Perform the following steps to deactivate the audible signal. You can also use the same steps to restore the function.

1. Sit in the driver’s seat and shut all doors and the rear gate.

2. Hold down the REAR (UNLOCK) side


2. Hold down the REAR (UNLOCK) side of the power door locking switch.

3. While holding down the REAR (UNLOCK) side of the power door locking switch, pull the key out and re-insert it into the ignition switch at least 6 times within 10 seconds after Step 2.

4. Open and close the driver’s door once within 10 seconds after Step 3.
