    If you have done this mod or have other accessories that are powered on with the key off you might want to buy something like this:

    Battery Protector

    I plan on getting one since I have the always on mod and a bed light that is powered with the key off. The battery protector I linked to above is the best I have found. You can also find these at places that sell stuff for RVs.

    Nice Marvin! Added to the TOC. That'll be good for people with dogs, or putting stuff back there you don't want to slide around!

    Anyone know the sequence used to program your keyless entry....so that it unlocks all doors on the first press of the button ? Instead of the second press of the button.

    thanks...

    I assume you mean 2008? Seems like there's a way. Maybe I'll see if I can find it.

    Yes....thanks. 2008 model.

    I found a sequence where you can do it for earlier models. I tried it on my '08 and couldn't get it to work. But that tells me either (A) I did it wrong or (B) I need a difference sequence for the '08 model.

    The tip for shutting off the seat belt chime was the greatest thing that's happened since buying the truck !!

    thanks again - - - - -

    I would love to have this on my truck. I'm constantly in and out of my truck at job sites and I usually leave my keys in the truck. So it's a pain when I go to the passenger side door and it's locked!

    What happens if you mess up a step? Will it screw something up or just go back to original?

    Yeah, I've got about 5 inches on the truck now. It would be an excuse to get out and clean it off......maybe tomorrow!

    It's 73 degrees, 90% humidity, and it is not raining. Welcome to New Orleans. I'll be wearing shorts this weekend and still be sweating.

    OK, I tried this two times and it did not work. Although, I think I killed my second transmitter - it does not work now.

    I will not be playing around with these goofy sequences again!

    That's pretty much the same type of hokey pokey recipe that I found for changing the program on the seatbelt chime. And it worked great !! Perfect.

    It was a long drawn out formula. And it took me 3 or 4 tries before I got it right. I actually took my laptop out to the truck so I could read the dang sequence. Problem is you only have a few seconds to process a few of the steps. That plus I'm old which makes it where I can't remember the sequence once I read the next one !! ha

    But it worked great on the seatbelt chime. The chime still rings but only initially and then it let's it go and leaves it up to you if you want to buckle up or not. Which I do.....it's just that I don't want a constant annoying chime over and over and over and over...ding, ding, ding, ding. I'm like....remind me once and let it go. And that's what the magic formula did.

    I read there's a formula for the "all four doors open same time" key contoller.

    I'll give this one a try and report back.

    over 'n out - - - -

    Yea...no kidding. Why don't they make the truck the way the customer wants it in the first place ??? Like how much would it cost to have the auto down power window also do auto up ?? I have other cars that do that. BUT...only on the drivers window. I guess it would cost an extra 4 dollars to have it do that. I'd pay it. I mean whats an extra 4 bucks after spending 30 thousand and change ?? Go figer.

    If I want the key-in chime off I turn the key to ON, turn off the fan, lights and radio (if I don't want music). The chime stops after a few seconds that way.
