RE: Re-Program Your Keys
I bought one of the remote key fobs from ebay. I tried just about everything that I could do to get it to work to no avail. I switched the blade from my old key to the ebay one, and when I started my car, it died about one second later. Everything back to normal when I put the blade back on my old fob and started my car.
A few months ago I lost my key and had to purchase a new one. About $130 IIRC. The keyless entry didn't work initially, but after placing it in and out of my ignition a few times it worked.
I talked to four dealers about reprogramming the ebay fob. 2 said they could do it, 2 said it could not be done. I haven't had them try yet, so I can't report on that.
