Customer Question
Hi Pete. The light switch...
Hi Pete. The light switch trick will stop the chimes for a few trips but it began chiming again.
However, the remote start function would not work after the chimes stopped.
A friend suggested disconnecting the battery then reconnect and go through the setups again, I may try that too.
Thanks again
