Shift to “P” then push and hold the door “lock” button on the drivers door for 5 sec.
Your done, again drive the car to make sure both setting are working.
Note the shift into “P” step, probably the car is already in “P” if the setting doesn’t work then try shift out of “P” than back into “P”.
Hope you successful.
Thanks Osukuko. On the surface it all seems quite easy but there are many
variables at play here.
As you noted, for the operation quoted above, the car is already in 'P'. And you are asked to place the car in 'P'. Does that mean you can just leave it there and hold down the 'lock' button, or do you have to shift out of 'P' and then put it into 'P'. They are not clear on this.
Also they say to 'Push the engine start button once (you must do the next step with in 10 sec.)'. Does this mean that for each function you want to program, you must shut off the engine and start it up again?
I'll have another shot at it tomorrow, but so far after several attempts I haven't had any success at all with it.
BTW, your above suggestion is the reverse of what I want.
When I'm in the car I want the locks to remain open ANY time I use the shift.
Even when I'm travelling 15 mph or higher, I still want to control the doors myself, and not have the car do it.
The only time I want the CAR to lock the doors is when I'm leaving the vehicle and hit the button on the door or use the key remote.
