The remote control portion of the key can be programmed without any software. Here are the instructions:

Method 1:

Working from within the vehicle and with the doors shut:

  • Turn ignition to position 1 and back to off within 5 seconds.
  • Remove the key from ignition and press and hold the unlock button for 15 seconds. During this time press the key lock button 3 times within 5 seconds.
  • Release both buttons.
  • Doors will lock and unlock to show correct programming has occurred.


Method 2:

For this procedure, you need to have one working key and another key that needs to be programmed.

  • Get in and close all doors.
  • Turn on the ignition and turn off quickly (no more than 5 seconds). Next action must take place within 30 seconds.
  • Remove the 1st key.
  • Hold the key up near your left shoulder (so it is closer to the remote receiver antenna).
  • Hold down the unlock button and press the lock button 3 times. Release the unlock button and the doors lock which confirms the operation.
  • Quickly repeat steps 4 & 5 for key #2 etc.

If it does not work, try doing the keys in opposite order. Key 2 then key 1, vs 1 then 2.


Method 3:

Alternate if you do not have a working remote:

  • Turn key to position 1 five times very quickly.
  • Remove key.
  • Hold unlock button, then press lock button 3 times. Release unlock button.
  • If you have another key, perform the same button-pressing sequence within 30 seconds.
  • Turn on ignition to finalize.
