The Customer Learn programming method procedures are as follows:
1. Obtain the blank Sentry Key(s) that are to be programmed as valid
keys for the vehicle. Cut the blank key(s) to match the ignition switch
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 3 seconds, but no more than 15 seconds, cycle the ignition switch
back to the OFF position. Replace the first valid Sentry Key in the
ignition switch 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 in the lock cylinder within 15 seconds of removing
the first valid key.
4. About 10 seconds after the completion of Step #3
the security indicator in the instrument cluster will start to flash
and a single audible chime will sound to indicate that the system has
entered the Customer Learn programming mode.
5. Within 60 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 10 seconds after the completion of Step #5
a single audible chime will sound and the security indicator will stop
flashing, stay ON solid for 3 seconds, then turn OFF to indicate that
the blank Sentry Key has been successfully programmed. The SKIS will
immediately exit the Customer Learn programming mode. After the
ignition is cycled the vehicle may be started using the newly
programmed valid Sentry Key.
Each of these steps must be repeated and completed in their entirety
for each additional Sentry Key that is to be programmed. If the above
steps are not completed in the given sequence, or within the allotted
time, the SKIS will exit the Customer Learn programming mode and the
programming will be unsuccessful. The SKREEM will also automatically
exit the Customer Learn programming mode if it sees a non-blank Sentry
Key transponder when it should see a blank, if it has already
programmed 8 valid Sentry Keys, or if the ignition switch is turned to
the OFF position for more than about 50 seconds.
