The factory Passlock anti-theft system cannot be disabled entirely when using your remote to Lock/Unlock as the system is keyed into the remote system. However, you can have your system sort of disabled by simply not using the remote; manually use the doorlock switches to Lock and key to Unlock. This should allow the Passlock system to stay disabled as you're not remotely enabling/disabling Passlock while simultaneously locking/unlocking the doors. If you understand this then you can pick the days when you're expecting problems and leave the anti-theft system off while choosing when and where to use it when temps rise or parking with a sunny view to keep the interior warm. This should be a good alternative work around.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
