Keys can be programming in various ways using the procedures outlined below. Usingthe Replacing Keys procedures will first erase all the known keys from the vehicle.Any existing keys and any new keys will then be programmed. This procedure shouldbe used any time a key is required to be unlearned or erased from a vehicle. If anew key is being learned to a vehicle to replace a damaged, inoperative, or stolenkey, the Replacing Keysprocedure must be used. This ensures that the old key cannot be used to access orstart the vehicle after programming.

The Adding Keys procedure does not erase any keys prior to programming. The procedurewill simply program the key into the next available slot. The Adding Keys procedureshould only be used when adding an additional key to the vehicle. The Adding Keysprocedure should never be used to program a key to a vehicle that is having a keyreplaced, regardless of the cause for the replacement.

Replacing Keys (With SPS)

Note:

This procedure may be used with or without existing learned keys being present.A total of eight keys maybe be learned to a single vehicle.This procedure will only learn the vehicle key information. This procedure will notlearn any immobilizer information between the body control module (BCM) and enginecontrol module (ECM).If the battery voltage is low, charge the battery before continuing with the procedure.Connect a scan tool to the vehicle and access SPS.Ensure that all power consuming devices are turned OFF on the vehicle.Select the SPS application and follow the on-screen instructions.Select Reprogram ECU.Select IMMO Immobilizer Learn - Setup.Select the Program Transponder or Remote Key (Delete) function.Follow the on-screen instructions.After programming all keys, “Programming Complete” is displayed.Press the lock and unlock button on each key that was programmed.
