I asked my dealer to program my old spare key onto my new sled which he did.
Then asked him to program Cody's spare key for my sled as well and he said that it would wipe out Cody's code. That it could only be programmed for one sled at a time.
Then through the long hot summer as I'm reading an old issue of Snowtech to try to hang onto my sanity, they state the opposite.
You can program one key to work for several sleds. The dealer does need both the sled and key to program it.
Not sure if that answers your question though, as I'm not too sure it's the key gets programmed or the sled. It makes sense that it would be the sled and the key has the resistor in it that the sled senses and recognizes to be a ligitimate key.
