Question about 2006 Pontiac Vibe

1 Answer

The battery in my 2006 pontiac vibe went dead. I recharged it; however, the setting for the door locks changed. It now unlocks automatically when I turn the car off instead of when I put the car in park. I need to know how to reset it.

The 2006 Vibe no longer has that feature. It was discontinued after 2005. I have the 2005 so I know how to change it. If your 2006 is able to change then here are the directions from my 2005.
Programmable Automatic
Door Locks
If you have an automatic transaxle, your vehicle is equipped with an auto door lock/unlock feature which enables you to program your power door locks.
Your vehicle left the factory programmed to Mode 4.
The following is a list of the available programming options:
Mode 1: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. There is no automatic door unlocking.
Mode 2: No automatic door locking or unlocking.
Mode 3: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. All doors and liftgate unlock when the shift lever is moved to PARK (P) with the ignition on.
Mode 4: All doors and liftgate lock when the shift lever is moved out of PARK (P) with the ignition on and all doors and liftgate closed. All doors and liftgate unlock when the ignition switch is turned from ON to ACC or to LOCK.
To change the mode you are in, do the following:
1. Set the interior lamp control dial to the door position.
See Interior Lamps Control on page 3-16.
2. Move the shift lever into PARK (P) and close all doors and liftgate.
3. Turn the ignition to ON.
4. Within five seconds after the ignition is turned to ON, press and hold the power door lock switch in
the lock position for about five seconds.
5. The interior lamp will flash to indicate that the mode has been changed. For example, if the lamp flashes once, the function has been changed to Mode 1.
If the battery is disconnected or run down, the mode is changed to the initial mode which is Mode 4.

    I just tried this on my 2006 Equinox, and it did not work, but i messed around with it for a while and learned the way to do it on my vehicle:

    Turn the key to the ON position
    Hold the UNLOCK Button for about 5 seconds
    The horn Will beep either once or twice.

    It seems that One horn beep means that the doors will lock when shifted out of park and unlock when shifted into park. Two horn beeps means that it will lock when shifted out of park but will not unlock when shifted into park. Hope this helps.

How do i reset power door settings 2006 pontiac vibe


While I have not had this problem with my 2006 Pontiac Vibe, I had the same problem you describe on my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Unfortunately, the solution is to replace the module in the door panel. I was able to purchase the part at a much lower price on ebay than a dealership, about 1/4th the price. However I had a professional mechanic do the replacement because removing a door panel can be tricky to do without damaging it.

Pontiac Vibe is locked with no battery. How to unlock doors? Key doesn't work the locks.


I had the same problem yesterday. I removed the battery (that was near dead) to take to get tested, but I had locked the doors and closed the hood before leaving. When I got back with the new battery the key fob wouldn't work, and the key would not manually open the doors. I ended up having a mechanic friend reach up under the front of the car to manually release the hood (it took him about 20 minutes to figure it out), replaced the battery, and then the key fob worked again. I'm not sure why the keys wouldn't work in the door - any ideas there?

1999 Sonata lock code changed


the remote programming may have been erased-with the doors locking automatically it is a feature that should be able to be changed-you will have to check the owners manual on how to change that feature
as far as the remote-you will have to contact a hyundai dealer about reprogramming the remote-it may also just need a battery

How do I reprogram the 2004 Pontiac Vibe key fob?


To begin programming, follow the procedure.
  1. Set the following conditions: • Ignition off and ignition key out of cylinder. • All doors closed except drivers door. • Drivers door is unlocked.
  2. Insert and remove the key from the ignition switch twice within 5 seconds.
  3. After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the key into the ignition key cylinder and remove it.
  4. After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the key into the ignition key cylinder and close the door.
  5. Turn the ignition switch from LOCK to ON and back to LOCK at approximately 1 second interval 1to5 times to select desired mode. • 1 time for add mode • 2 times for rewrite mode • 3 times for confirmation mode • 5 times for prohibition mode
  6. Remove the ignition key from the key cylinder.
  7. After selecting a mode, the integration relay automatically performs the power door LOCK to UNLOCK operation within 3 seconds to inform the selected mode. • In the confirmation mode, when the operation is performed twice, it directs that 2 types of recognition codes have been registered. • In the confirmation mode, if the number of the registration code is 0 the LOCK to UNLOCK operation is automatically performed 5 times. • If the prohibition mode or confirmation mode is selected, registration procedure is completed. • If the add or rewrite mode has been selected, the doors will lock-unlock once or twice at 1 second intervals, once for add mode or twice for rewrite mode. • If the confirmation mode is selected, the doors will lock-unlock 0 to 2 times at 2 second intervals to inform the technician of the number of transmitters programmed. • If the prohibition mode is selected, the doors will lock-unlock 0 to 5 times at 1 second intervals.
  8. Registering new recognition codes for the add mode or rewrite mode. • Within 40 seconds after the add mode or the rewrite mode has been selected, press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously for 1.0 to 1.5 seconds. Within 3 seconds after the previous operation, press either one of the buttons for more than 1.0 seconds. • Within 3 seconds after the transmitter has been turned off, the LOCK and UNLOCK operation will be automatically performed once if the registration of the recognition code of the transmitter is completed correctly. In case the LOCK and UNLOCK operation is performed twice, the registration of recognition code has failed. Perform the registration procedure from the beginning once again.
  9. Press a transmitter button for 2 seconds. The doors will lock-unlock once at a 1 second interval to inform the technician that the signal has been received from the transmitter. • If the doors lock-unlock once, the transmitter programming has been completed. Go to step 8 to continue programming for additional transmitters. • If the doors lock-unlock twice, the transmitter programming is not complete. Go to step 8 to begin the transmitter programming again.
If any of the following conditions occur during programming, the remote control door lock receiver will return to normal operation:
