Try this to re-program your remote: Insert main key into the ignition lock & switch on the ignition (do not start car). Using second key lock the vehicle from the outside manually (use key in door lock). Hold door locked for 15 seconds. Release key. Press unlock button on the remote control one time, wait at least two seconds or more. Press unlock button on the remote control again, wait at least two seconds or more. Manually open car using key in door lock. Remove key from ignition. Test your remote.
