If you're using a new key you must program it to the car before it will work. To do this you'll need a key that already works. You're car uses a transponder key. So you can't use a 99 cent replacement key. It won't work. HTH. -Jim


I dont have the original key all i got is a copy would that work?

Not if it's not programmed to the car. -Jim
