I'm not familiar with "lock out mode"? Assuming you have the factory security system, on the '04 X it was pretty simple... no chipped, immobilizer security. :confused:

If the alarm sounds when the door is opened, insert the key & cycle it 3 times... lock to on (within 5 seconds), the alarm will stop & you can start the engine. :wink:

I'm assuming you can now start the engine.

If they were able to reset the system by disconnecting the battery, then my guess is that the security system glitched. By disconnecting the battery & reconnecting it, the vehicle electronics was reset.

Assuming you have the keyless entry + the security system. The keyless entry was standard, but the security system was optional in the '04 model year.

Something to keep in mind... if you have the security system.
If you get out, lock your doors with the electric lock & close the door, you just armed the security system! When you open the door with the key, the security system alarm will sound.
