New ignition cylinder keys reprogram HELP

My ignition cylinder locked up on me and i got a new one from autozone. It came with new keys and before i take out the old one i need to know how to reprogram the new pats keys to the car so when i replace it then i can use the new keys. Any help would be appreciated. I already called some locksmiths but they charge way to much.

If the ignition cylinder is locked you can't program them yourself. Your going to have to have a dealer do it.
The process of programming them is by putting the old key in and turing it to ON Like 3 times then putting in the new key and doing it.

I'm dealing with the same exact thing right now. There is a little green connector behind the cylinder. Hold the key sideways, teeth pointing towards the dash. I held mine in all different positions until I figured it out. I do not have a new cylinder yet. I'm turning the ignition with a screw driver for now with as I have removed the cylinder.

Try this. Your gonna need two original (already programmed) keys or it won't work. Your also gonna need some quick hands, a buddy might be in order. Take the pats transponder off the steering column but leave it plugged in. With your new ignition cylinder installed turn the key to the run position for three seconds holding an original key up to the now dangling transponder ring. The theft light will be solid for three seconds and turn off if your holding the key correctly. Turn the ignition off. Now turn it back to the run position and hold your second original/programmed key up to the transponder. Again, if held correctly the theft light will be on for three than off. Now do the same thing again with one of your new keys. That key should now be programmed. You'll know if not, the theft light will be flashing. This should all be done in about 15 to 20 seconds. Make sure the theft light goes on then goes off before going to the next step. If it starts flashing, do it over again, but wait a good five minutes before the next attempt. This is what we call "two then new." Do the "two then new" with your other key and now your set. If you can't get this to work it's dealer time.

If they don't look almost exactly like the originals, then they probably don't have a chip.
