Required Items

Before we begin, ensure you have the following items:

  • Simple key package
  • Current working key
  • Access to your vehicle
  • New key cut beforehand

Initial Setup

First, open the simple key package and lay out all the items. You should have a user guide, an easy installer, and a new key. Ensure the plastic protector on the easy installer is intact and does not say ‘void.’ If it does, return the package to the retailer as it may have been used with another vehicle.

Activating Your New Key

To activate your new key, locate the activation code for your key fob. This information is available in your user guide or on the back of your current key fob. For example, if you have a Chrysler Aspen, check the FCC ID on the back of the key fob to determine the correct activation code.

Follow these steps to activate the key:

  1. Press the lock and panic buttons simultaneously.
  2. Enter the activation code one digit at a time:
    • First digit: Lock
    • Second digit: Panic
    • Third digit: Unlock
  3. Press the lock and panic buttons again to confirm.

If the light blinks back the correct code, you are good to go. If not, repeat the process.

Pairing Process

Locate the OBD Port

The OBD port is usually located under the dashboard near the pedals. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual if you cannot find it.

Setting the Dial Position

Set the dial position on the easy installer according to your vehicle model:

  • Chrysler 200, PT Cruiser, or Sebring: Set to 1
  • Chrysler 300 or Aspen: Set to 2

Note that the Chrysler 300 and Aspen have an alternate dial position. If position 2 doesn’t work, try position 1.

Pairing the New Key

Follow these steps to pair your new key:

  1. Ensure all doors are closed and the vehicle is off and in park.
  2. Turn on the hazard lights.
  3. Insert the original key and start the engine.
  4. Remove the tab from the easy installer and insert it into the OBD port.
  5. Wait up to 8 seconds for three beeps, indicating the device is recognized.
  6. Turn off the vehicle and remove the old key.
  7. Insert the new key and turn it to the ‘on’ or ‘run’ position without starting the engine.
  8. Press and release the button on the easy installer.
  9. Wait up to 8 seconds for three beeps.
  10. Turn off the vehicle, remove the key, and press the button on the easy installer once more to hear a chime sound.

If you hear the chime, your new key is now paired. Test both the old and new keys to ensure they work.

Programming Additional Keys

You can program up to eight keys using the same easy installer. To program additional keys, repeat the activation and pairing process for each new key.

Common Errors and Solutions

If you encounter any issues during the pairing process, refer to the following solutions:

Error Messages

  • Eight beeps: Maximum of eight keys already paired. Contact customer service.
  • Two beeps: Easy installer connected to another vehicle. Return the package and get a new one.
  • Three beeps: Original key not detected. Ensure you have the correct key.

Dial Position Issues

If your new key won’t pair, try the alternate dial position for Chrysler 300 and Aspen models. Unplug the OBD port, set the dial to the alternate position, and start the process again.

Unplugging the Easy Installer

If the easy installer is unplugged during the pairing process, you will need to start over from the beginning.

Old and New Key Not Starting the Vehicle

If neither key starts the vehicle after pairing, contact customer service for assistance.
