Only drive up to 14mph ????

The repair manual has 5 pages of schematics on the power door locks. Nowhere that I can see, does it point to anything that times the door locks to MPH. The owners manual does say it will happen at 15 mph but doesn't say anything about disarming that feature. The locks are all controlled by the RKE (Remote Keyless Entry) module so that might have a lot to do with it but the diagrams don't show anything going into that module.

Good find....except that the instructions are only for the 06+ cruisers because before that, there is no "Vehicle Information Center".

Apparently my son was able to figure it out:

1. Turn ignition to run and off 3 times
2. Then press lock button on the door
3. Done
