Programmable Locking Feature
Following are the two locking modes that can be
Mode 1: All doors lock when the transmission is shifted
out of PARK (P).
Mode 2: All doors lock when the vehicle speed is greater
than 8 mph (13 km/h).
The automatic door locks were pre-programmed at the
factory to lock all the doors when the transmission
is shifted into gear. The following instructions detail how
to program your door locks differently than the factory
setting. Choose one of the two programming options
listed previously before entering the program mode.
To enter the program mode, do the following:
1. Begin with the ignition off. Then pull the turn
signal/multifunction lever toward you and hold
it there while you perform the next step.
2. Turn the key to RUN and LOCK twice. Then, with the
key in LOCK, release the turn signal/multifunction
lever. Once you do this, you will hear the lock switch
lock and unlock, the horn will chirp twice, and a
30-second program timer will begin.
3. You are now ready to program the automatic door
locks. Select one of the two programming options
listed previously, and press the lock side of
the power door lock switch to cycle through the
lock options. You will have 30 seconds to
begin programming. If you exceed the 30-second
limit, the locks will automatically lock and
unlock and the horn will chirp twice to indicate
that you have left the program mode. If this
occurs, repeat the procedure beginning with
Step 1 to re-enter the programming mode.
