You need to turn the switch on an off till the doors lock and unlock. Then press the lock button. This should program it to your truck.

read your owners manuel it tells you haow to do it. You turn the ing. from off to on like nine or ten times then hit the lock button on the keypad and your set. I think.

You need to turn the switch on and off pretty fast for it to work.
