    RTFM.... sorry, don't have the instructions, but it's in your owners manual. It involves taking out a fuse, having the door open or shut or something. Check for programmable options.

    There's quite a few things you can program.

    If you simply can't find it in the owners manual, come back and I'll check out mine for ya.

    Mine has the factory setting - I don't use the remote, just press the lock button on my door, close it, activates - and parking lamps only.

    Luckily I had this printed out. Unfortunatly, I didnt have a scanner, so I had to type it all, or else i would have had it sooner for you.


    ENTERING PROGRAMMING MODE
    To program features, the car must be in programming mods.

    1) Turn key to RUN position.
    2) Turn key to OFF position.
    3) Remove the RADIO fuse in the main fuse panel.
    5) Turn the key to ACC

    You should hear a chime to verify that the system is in the programming mode.
    1 chime means you can program Exit Lighting, Delayed Illumination, Last Door Closed Locking and Lock Out.
    2 chimes and your car is equipped with Content Theft-Deterrent System means you can also program Remote Keyless Entry Verification, Arming Method, Arming Verification, Driver's Door Delay and Shock Sensor Enable.

    EXIT LIGHTING & ILLUMINATION
    With exit lighting, your interior lamps will come on for up to 25 sec. when the key is removed.
    With Delay Illumination, your interior lamps will come on and stay on for up to 25 sec. when entering the car and up to 5 sec. when leaving the car.
    To change the factory setting...
    1) Turn the courtesy lamps on by turning the instrument panel brightness control knob all the way up.
    2) Count the number of chimes you hear. The number of chimes tells you which mode you are in.
    3) Turn the courtesy lamp switch off.
    4) Turn the switch on and off until you hear the number of chimes that correspond to the mode you want to be in.

    MODE 1 Both Off.
    MODE 2 Delayed Illumination Only.
    MODE 3 Exit Lighting Only.
    MODE 4 Both On.

    LAST DOOR LOCKING & LOCKOUT PREVENTION
    To change the setting...
    1) Press the LOCK switch on the door.
    2) Count the number of chimes you hear. The number of chimes tells you which mode you are in.
    3) Press the LOCK switch on the door until you hear the number of chimes for the mode you want to be in.

    MODE 1 Both Off (Door will lock and unlock when you press the door lock switch)
    MODE 2 Lockout Prevention Only (If you leave your keys in the ign. and leave thru the driver's door, you won't be able to lock the doors with the power door lock switch.)
    MODE 3 Last Door Closed Only. (If the power door lock switch is used to lock the car while any door is open, you will hear 3 chimes. The doors will not lock until all the doors are closed.)
    MODE 4 Both On. (This combines Mode 2 and 3.)

    REMOTE KEYLESS ENTRY VERIFICATION
    To change this setting...
    1) Press the UNLOCK button on the remote transmitter.
    2) Count the number of chimes you hear. This tells you which mode you're in.
    3) Press the UNLOCK button on the remote until you hear the number of chimes that correspond to the mode you want.

    MODE 1 All Off. (The head lights will not flash and the horn will not sound)
    MODE 2 Horn and Lamps/Lamps (Your horn will sound and your parking lights will flash when you press the LOCK button on the transmitter. Only the parking lamps will flash when you press UNLOCK)
    MODE 3 Horn and Lamps (Your horn will sound and the parking lamps will flash every time you press LOCK or UNLOCK)
    MODE 4 Lamps (The parking lamps will flash when you press LOCK or UNLOCK)
    MODE 5 Lamps/Horn and Lamps (Lamps will flash on the first press on LOCK, your lamps will flash and the horn will sound on the second press on LOCK and the lamps will flash any time you press UNLOCK)

    MODE 1 All Off (No horn chirp or lamp flash)
    MODE 2 Horn and Lamps (Your lamps will flash and the horn will chirp twice)
    MODE 3 Horn and Lamps/Lamps (If you use the remote to arm the system, your lamps will flash and the horn will chirp twice to verify the system is armed. If it only chirps once, the hatch is open or unlatched. If you use either the power door lock switch or passive arming, only the lamps will flash for verification)

    THEFT DETERENT ARMING METHOD
    To change this setting...
    1) Press the UNLOCK switch on the door.
    2) Count the number of chimes
    3) Press the UNLOCK switch on the door until you are in the mode you want.

    Holy crap Matto, you're a helluva nice guy to type out all of that. I'd have probably copied it from another website. At least we have it on the site now. If there's a sticky FAQ coming, that would be cool info to have in it (even though that's not really a FAQ)

    I was really bored that day, what can i say. I tried finding it on some site somewhere else, but i couldnt find it. I know got it of this board before it went down and everything was lost. Thought tech would have it, but i couldnt find it there either, i dont think the search function there works very well though. It takes me forever to sort through the crap there to find what i need.
