You don't...........

You program the car to accept the key using a PST II/PIWIS.................

You can't program the key yourself, you will need to go to a dealer or mechanic that has a PST II/PIWIS. You will also need the white tag that should have come with the key, so that it can be programed. If you buy the key used, and it doesn't have the tag with it, it can't be programed.

Hello again everyone. My key fob quit unlocking the door/trunk, however the red light on the fob still flashes. I may have dropped it and the circuit board may be broken inside (no visible damage). I replaced the battery (2032) with no luck. I'm thinking I need to get it reprogrammed/PST2? I attached a photo of what I think is the key code. Is this the right code the dealership needs to reprogram? Thanks, Chris

Here is the actual key fob that quit working. The other picture was in a packet that came with the owners manual from the previous owner.
