How do I program my key fob to a 94 Olds 98 regency?


Assuming it's a standard GM half moon style key fob, you can get replacements soon many sources including dealerships, locksmiths, and ebay.

Programming depends on whether you already have a working key?

If you don't, you will have to go to a dealer or find a locksmith who has the right equipment (I suspect not many do).

THis works for Holden Commodores of that era, most GM products should be similar:
If you have a working key, it's relatively straight forward, as the car can program new keys.
1 remove screws holding key blades into the remote heads of both keys.
2 remote the key blade from the *new* key and put aside.
3 insert old (working) key into ignition and start the car.
4 with car running, carefully slide the remote head off the key in the ignition barrel. Car should stay running.
5 carefully slide new remote head onto the old key blade sitting in ignition. Make sure the metal contact inside the key blade insert makes contact with the key blade. Make certain the small contact pin on the facing edge of the remote makes contact with the metal slide ring on the outside of the ignition barrel - these two contacts form a circuit.
6 The key fob should program almost immediately, but leave the fob in position for 30 secs to a minute to ensure its done.
7 turn car off and reassemble keys.
8 test all functions of new key - remote entry and engine start.

(get key blank cut by a locksmith before commencing the above!)

Changed ignition and door locks and now my hyundai sonata wont start


Your original keys had a computer chip in them that is programed to your car's computer and you will have to have a dealership reprogram your new keys to match your car's computer. or if you still have the original ignition lock you can reinstall it and contact your local dealership and give them your car's Vin# which is located on title or vehicle registration. And most dealerships can make you a new ignition key. Then your car should sta

Will not start


Hey Sidney. On G6 it has a pass lock anti theft- in which your key is programmed into the computer. If the key is not programmed into the computer or ECM, then nothing at all, heres the steps, and where it says a new cut key on 1, ignore that, just use your key, and also you will need to take your g6 into the dealership and have them reflash the ECM, and program the VIN number into your new ECM, if not it might throw the check engine light.

1. Insert a new cut key in ignition and turn key to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds.

2. Within 45 seconds turn the key to OFF and then back to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds. 3. Within 45 seconds turn the key to OFF and then back to the ON position for
10 minutes and 30 seconds.

4. Turn key OFF then back ON. The key is now programmed.
Start vehicle to test key.

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.

What can i do to program key for frod expedition 1997


In order to program your own chipped keys you need 2 keys that will start the vehicle. Start by putting the first key that starts the vehicle into the ignition and turn it to the run position(not the start position) and back to the off position. Within 10 seconds repeat this step with the second key that starts it. Then within 10 seconds put in the new key and turn it to the start position. The vehicle should turn on and the new key will be programmed. If you do not have 2 keys that start the vehicle then you will have to take it to a Ford dealership so that they can program new keys for you.

I put in a new pcm in and my car will not do anything except the warning lights come on like always and go off and the security light stays on


When you replaced the PCM did you have it programmed with your original vin# to remove the old one? This sounds like you didnt. Get a programmer to check it out for you. They are linked with the ignition, some keys and obviously the ECM.

Cant turn the key to start vehicle


This problem must be handled by the dealership. The PAT's system is on and the only way to turn it off now is with the dealership computer through the OBDII diagnostic link.

The PATs system is detecting your key as the wrong key. You may have to have a new key programed for the car if the key was damaged.
