How do you erase a personal code from the Securicode® system?

While you can program your own codes for the Securicode® system on your car, you may find that you need to erase one or more. Maybe you’ve hit your limit, or maybe you need to bar someone from accessing the car. Whatever the case, erasing a code is easy. Here’s what you should do:

  1. Enter your factory code.

  2. Press the 1 and 2.

  3. Press the 1 and 2 again for two seconds.

Tip

Note that this erases ALL of your personal security codes. You cannot erase only one code.
