5. Press and release the “ ” button on the transmitter that you want to program.

6. The system will flash the side marker lights, tail lights and front position lights and honk the horn one time, indicating that the system has learned the transmitter. Upon successful programming, the remote start confirmation transmitter button will flash one time.
