    Here is a list of the programmable features that our cars have if not equipped with the EVIC.

    All this stuff is in the users manual but I figured I would post them here as a lot of people don't read all of the manual because its so big.


    Non Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) - Customer Programmable Features

    Remote Key Unlock, Driver Door/All Doors First:
    1. Press and hold the LOCK button on a programmed
    transmitter for at least four seconds, but not longer than
    ten seconds. Then, press and hold the UNLOCK button
    while still holding the LOCK button.
    2. Release both buttons at the same time.
    3. Test the feature while outside of the vehicle, by
    pressing the LOCK/UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter
    with the ignition in the LOCK position, and the key
    removed.

    Flash Lights with Lock:
    1. Press and hold the UNLOCK button on a programmed
    transmitter for at least four seconds, but not longer than
    ten seconds. Then, press and hold the LOCK button
    while still holding the UNLOCK button.
    2. Release both buttons at the same time.
    3. Test the feature while outside of the vehicle, by
    pressing the LOCK/UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter
    with the ignition in the LOCK position, and the key
    removed.

    Sound Horn with Lock:
    1. Press the LOCK button on a programmed transmitter
    for at least four seconds, but not longer than ten seconds.
    Then, press the PANIC button while still holding the
    LOCK button.
    2. Release both buttons at the same time.
    3. Test the feature while outside of the vehicle, by
    pressing the LOCK button on the transmitter with the
    ignition in the LOCK position, and the key removed.

    Express Down Windows Feature:
    press and release the UNLOCK button on the transmitter and then
    immediately press and hold the UNLOCK button until
    the windows lower to the level desired or until they
    lower completely.

    Automatic Unlock Doors On Exit:
    1. Close all doors and place the key in the ignition.
    2. Cycle the ignition switch between LOCK and ON and
    then back to LOCK four times ending up in the LOCK
    position.
    3. Depress the power door unlock switch to unlock the
    doors.
    4. Repeat these steps if you want to return this feature to
    its previous setting.

    Disable BeltAlert (Seat Belt Chimes):
    NOTE: The following steps must occur within the first
    60 seconds of the ignition switch being turned to the ON
    or START position. DaimlerChrysler does not recommend
    deactivating Beltalert.
    1. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position and
    buckle the driver’s seat belt.
    2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position and wait
    for the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn off.
    3. Within 60 seconds of turning the ignition switch to the
    ON position, unbuckle and then re-buckle the driver’s
    seat belt at least three times within 10 seconds, ending
    with the seat belt buckled.
    NOTE: Watch for the Seat Belt Warning Light to turn on
    while unbuckling and off while re-buckling the seat belt.
    It may be necessary to retract the seat belt partially each
    time when unbuckling.
    4. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position. A
    single chime will sound to signify that you have successfully
    completed the programming.

    NOTE: Your dealer can set many other features for you that are unaccessible through manual user programming.

    Also note: Repeating one of the above procedures will turn the feature on from off, or off from on.

    is there a way to tell which ones are? other than doing it, obviously

    and is it a teachable feature?

    The only down side to moving from the Caliber to my Avenger is EVIC is gone. This has been SO HELPFUL getting my locks working the way I want them again, thank you!
