car in Italy is built to USA standards, if not all bets are off.

This is so simple even a CAVE man can do it. Why go to a dealer? I guess because that is what the Owners Manual says to do.

Up to 10 keys can be programmed into the BCM to operate the vehicle, while up to ONLY four Remote FOBs can be programmed.

The FOBs do have to be programmed at the Dealer or a well-equipped Locksmith may be able to handle it. If you are adding a FOB, gather up all your FOBs and take them to the person programming the vehicle. If the programmer makes a mistake or if four or more have ever been programmed to the vehicle, they may need them ALL present.

Hope helped with this (remember rated ths help) Good luck.

get into the truck and close and lock the door. place the key in and out of the ignition cylinder about six times(not too fast or slow) until you see the hazzard lights flash twice. then turn the key to the acc. position and then press the lock button on the remote(if lock doesn't work you can push another button on the remote). if the hazzard lights flash it is now programmed. then turn the key to off and pull it out and then unlock the door and open and close it. now test the remote.
