Hello - Welcome again.

This is MIKE - I answered you before. Im afraid as you listed a new question here - I just did not see it - until I stumbled across it in the lists today - Im sorry about that - its just the way the system works....

Now - with this there are three different types of key on this year range - which is why I was trying to cover all angles for you... but - on that year range, you should have the type actually that you don't use the blade of the key - it is an electric stub that goes into a slot in the dash... If it is definately that type, then any additional / replacement key fobs do have to be programmed....

Let me know if you need anything more - but be sure to reply to me here - on this post - so I don't lose you ....

*** Meanwhile - - >>>> Please do click on the "OK/ Excellent ratings" for me - Thank you in advance for that...

You can and are most welcome to get back to me anytime you might need - clicking the OK ratings does not close you out at all..

Kind Rgds, MIKE.
