Yes, if you are going to let the dealer reprogram it. Then again, after you replace it, try it to see if it will start. Watch the Security light (with the key in the "Run" position) to see if it is blinking. If it is blinking and won't start, you may be able to reprogram it yourself by using the 10 minute procedure that was described in the previous questions. Its worth a try and could save you a lot of money.
