Changing personal settings on my 08 powerwagon

Hi everybody
I'm the proud new owner of a slightly used 08 powerwagon and I'm having trouble figuring out how to change the personal settings on it. The manual that came with the truck is for the diesel version and mine is slightly different. I don't have a menu button in the EVIC and therefore I think that is the OTIS. anyway I would like to turn off the honking everytime I lock the doors and so on and I can't figure out how to get to these settings. I've been searching for some time now an came up empty. Any help would be appreciated.

Stephen

PS. My truck is an 08 with power everything and heated leather and command start that was a stock option.

Welcome to the forum....

I am not sure you have the right manual for POWER WAGON as there is no diesel version of it.....

Anyway it sounds like you are talking about the remote control for door lock/engine....I never use mine and don't have manual with me so no help from me.....

What country/state are you in?

I didn't get the correct manual with the truck, hence the question. I'm in Britsh Columbia, Canada.

To disable the horn chirp on lock do this.

1. Get in, close all doors, and put on seatbelt (the last to avoid any chimes that might confuse you)

2. Place key in ignition and turn to ON (not start)

3. Press and hold LOCK button for at least four seconds and then press and hold down the UNLOCK button.

4. After hearing a single chime release both buttons.

5. Turn key to OFF

6. Test the horn chirp by pressing the lock button

Should be good to go. If you ever want to re-enable the horn chirp, perform the same steps again.

Thanks for the help guys, I downloaded the manual and I was trying to do as per the instructions for about a half hour with no luck, I'm pretty sure the neighbors didn't like my horn going off every time I released the panic button. I'll try that method listed by IDgregory tomorrow and see if that works. I don't have any pics yet but its still pretty much stock. I'm thinking of adding a new bumper (bullet proof) and maybe some rims at some point. That reminds me of my second question. I have an 03 GMC duramax with 16 inch 8 bolt american racing mojave teflon rims, will they fit on the Powerwagon?

Sorry, the 16's won't fit. Too small, as they would hit the brake calipers. You need 17's or bigger.
By the way, welcome to the forum.

is bullet proof a brand or a type

apparently there are guys who squeezed 16's on their rams, assuming they have the same brakes I suppose you could make them fit with enough grinding but I wouldn't recommend it. It's tough to beat the Power Wagon wheels anyway and grinding material off your calipers is just a bad idea if you ask me

try www.bulletproofbumpers.ca there are all brands there. they are a pretty small company and I haven't seen any of their bumpers on a powerwagon yet, but I'm sure they could make it happen.

Oh, by the way, you must take it to the dealer to get the door-lock honking turned off even though the manual gives you the instructions, it will not let you disable it.

I gave up on trying to disable the honk on lock after attempting it no less that 50 times, so I go over to the dealer in town and ask them if they can do it.... well they say the can book me in a week from now to get it done and it should take less than a half an hour. I did not make the appointment.

I don't know why people are so against the lock beep. If I can lock my truck at 3am and not wake anybody else up there's nothing to worry about it's such a quick beep it's no big deal. Unless your under the truck :yo: still not sure how I keep leaning on that god forsaken button. But anyway I prefer having it on, it's conformation it's locked and I don't have to be able to see it to know
