Totaline Thermostat My thermostat is in the "LOCKED" mode and we have tried everything to get it unlocked.


Press and hold mode. While holding mode press program. This enters setup menu. Option 13 is security. You want 0 in option 13...no lock. If this doesn't work I need model number.

I have a T1700 in my apartment and my air want shut off and i see a lock symbol on it how do i shut it off


Do you mean a Venstar T1700 thermostat? If that is the case, the Lock symbol merely indicates that the keypad is locked to keep people from reprogramming the thermostat. This prevents anyone from quickly changing the target temperature or the swing temperature (the temperature at which the unit turns on) for the HVAC system. To unlock the keypad, press and hold the Mode button. Then press both the Up and Down arrows. Release all three buttons when the lock symbol disappears.

If the AC has cooled your apartment to a temperature below the target temperature for the current time period, then the control board of the HVAC may be damaged. (It isn't getting the message and has failed in the on position.) Contact an HVAC repair professional.

If the thermostat is indicating that the room hasn't reached the target temperature, then you should replace your thermostat. The thermistor has failed. (Contact Venstar if the thermostat is less than one year old.)

I hope this helps.

Locked out of thermostate


From the manual:



PROGRAMMABLE KEYPAD LOCK
To prevent tampering with any of your settings or
temperatures, the front panel buttons and the rotary dial can
be locked out, requiring a four digit code to unlock them.
You may use either the default lock code of "0000", or your
own personal number combination (see "Changing The Lock
Code")


LOCKING THE THERMOSTAT: Ensure the rotary dial is in the
RUN position. Press the NEXT button for at least 2 seconds.
The words "ENTER CODE" will appear on the screen, along
with "0000". Press the NEXT button again for at least 2
seconds. A padlock should appear on the screen to confirm
that the thermostat is now locked.


LOCKING THE THERMOSTAT: Ensure the rotary dial is in the
RUN position. Press the NEXT button for at least 2 seconds.
The words "ENTER CODE" will appear on the screen, along
with "0000". Press the NEXT button again for at least 2
seconds. A padlock should appear on the screen to confirm
that the thermostat is now locked.

UNLOCKING THE THERMOSTAT: Ensure the rotary dial is in
the RUN position. A single press of any button should cause
the words "ENTER CODE" to appear on the screen, along
with "0000". If the default code was used to lock the
thermostat, press the NEXT button for at least 2 seconds.
The padlock should disappear from the screen, and the
thermostat should now be unlocked.
If you try to unlock the thermostat by entering a code that is
not correct, a padlock and the digits "88:88" will flash on the
screen and you will have to try again. If a lock code
different from the default was used, this will need to be
entered by using the UP/DOWN buttons, and the NEXT
button to advance to the next digit. Once the correct code is
entered, press the NEXT button for at least 2 seconds and
the thermostat should now be unlocked.


CHANGING THE LOCK CODE: To create your own specific
lock code, first ensure that the rotary dial is in the RUN
position. Press the NEXT button for at least 2 seconds. The
words "ENTER CODE" will appear on the screen, along with
"0000". Now press the HOLD button again for at least 2
seconds. The words "SET CODE" will appear on the screen,
along with "0000".

IF YOU FORGOT YOUR LOCK CODE: You can still unlock the
thermostat by performing the following steps: On the back
of thermostat locate JP1, which is a row of 3 metal pins at
the right edge of the circuit board above the battery tray.
There should be a plastic jumper cap on 2 of the 3 pins
(right or left).


Move the jumper cap so that it is on the opposite 2 pins.
For this change to be recognized, move the Temperature
Mode switch to any other position than its current one.
These steps listed should have changed the lock code back
to the default of "0000". Follow the instructions already
listed in "UNLOCKING THE THERMOSTAT".

I used csorb's instructions to reprogram a master key for my 2000 Lexus RX300. The ignition works perfectly, but the doors don't lock or unlock.


Hi!!
I believe your alarm is in the PASSIVE MODE, here is how it works.

PASSIVE MODE Setting (Arming) Anti-Theft System The system will automatically set 30 seconds after following methods are performed: Remove ignition key from ignition switch. Exit vehicle, and close all doors. After performing this, anti-theft indicator on left side of instrument panel will light continuously for about 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, anti-theft indicator will blink once per second. When system is set, doors cannot be locked or unlocked using door lock control switch.
CANCELING THE ALARM AND REPROGRAMING MAY SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.
Canceling Anti-Theft System Setting (No Alarm) When system is set (armed), but alarm is not sounding, use one of following methods to cancel system setting:
  • Unlock left or right front door using key.
  • Unlock all doors using remote keyless entry system.
  • Insert key in ignition switch and turn to ON position (this is operative only when anti-theft system has not been triggered).
HERE IS HOW TO REPROGRAM THE ALARM IN CASE YOU NEED TO RESET IT.
PROGRAMMING
PASSIVE MODE NOTE:Initial mode is passive mode off. If there is a different signal in middle of programming, signal is invalid.
Programming Passive Mode Off
  • Remove ignition key from ignition key cylinder. Ensure all doors (including back door) and engine hood are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
  • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
  • Open driver door.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
  • Unlock driver door lock knob.
  • Close and open driver door 2 times.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be off.
Programming Passive Mode On
  • Remove ignition key from key cylinder. Ensure all doors, engine hood and luggage compartment door are closed and unlocked. Perform all of following methods within 30 seconds:
  • Lock or unlock any door with key or remote keyless entry system.
  • Open driver door.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob 3 times.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Perform all of following methods within 20 seconds:
  • Unlock driver door lock knob.
  • Close and open driver door 4 times.
  • Lock and unlock driver door lock knob.
  • After performing this, system should start force lock after 2 seconds. Passive mode should now be on.

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:

Hi, My totaline thermostat says EH on it and will only heat. No AC. any suggestions. Previously my AC repairman came out and added Freon into the unit. But did not fix it totally either.
