Im not sure if anyone posted this but thanx to the guys at Contour.org for this.

To program a new key:




Buy a PATS key and have it cut.

Using a currently working key, place it in the ignition and turn it ON until the dash lights come on.

Turn the ignition off, remove key.

Within 10(?)seconds, place the new key in the ignition, turn the ignition ON until the dash lights come on.

Wait a few seconds for the PATS LED to stop blinking,

Turn igniton off, remove key.

New key is now programmed. This will work for up to 16 keys. After that you have to go to the dealer to have the memory reset.

For the Keyless Entry Transmitter:

Up to 4 transmitters can be programmed.




Gather up ALL of the units you want to use.

Find a paper clip, open it up and reform it into a U shape.

Empty your glove box, deflect the sides in, and drop it all the way down toward the floor.

Look at the harness behind the glove box. It runs along the cross brace. Look for a white, two pin, unterminated connector - it may be taped into the harness. This is the programming connector.

Turn the ignition ON so the dash lights come on.

Take your paper clip and insert it in to the two pin connector.

The horn will chirp to confirm that you are in programming mode.

Press any button on Transmitter #1.

Horn will chirp to confirm programming.

Press any button on Transmitter #2.

Horn will chirp to confirm programming.

Repeat for Transmitter #3 and #4 if applicable.

Remove paper clip from connector.

Turn igniton OFF, horn will chirp to confirm exit from programming mode.

hmm..The key thing has been found that the programming will disappear. Or thats what has been found if yo don't have 2 working keys already..I'll try to check the archives, but you can program your remotes without tearing apart your glovebox ;)
