Cecil, my advice is take it to the dealer and see if they can help get it reprogrammed. Or, call a locksmith, they know how to make duplicate smart keys, so, I think they may also have a clue. Good luck.

OR go to WIKI and ask how to reprogram your remote ... most cars are so easy that you may volunteer to do your friends
