PK3 key shows unknown driver?

It is possible that your vehicle has a problem with the Body Control Computer or if th battery has been replaced or run down recently ,memory could be lost.Here are the programming directions for these features.Please read carefully & then reset them in your vehicle.

DIC Vehicle Personalization

The DIC is used to program personal choices for up to two drivers. The drivers are recognized as DRIVER #1 and DRIVER #2. The DIC will identify a person as UNKNOWN DRIVER if they are neither DRIVER #1 nor DRIVER #2. You will let the DIC know which driver you are by using your remote keyless entry transmitter or by pressing one of the MEMORY buttons located on the driver's door. Each remote key less entry transmitter was pre-programmed to belong to DRIVER #1 or DRIVER #2. Each transmitter may be programmed differently for each driver.

After you press the unlock button on your transmitter with the ignition in RUN, the DIC will automatically display the identified driver number. The vehicle will recall the personal choice settings that were last made to correspond to your transmitter, including your radio and climate control settings. If you unlock the vehicle using your door key instead of your transmitter, the DIC will not change drivers and will recall the information from the last transmitter used or the last driver using one of the MEMORY buttons. If this happens and you were not the last driver of the vehicle, simply press your correct driver number on the appropriate MEMORY button or press the unlock button on your transmitter.

The DIC can be used to program the following personal choice features available with your vehicle:

Memory Seat Recall
Programmable Automatic Door locks.

    The selections you make for the personal choice features will be saved after the display reads FEATURE OPTION SELECTION DONE.
