Description should be in the owners manual..... But here is some info..."First . enter the factory set code, within five seconds press the 1/ 2 button on the keypad. Then enter your personal 5-digit code. (each number must be entered within five seconds of each other) Then press either the 1/ 2, 3/ 4 or 5/ 6 to indicate which of the three personal entry code positions you wish to use. The doors will again lock then unlock to confirm that your personal key code has been programmed to the module. Also. do not set a code that uses five of the same number. Do not use five numbers in sequential order. The factory set code will work even if you have set your own personal code. If you program a code to a position that already contains a set code, the previously-set code will be erased." HTH's


And don't forget to keep your key in your pocket, you just never know if something weird might happen.
