Insert the key into the ignition and turn it to the "RUN" position.
Turn off power to the radio.
Press the "RESET" button on the Driver Information Center (DIC) to clear any warning lights. The DIC is to the right of the instrument panel.
Press the "OPTIONS" button on the DIC until a blank message appears on the screen.
Press and hold "RESET" on the DIC for 2 seconds.
Push the "RESET" button once when the screen reads "FOB TRAINING." This will bring up the message "HOLD LK + UNLK 1ST FOB" on the DIC screen.
Hold down "LOCK" and "UNLOCK" on the remote at the same time for 15 seconds.
Watch the DIC, as it will read "FOB LEARNED" when the programming is accepted for that remote.
Repeat steps 8 and 9 to program any additional key
