    In step #44, my "Vehicle" button is grayed out and is not an option for me to select it. Does anyone know why this is? I'd like to unlock both doors in my Access Cab for my wife and I.

    I think it needs to be running and in park or parking brake on.

    Anybody know if it is possible to keep volume levels consistent for different audio sources? Each source, XM, FM, AM, Bluetooth, etc remembers the volume you last had it on so when switching between sources the volume changes as well.

    Is there a way to make the radar distance pop up stop coming up while driving? Set my cruise control and ever time it detects a new car it pops the car length indicator up. Very obnoxious, I just want to set it once and then see my speedo.

    Don't know if you can disable the alerts while maintaining the function but if you press and hold the cruise control button you can use it as a regular cruise control without the radar.

    Here's a tip I learned from experience. While camping in my rooftop tent, I got up in the middle of the night to take a whiz. I decided to have a smoke before going back to bed. My cigs were in the cab. I grabbed the door handle and it auto-unlocked. My key fob was in one of the pockets in my tent. That's when it hit me that anyone could do it and steal all my stuff or even start the truck and give me a wild ride. Moral of the story: Disable your key fob when sleeping near the truck.
