There is loads of guides on here and the internet on how to do it.

If it's a brand new one it would be easiest to do it with ISTA/P.

Is your car covered by the FRM extended warranty?
Thanks! Yeah I am JUST out of the extended FRM warranty: mine is 2011 with 159,000 miles. I believe FRM warranty is 156,000 miles or 10 years.
I think plan B would be to buy a new one and code it in. What you wrote helps thank you! If I were to buy one, I would start looking for exact procedure.
For now trying to find local shop that will rewrite the EEPROM data, seems like some places to id for a bout $150.
