    Unhappy Parking lights don't flash when I lock or unlock my car anymore.

    Alright guys, I feel pretty damn stupid asking this question. Well, here goes. When I first got my car (got it used). The parking lights and brake lights would flash on when I would lock or unlock my car. This was until one of my friends got ahold of my remote . The lights no longer flash, the car just locks or unlocks with the dome light coming on. I have tried the Buzzer Chirp feature (pressing unlock once, then pressing both lock and unlock at the same time) but it was to no avail. I only wake up or annoy my neighbors with the chirps from my horn. Now I don't know if there is a button combination that needs to be performed in order to activate this function or what. But I miss my flashing lights to tell me when the car is locked or unlocked.

    Regards,
    Corey

    Hmmm... Maybe this is the wrong forum for this? If a mod could move this post that would be great. Thanks!

    I would check some fuses. If that doesn't work I would take it to the dealer.

    Yeah, that's a good idea. I'll just take it over there tomorrow.

    if you have the upgraded alarm, it's likely in valet mode. this happened to me...took me about 3 months to figure out.

    Ok, I fixed it. I just didn't know that there was a "valet mode." For future reference all you have to do is open the driver's side door and press the unlock/dissarm button for a couple of seconds. The indicator light should blink a couple times, and then you're out of valet mode! Now I can watch my lights flash when I lock or unlock my car.
