Believe me. It happened to me before. I had to tow the car to the dealer to get it reprogrammed. I think they charged like an hour of labor.
But its got to be the dealers fault because the 2nd key they gave me was a CHEAP *** ILCO generic...i didnt even see the damn transponder on the side of the key...
I towed it up there...and im pretty sure by now, Using Consult II to reprogram the ECU is the only way that its gonna work
it wont cost me a dime...THATS FOR DAMN SURE......AAA and AARP sure come in handy with the TOWS +1!!!!
thanks for the info fellas
