Once the vehicle enters programming mode, all previously learned remotes will be forgotten.  You must reprogram all of your remotes once the vehicle is in programming mode, including any previously working remotes.

This procedure must be done quickly, each step must be completed within 4 seconds of the previous step or the vehicle will exit programming mode and you must begin again from step 1.
