DISARMING

Passive disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked using the key to unlock the driver side front door. Active disarming of the VTSS occurs when the vehicle is unlocked by depressing the Unlock button of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter. Refer to Remote Keyless Entry System in the Remote Keyless Entry System section of Group 8P - Power Lock Systems for more information on the RKE system components. Once the alarm has been activated (horn sounding and exterior lamps flashing), either disarming method will also deactivate the alarm.

Depressing the Panic button on the RKE transmitter will also disarm the VTSS, but the horn will sound and the exterior lamps will flash for about three minutes as part of the Panic feature function. Refer to Power Lock System in the Power Lock System section of Group 8P - Power Lock Systems for more information on the Panic feature

If you see a key with a slash thru it on the dash then you key or SKIM module is bad. You will need a scantool to determine which one is bad, also you will need a scantool to program the key or SKIM..

If you need anymore assistance feel free to reply and don't forget the RATING before leaving the site!!

Have a great day,
