1) Sit in the driver's seat
2) Remove the ignition key from the ignition lock cylinder
3) Close all the doors
4) Press and hold unlock on the door lock switch (on the door)
5) While holding the door lock switch in the unlock position, insert and remove the ignition key twice. DO NOT ROTATE THE KEY.. JUST SLIDE IT IN AND BACK OUT.
6) Insert the ignition key the third time, leaving the key in the ignition cylinder. DO NOT TURN KEY
7) Release the door lock switch. You will hear 3 chimes indicating the transmitter
programming is active.
8) Press and hold the lock and unlock buttons on the keyless entry remote at the same time (one remote) for 12 seconds. You will hear two chimes. This indicates the
transmitter has been programmed.
9) Repeat step 8 for all additional transmitters to be programmed
10) Exit programming by removing the key from the ignition cylinder


Bah, after reading your post again, I see you are trying to program the actual key. Hold on, lemme find more info.


Looks like you have to have at least 1 master key to program any new ones. If you do not have any other working keys, I think only the dealer can program it.

1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position.
The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten minutes.
2. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back to the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
3. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back on the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
4. After the security light has gone off the third time, the key has been programmed
into the vehicle’s computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the
previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the
vehicle’s computer.
