Should be in the owners manual Here's what your looking for. To program your own code: 1.. Enter factory set code (keypad will illuminate when pressed). 2. Press 1/2 control within five seconds of step 1. 3. Enter your personal 5 digit code. Enter each digit within five seconds of previous one. 4. After the code is entered, the locks will cycle, confirming that the new code has been set.

This didn't work for me - although I followed it to the letter. Any other ideas?
