NOTE NOTE !!!

WHEN PROGRAMMING A 3rd KEY YOURSELF YOU MUST KEEP ALL 3 KEYS SEPARATED OR ELSE IT WILL NOT PROGRAM!! THE MANUAL DOES NOT SPECIFY THIS SPECIFIC PROCEDURE. KEEP ONE KEY ON PASSENGER'S FLOOR MAT ANOTHER ONE IN DRIVER'S MAT AND ANOTHER ONE IN THE MIDDLE SEAT, OR ELSE IT WILL NOT PROGRAM IF YOU KEEP ALL 3 KEYS TOGETHER.

I didn't have that problem. I had them all in my lap when I ran them all through (three total). Two originals and a third for a spare. Maybe I was just lucky. The salesman was standing right there when I did it.

I did. I tried everything step by step and nothing it would not crank. I almost stopped by dealer to pay them 80 buks to program... but google.com saved me. after searching and searching i stumbled on this one forum and a post said to have all keys separated and bam it programmed that one time no problems.
