If you have two valid keys, you can program
new keys to the system by performing the
following procedure:

 

  1. Cut the additional Sentry Key_ Transponder blank(s) to match the ignition switch lock cylinder key code. Lowes will do this cheaply.
  2. Insert the first valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position for at least three seconds, but no longer than 15 seconds. Then, turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and remove the first key.
  3. Insert the second valid key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position within 15 seconds. After 10 seconds, a chime will sound. In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will begin to flash. Turn the ignition switch  to the LOCK position and remove the second key.
  4. Insert a blank key into the ignition switch. Turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position within 60 seconds. After 10 seconds, a single chime will sound. In addition, the Vehicle Security Light will stop flashing. To indicate that programming is complete, the Vehicle Security Light will turn on again for three seconds and then turn off. The new key is programmed.
  5. The Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter will also be programmed during this procedure.

Repeat this procedure to program up to eight keys. If you do not have a programmed key, contact a capable lock smith or a dealer for details.
NOTE:If a programmed key is lost, see your dealer to have all remaining keys erased from the system’s memory. This will prevent the lost key from starting your vehicle. The remaining keys must then be reprogrammed. All vehicle keys must be taken to a dealer at the time of service to be reprogrammed.
