Q8: I have the Skylink model G5K Keyless Entry System, how can I change the access PIN?

Enter [*].

Enter new 4-digit PIN

Enter [*].

Enter new 4-digit PIN again.

Enter [*].
You have only 1-second pause time between each key is pressed. Therefore, each key should be pressed immediately followed by the next key. A pause more than 1 second during this process will cause a failure in changing the PIN, therefore you have to start over again.

For example, if you are changing the PIN from 0000 to 1234, you should enter the following sequence, 0000, *, 1234, *, 1234, *. If confirmed, the backlit LED flashes and the unit emits a long beep. If you don’t hear a long beep with the backlit flashing, that means the PIN has not been changed. Please try again.
