While the MyKey® system on your car can provide enhanced safety and peace of mind, it may be necessary to clear it eventually. After all, the point is to teach younger drivers responsible habits. Once they’ve learned, you should clear the system. Here’s how to do that:

  1. Crank the car with a normal key (not a MyKey).

  2. Press the Setup button.

  3. Choose the option that says “Press Reset to clear MyKey.”

  4. Press the Reset button and then let go of it.

  5. You should now see a message that reads, “Hold Reset to confirm clear.”

  6. Hold the Reset button.

  7. After two seconds, you should see another message that says, “All MyKeys cleared.”
