It seems like PATS will only hold 3 keys. I programmed a 4th and now one of the originals will not work.

Yeah. I think it's good for up to 8.

Oh you said *one of* the originals doesn't work. I'm guessing you made a slight error in your reprogramming. Try it again. You skipped something during the programming of the 3rd or 4th key as you need the first 2 to program any more.

I do know from experience that if you go to fast, it seems the car gets confused and forgets a key. Just try the programming again. I think I got it on the 3rd try.

There is a parameter in the PATS system that limits how many keys can be programmed. Try to program them again, but if it still only holds 3, you may have to take it to the dealer to have them access the PATS system and make sure it's set up to allow more keys.
