    I tried doing this a couple of times. On the part where You press the hazard button 6 times, nothing happens. The doors don’t lock or unlock. We have two keys for the car and I’ve tried both. No luck. Am I right to say that the keys I have are not master keys?
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you!

      If you still aren’t having any luck, you can try rebooting the keyless system by doing an electrical reset on the vehicle.
      To do this you would simply disconnect one of the car’s battery cables for about 15-20 minutes, reconnect and then try the programming again.
      Sometimes this will solve any ‘bugs’ that may be keeping the remote from programming.
