Programming Transmitters to the Vehicle

Only RKE transmitters programmed to this vehicle will work. If a transmitter is lost or stolen, a replacement can be purchased and programmed through your dealer. When the replacement transmitter is programmed to this vehicle, all remaining transmitters must also be reprogrammed. Any lost or stolen transmitters will no longer work once the new transmitter is programmed. Each vehicle can have up to five transmitters matched to it.

Programming with a Recognized Transmitter

A new transmitter can be programmed to the vehicle when there is one recognized transmitter. For vehicles sold in Canada, two recognized transmitters are required to program a new transmitter. To program, the vehicle must be off and all of the transmitters, both currently recognized and new, must be in the vehicle.

1. Place the recognized transmitter(s) in the cupholder.

2. Insert the vehicle key of the new transmitter into the key lock cylinder on the outside of the driver door and turn the key to the unlock position five times within 10 seconds.

The Driver Information Center (DIC) displays READY FOR REMOTE #2, 3, 4 or 5.

3. Remove the rubber mat in the instrument panel storage. Extend the key blade on the new transmitter and insert the key blade into the transmitter slot.

4. Press and hold the POWER button on the center stack for two seconds. When the transmitter is programmed, the DIC will show that it is ready to program the next transmitter.

5. Remove the transmitter from the transmitter slot and press UNLOCK on the transmitter.

To program additional transmitters, repeat steps 3 through 5.

When all additional transmitters are programmed, press and hold the POWER button for 10 seconds to exit programming mode.

Programming without a Recognized Transmitter

Non-Canadian (U.S.) owners are permitted to program a new transmitter to their vehicle when a recognized transmitter is not available. The Canadian regulations require that Canadian owners see their dealer for programming new transmitters when two recognized transmitters are not available.

If there are no currently recognized transmitters available, follow this procedure to program up to five transmitters. The vehicle must be off and all of the transmitters must be in the vehicle.

1. Insert the vehicle key of the transmitter into the key lock cylinder on the outside of the driver door and turn the key to the unlock position five times within 10 seconds.

The Driver Information Center (DIC) displays REMOTE LEARN PENDING, PLEASE WAIT.

2. Wait for 10 minutes until the DIC displays PRESS START BUTTON TO LEARN and then press the POWER button on the center stack.

The DIC display will again show REMOTE LEARN PENDING, PLEASE WAIT.

3. Repeat step 2 two more times. After the third time, all previously known transmitters will no longer work with the vehicle. Remaining transmitters can be programmed during the next steps.

The DIC display should now show READY FOR REMOTE #1.

4. Remove the rubber mat in the instrument panel storage. Extend the key blade on the new transmitter and insert the key blade into the transmitter slot.

5. Press and hold the POWER button for two seconds. When the transmitter is programmed, the DIC will show that it is ready to program the next transmitter.

6. Remove the transmitter from the transmitter slot and press UNLOCK on the transmitter.

To program additional transmitters, repeat Steps 4 through 6.

When all additional transmitters are programmed, press and hold the POWER button for 10 seconds to exit programming mode.
