Thanks Eric; Might be the EIS ?
Still don't know who locally might be able to do the programming if it IS possible - I'm thinking the TCU is VIN coded though.
Anyway, I had my TCU repaired and now I can start the CL ONE TIME. No further starter action until I do a hard reboot (disconnect battery, wait a few minutes, reconnect).
Does this sound like an EIS problem ?
Note that I only have one key at the moment - ironically, I have a new spare waiting for me at the dealer... picture me telling the Service Writer that the tech needs to go into the trunk and do a hard reboot every time he turns the car off... right.
