    Thanks,

    I could only assume they use the same navigation unit in the US models but honestly I have no knowledge of the STS vehicles built overseas.

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    I thought I recalled reading somewhere that this only disabled speed sensor for 60 seconds? I have a 2007 STS and with this installed, after pressing the mute button 4 times I am good to go until I turn the car off next time?

    thanks

    Many times it will stay engaged until you press the mute button 4x again so in some cases when you start the vehicle again it still might be engaged. For vehicles without the mute button or the 2005-2006 models they come with a switch which is either on or off.

    My wife didn't like her Lockpick sometimes being on when starting her car. It works great but I don't need it. Any interest?

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    Hey Tomm, I purchased a lock pick from you about 2 weeks ago and installed it this past weekend. It was for an 06 STS with Mute button. It works just fine except for a few glitches I have the manuel switch yet still have to push the mute button 4 times for it to work. But my main problem is my GPS is not functioning now. I watched the install video where it said it would come back after 10 mins but mine never did, please advise.

    You have the wrong Dip settings.. Read the first page of this thread. The video shows installation in a 2007+ and you followed the dip settings in the video not the settings for the 2005-2006 units. The first page of this thread explains all the settings.

    To change the settings the lockpick needs to be disconnected before changing the settings and then re-connect and all will work fine.

    Silly question, do forum members get a discount on the lockpick?

    I believe the 'discount' comes in the form of knowledge that it even exists.

    Coastal spends more time on the beach than near a phone. You may never get any response. They do ship product occasionally.

    Good Luck!

    Re: Official STS Lockpick Thread

    So I get a reply from coastal today about the lockpick fast shipping request I made on Monday, I wanted the product to arrive today. They offered to accomidate me but I declined seeing that I had ordered it from another dealer, received and installed it myself yesterday. My god their customer service skills are in need of serious work.

    Anyway the product is in and seems to be working fine.

    If you think there sales inquiries are slow you should contact them for service. Most of those calls will go unreturned. In any case I believe you purchased it from our site which would explain why you received it so quickly. Glad its installed and working good. 07's - 09's can be hit or miss, Most of the time they work well and there are no issues and sometimes the unmodified units refuse to work in some of them.

    2006 Lockpick

    tomm:

    I received the Lockpick yesterday and installed it today. So far, after 2 hours, the GPS won't come back online.

    Sometimes the movie will stop playing when I turn the Lockpick off (when in Drive), other times, it continues to just play.

    I double checked the dip switches, all set to up. 2006 STS.

    Any ideas? Thanks.
