So if you only have one key, or if you have...

Sometimes the issues can be taken care of by completing what is called a hard reset or hard reboot on your vehicle. This doesn't work all of the time, and sometimes you may have to complete this process four or five times. But doing this may help you avoid having your mechanic program the unit to your vehicle.  A hard reset is easy to complete. You do have to be...
