You may have to go to the dealership and get the Service Bulletin on this one. Sometimes the owner's manual is NOT correct. You may see what the Dealership charges to reprogram BUT... I'd bet it is at least $75. This is USUALLY a simple task. Maybe try it again a couple of times before you head to the Dealership. "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again". I've had to do this 4-5 times before it would reprogram on similar cars.... DOUBLE CHECK the battery in the remote for voltage. You might want to replace it anyway. That way you won't have to go thru this when the battery in the remote dies... In a 6 year old car, it's about at the end of its life cycle.

Is the battery good in the remote? Is the remote working? Did the car come with keyless remote?
If you stop by a big box part store they have a tester to check the remote. Sometimes when the battery is replaced there is a solder joint that brakes.

• Resynchronization may be necessary due to the security method used by the remote keyless entry system. Resynchronization may be necessary due to the security method used by the remote keyless entry system.
The transmitter does not send the same signal twice to the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). • The RCDLR will not respond to a signal that has been sent previously. This prevents anyone from recording and playing back the signal from the transmitter. • Resynchronization may be necessary under the following conditions: - The battery in the transmitter is very weak. - The battery in the transmitter was replaced. - The battery in the vehicle has been in a low or no charge condition for an extended period of time. • In order to resynchronize the transmitter with the RCDLR, perform the following steps: 1. Stand within 1.5 m (5 ft) from the vehicle. 2. Simultaneously press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter for 7 seconds
