Default Can SKS unlock all doors?

I know you can unlock all the doors by pressing the button on the fob twice. But, can you program the SKS system to unlock all the doors when you touch the driver's door handle? I looked at the sheet that has all the programmable options and it looked like it was an option, but I'm not completely sure. My wife very much wants this setup.

By the way, the service manager at the dealership told me wife today that it wasn't possible. She was in for the first oil change.

Yes. Check the Owner's Manual. There is a sequence of button pressing on the Fob. I can't remember the sequence off hand. I have mine set to unlock all doors when I touch the driver's door handle.

Yes, it is possible. Your service manager doesn't know what he's talking about.

It's really simple, and is covered in a previous post here.

Basically, hold down the 'LOCK' button on the keyfob, then hold the 'ALARM' button until you hear the car beep. Repeat to cycle through the settings. There are three settings:

Driver Only (Default, if you grab the driver handle, only it unlocks, if you grab the passenger or rear hatch, it unlocks everything.)
All (Unlocks everything from any handle.)
Single Door (If you grab the driver, it only unlocks the driver; if you grab the rear hatch, it only unlocks the rear hatch; if you grab the passenger, it unlocks all.)

Thank you very much guys. I'll give it a shot.

I just got done checking everything over. They over-filled the oil. It's about a quarter inch above full. The tires, which they rotated, are all over the map. The bastards.

Looks like it's time to call our salesman and tell him how disappointed we are with the our first service visit. And schedule a visit to remove the extra oil.

Make em suck it out with a drinking straw! Then they might not overfill it again. Hrumph.

It's best to tell them that you only want 3.5 quarts of oil the next time it's changed. As far as the over-fill, 1/4" isn't going to hurt the ICE, but you will take a mileage hit of about 4 MPG (my experience).

I reprogrammed the SKS to open all doors and it works great! Thanks again for the instructions eHurtley!

I took the car for a quick drive and discovered another problem. Our steering wheel had been slightly misaligned to the right. Now, after they supposedly fixed it, it's way to the right. -sigh-

All in all they managed to mess up everything they touched. I won't even go into the grease spots that they left on the interior. It's too bad that the only other Toyota dealership is way over on the other end of the city. I'd like to give them a shot but it means an extra 30 minutes each way to get to them.

As bad as the one you visited sounds, it seems worth it to drive the extra half hour. (I go to a farther away dealer for that very reason.)

You were very close. In Wisconsin it's OR-eh-GAHN.

Knowing my wife, things will have to get pretty bad before she drives across town. Her time is more valuable than anything - mostly because she needs lots of time to take care of me.

I emailed our sales guy this morning and he got right back to me. He was pretty upset, especially that the guy goofed up on the SKS programming because he says they change that for lots of people. There going to give my wife a loaner so she can go do errands while they remove the oil and take another shot at the steering wheel alignment.

But, get this. The services manager had an excuse for the oil overfill. He said that there is some kind of "connecting baffle" or something, I can't remember the exact words, that seems to vary from Prius to Prius. So even though they ALWAYS put in exactly 3.9 quarts, some read high and some read low. That was a new one to me. Anyways, I said that I would like the extra removed anyhow so that it doesn't read over the full mark. He agreed, so I'm satisfied, but I think he's full of crap. They seem willing to go the extra mile to make things right, so we'll give them another chance.

Anybody ever heard of the mysterious (and apparently variable) connecting baffle?

Sssshhhh.... We're not allowed to talk about that.



(Well, I suppose I pronounce 'gone' as 'gahn' anyway.)
