riven1234,

 

Here is the procedure for programming the autolocks. I hope this helps you.

 

NOTE: The autolock feature can be activated/deactivated independently of the auto-unlock feature.

NOTE: Prior to beginning this procedure, make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed, the ignition is in the OFF position, and all the vehicle doors, liftgate and liftgate glass are closed.

1. Close all the doors, the liftgate and the liftgate glass.

2. Confirm that the ignition is in the OFF position.

 

NOTE: Steps 3 through 7 must be carried out within 30 seconds.

3. Turn the ignition from OFF to ON.

4. Press the door lock control switch UNLOCK button 3 times.

5. Turn the ignition from ON to OFF.

6. Press the door lock control switch UNLOCK button 3 times.

7. Turn the ignition from OFF to ON. The horn will chirp once to indicate the system is in the enable/disable mode.

8. Press the door lock control switch UNLOCK button once, then the LOCK button once to toggle the autolock feature ON/OFF. The horn will chirp once to indicate autolock is disabled. If the horn chirps twice (one short and one long chirp), the autolock feature has been enabled.

9. Turn the ignition to the OFF position to exit the enable/disable mode. The horn will chirp once to indicate the procedure is complete.

 

Autolock Programming Using the Keyless Entry Keypad Procedure (If Equipped)

1. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.

2. Close all the doors, the liftgate and the liftgate glass.

3. Enter the 5-digit permanent entry code on the keyless entry keypad.

4. Within 5 seconds of entering the code, press and hold the 3/4 button on the keypad. 5. While holding the 3/4 button, press the 7/8 button.

6. Release the 7/8 button, then release the 3/4 button. The horn will chirp once to indicate autolock is disabled. If the horn chirps twice (chirp followed by a honk), the autolock feature has been enabled.
