however, if this is possible, I will accept it as a solution to my problem....

thanks once more...
The disabled key will still work the door locks manually. The only way to fix that is to switch the locks. But if the lost one had a remote doing the resync process switching the existing key(s) through the ignition will disable remote locking / unlocking.
