Yes it will need to go to the dealer. Or as juan said locksmith if they can I have heard they can but never seen it for myself. And also as juan stated the software from the old one should have been transferred to the new one via scan tool. So if you or someone else just pulled the old one out and put a new one in then the pcm will have to be programmed also. Then the keys will have to be programmed to it.
