Programming without Two Recognized Keys (Key Vehicles Only)
Program a new key to the vehicle when a recognized key is not available. Canadian regulations require that owners see their dealer.

The vehicle must be off and all of the keys you wish to program must be with you.

1. Insert the new vehicle key into the ignition.

2. Turn to ON/RUN. The security light will come on.

3. Wait 10 minutes until the security light turns off.

4. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.

5. Repeat Steps 2–4 two more times. After the third time, turn to ON/RUN; the key is learned and all previously known keys will no longer work with the vehicle.

6. To learn a second key, turn to LOCK/OFF, insert the second key to be learned, and rotate to ON/RUN. After two keys are learned, remaining keys can be learned by
following the procedure in “Programming with Two Recognized Keys (Key Vehicles Only).”
