      It should come right up… Assuming you do have the factory keyless system on the vehicle and that you have not altered the electrical system on the car. If you have changed out the radio, or have an aftermarket alarm on the car it might be affected. Try rebooting by disconnecting the car’s battery for a few minutes and then trying the procedure again.
