how do i program a new key into 2009 Chevy Captiva? I bought a new key after the other keys got lost and i want to know if the manual GM key programming procedure could work. I also read that i might need to program with 2 keys. Can a GM tech2 tool do the necessary programming? I await your response,regards

The programming is done through the scan tool diagnostic function. I'm not sure whether the tool you describe would be correct. What I do know is that all of the keyts for the vehicle need to be programmed in the one session as the programming will nulify any keys not programmed in that session. Using an unprogrammed key in the ignition barrel resets the codes and the vehicle needs to be reset for it to start. I know, I was that soldier....

I'll try a GM tech2 dealership tool on because I initially tried the 30min manual key programming procedure but it didn't work. I also have drew tech pass thru device..I will that too.
