Most of it is plug and play. Even though according to the instructions there is no option 7 in bank 2, there actually is. You can just find it by scrolling through with the brake pedal. So now I have no annoying honk, 1 press to start, 15 min run time, and I can get in and go without the stupid thing turning off. Success, thanks to the internet :)
Thanks for posting!

Do you know how far down the line the programming button is from the antennae?

I know where the line runs but I don't want to start pulling things off without knowing how far to look.
