Dking078 is right. Just buy the new key. Better safe than sorry. And $170 really isn't too much of a rip. My local dealer wants $165 for a new "diamond" key fob. But of course I get 25% discount...

Yeah your car was not fitted with DSP. If it did, it would be listed as code "S677A HiFi System Professional DSP". That's what it is on my car.

If you mean non operation of the a/c as in it's off then no of course not. The -40 is from a faulty outside temp sensor. It may affect it while the a/c is on but who knows. My control system had no...

My car has had a creaky noise in the steering column similar to a rocking chair when the wheel is only turned a little bit in each direction. I've done some search but most of which say it has...

You gonna replace the gasket then? I've looked online and you'd be looking between $10-15 each for a new one depending where you buy from. Not cheap, but not horribly overpriced. Heck it might be one...

I am doing it with the trip computer as described online. Last time it reset after one try. Now it won't do it at all. I've tried about 20 times and nothing.
