Summary

If you have an input sensor, such as a pin-switch, installed on doors. By default, the controller has an option called  “Door-Open Warning”, which alerts if you power the ignition (turn ACC on) while the door is open. To disengage, turn the ignition off and press “Unlock” on your remote. If you want to turn off the “Door-Open Warning” setting, refer to the function table in your manual (setting #6).

Things to consider

  • Do not let 10 seconds elapse between each step or else your controller will exit the “Function Changing” mode.
  • Make sure that you press the valet button firmly or else the controller will not recognize the signal.
  • Refer to the Function Table in your manual as a reference to which function you’re changing and what indicates each setting.
  • A siren is needed to know if the steps work. It is possible to change the functions without it but is highly not recommended.
  • ACC – Most OEMs will connect the Pro-E yellow wire to the ignition. When a user switches the Ignition to ACC, 12v power is sent through the yellow wire to start the function changing session. If your yellow wire was not connected, you will need to have a 12v DC source as this will need to be powered as part of the process.

Steps for turning off the “Door-Open Warning”

  1. Turn the ignition to ACC (power the yellow wire with 12 VDC).
  2. Firmly press the valet button 7 times within 10 seconds. After 10 seconds you’ll hear the siren chirp.
  3. Turn the ignition off (depower the yellow wire). You’ll notice that your valet button is slowly flashing.
  4. Now, firmly press the valet button 6 times. You’ll hear the siren chirp for every press.
  5. Turn ACC on (power yellow wire again). The siren will chirp to confirm that the function value has been changed. One chirp means that the “Door-Open Warning” is ON and 2 chirps mean it’s OFF.
  6. Turn ACC off (depower yellow wire).
