Does anyone happen to know the location of the module that control/configures/stores the personal option settings? I was playing with all the buttons when I first bought her, and I went through all the options via the DTC. I randomly pressed the options button yesterday and it displayed Options Unavailable. All the user configurable settings function (approach lights, auto lock and unlock, 30 sec headlight delay) however I am no longer able to scroll through the list. I can only assume when I replaced the dash a few weeks ago I must have missed reconnecting a plug to a module. Having unplugged and removed more than I care to remember, it is very possible I missed one and would be interested in knowing where to start looking. I skimmed through section 10 in the shop manuals, but could not find relevant information on specifically where the module is located. Anyone have any ideas?

Read page 3-76 of the owners manual and see if this is the problem first.

In another post, you recently stated you programmed a new fob. It may have programmed as fob 3 or 4, if two were programmed prior to you receiving the car. If that is the case, see the statement in red from the owners manual.

DIC Vehicle Personalization
Your vehicle is equipped with personalization capabilities
that allows you to program certain features to a
preferred setting for up to two drivers. The back of the
keyless access transmitters are labelled 1 or 2.
The current driver’s preferences are recalled when one
of the following occurs:

The lock or unlock button on the keyless access
transmitter, programmed as 1 or 2, is pressed.

The appropriate memory button, 1 or 2, located on
the driver’s seat is pressed. See
Memory Seat,
Mirrors and Steering Wheel on page 2-54
for more
information.

A valid keyless access transmitter is detected upon
opening the driver’s door.
If more than one valid keyless access transmitter is
detected upon opening the driver’s door, the driver
preferences for the lowest driver number will be recalled.
If a keyless access transmitter is programmed
as #3 or #4, the personalization system will not recognize
the transmitter. The Driver Information Center (DIC) will
not display a current driver number and the features that
are normally programmed through the DIC will be set to
the default states.
Also, if the OPTIONS button is pressed, the DIC does not
display the menus used to set personalizations, but
instead displays OPTIONS UNAVAILABLE for a few
seconds.

Could you possibly repost this?

Hi Bruce,

I wanted to open and print this for possible future reference, but cannot get it to open? Any chance you could repost this information?

Thanks,

Charles

Dash Replacement

Steve,

If you would have looked through the entire thread, you would have seen in post #10, I listed the rest of the modules.



I see a list of the first 10 are, but what are the other ones for??
