How do I adjust the security relock timer?

For security purposes, your car will relock if you unlock it but never open the door. For instance, if you unlock your vehicle with the keyless remote and then change your mind and go back inside without remembering to lock the vehicle, the doors will relock, and the security system will arm itself again. The time that the vehicle waits before relocking can be adjusted with a few easy steps: 1. Turn the ignition to On, while making sure the vehicle is completely stopped. 2. Press the Menu button. 3. Use the +/- buttons to highlight Customize Settings, then press Source. 4. Use the +/- buttons to highlight Door Setup, then press Source. 5. Use the +/- buttons to highlight Security Relock Timer, then press Source. 6. Use the +/- buttons to choose between 90sec, 60sec, and 30sec, then press Source.
