How do you program a new personal entry code into the keyless entry system?

If your car is equipped with the keyless entry keypad, it came with a default access code. This five-digit code lets you work the locks from the keypad. However, you can also change it to something else if you prefer. Here’s how to do that:

  1. Enter the default code with the keypad.

  2. Press the 1 and 2 buttons within five seconds of entering your default code.

  3. Watch/listen for the doors to lock and unlock once.

  4. Enter the code you want to use.

  5. Press the 1 and 2 button. This will assign the code to Driver 1. Make sure the locks cycle.

  6. Repeat the process again to add other personal codes for Driver 2 and Driver 3.

Tips

  • You can have up to 3 personal access codes.

  • Avoid using any numbers in sequence when programming your code (12345, for instance).

  • You cannot delete the default access code, so it can always be used (if a personal code is forgotten).
