THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE STARTING YOUR VEHICLE
Security Alarm System (optional)
This system monitors the vehicle doors, liftgate and ignition for unauthorized operation. When the alarm is activated, the system provides both audible and visual signals. The horn will sound repeatedly for 3 minutes and the headlights and security light in the instrument cluster will flash for an additional 15 minutes. The engine will not run until the system is disarmed.
The alarm will set when you use the power door locks, turn the key in the door lock cylinder, or use the Keyless Entry transmitter to lock the doors. After all the doors are locked and closed the SECURITY light in the instrument cluster will flash rapidly to signal that the system is arming. The security light in the instrument panel cluster will flash rapidly for about 15 seconds to indicate that the alarm is being set. After the alarm is set , the security light will flash at a slower rate to indicate that the system is armed.
NOTE: If the SECURITY light stays on continuously during vehicle operation, have the system checked by your dealer.
Use the Keyless Entry transmitter or the key to turn the door locks to the unlock position. If something has triggered the system in your absence, the horn will sound three times when you unlock the doors. Check the vehicle for tampering.
The Security Alarm System is designed to protect your vehicle; however, you can create conditions where the system will arm unexpectedly. If you remain in the vehicle and lock the doors with the transmitter, the alarm will sound when you pull the door handle to exit. You may also accidentally disarm the system by unlocking any door with the door key and then locking it. The door will be locked but the Security Alarm will not arm.
