2. Once the transmitter is separated, use a pencil
eraser to remove the old battery. Do not use a
metal object.
3. Remove and replace the battery as the instructions
under the cover indicate. Use a Duracell
battery,
type DL-2032, or a similar type.
4. Snap the transmitter back together tightly to be sure
no moisture can enter.
5. Test the operation of the transmitter with your
vehicle. If the transmitter does not work,
resynchronize the transmitter.
Resynchronization
After replacing the battery in your transmitter, or if only
the remote alarm works, the transmitter needs to be
resynchronized to the receiver. Do this by pressing and
holding both the lock and unlock buttons at the same
time for about eight seconds. You must be within range
of the vehicle.
Once the transmitter has been resynchronized, the horn
will chirp and the exterior lamps will ?ash once. The
system should now operate properly.
Doors and Locks
Door Locks
{CAUTION:
Unlocked doors can be dangerous.
? Passengers ? especially children ? can
easily open the doors and fall out of a
moving vehicle. When a door is locked, the
handle will not open it. You increase the
chance of being thrown out of the vehicle
in a crash if the doors are not locked. So,
wear safety belts properly and lock the
doors whenever you drive.
? Young children who get into unlocked
vehicles may be unable to get out. A child
can be overcome by extreme heat and can
suffer permanent injuries or even death
from heat stroke. Always lock your vehicle
whenever you leave it.
? Outsiders can easily enter through an
unlocked door when you slow down or
stop your vehicle. Locking your doors can
help prevent this from happening.
