Enter your car with your ignition key and your remote switch and insert your key into the ignition. Turn the key in the ignition from "Off" to "Run" eight times in 10 seconds, and end the eighth turn in the "Run" position. Wait for the locks to automatically cycle on and off. Press and hold any button on your remote within 20 seconds of the eighth turn. Hold the button for as long as 20 seconds until the locks automatically click and then release. Remove your key from the ignition to end the resetting process.
