  1. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to on.

  2. Press the Unlock button three times.

  3. Turn the ignition off.

  4. Press the Unlock button three more times.

  5. Turn the ignition back to on.

  6. The horn should beep once. This tells you that you’re now in programming mode.

  7. Press the Unlock button, then press Lock again. The horn will beep once to tell you that Auto Lock was deactivated. It will beep twice if you’re reactivating the system.

  8. Turn the ignition back to off and listen for the horn to beep one time confirming that the programming was accepted.
