How to turn "Transport Mode" on or off.

Our trucks are shipped in "Transport Mode" which prevents the electronics from draining the battery while they wait in shipping yards and such. The dealer switches it off during PDI. If your were to store your truck or go overseas, it would be nice to have that feature activated. The good news is, you don't have to see the dealer. You can do it yourself anytime. Here's how:

Start the engine.
Turn the 4 way flashers on.
Press and hold the brake pedal.
Turn the ignition key to start and hold it there for 10 seconds.
The DIC will display the confirmation shown below.

To switch back to normal mode, simply repeat the above procedure and the DIC will confirm again. Give it a try.

I meant to answer your post days ago. I tested the truck in transport mode to see what did and did not work. You are right that the alarm does not set which might make this feature useless for many. There is also no exit lighting on the headlights. Everything else works including keyless entry and remote start.
