its very tricky and varies on the car and the person who is doing it shortest time for me has been about 35 min. you try to start the car then turn the key to the off position wait like 5min try it again after about 3 to 4 times of doing this leave the key on the on position and wait 5 to 10 min and try to start it again good luck


You have to pay the dealer to program the auto locking
