VEHICLE SECURITY ALARM
The vehicle security alarm monitors the vehicle doors for
unauthorized entry and the ignition switch for unauthorized
operation. While the vehicle security alarm is armed, interior
switches for door locks and liftgate release are disabled. If
something triggers the alarm, the vehicle security alarm will
provide the following audible and visible signals: the horn
will pulse, the park lamps and/or turn signals will flash, and
the vehicle security light on the instrument panel will flash.
To Arm The System
1. Remove the key from the ignition switch and get out of

or the Remote Keyless Entry key fob and close all doors.
3. The horn will sound and the vehicle security light in the
instrument cluster will switch on for approximately three
seconds. This shows that the vehicle security alarm is
arming. During this period, if a door is opened, the ignition
switch is turned to ON/RUN, or the power door locks are
unlocked in any manner, the vehicle security alarm will
automatically disarm. After approximately three seconds,
the vehicle security light will flash. This shows that the
vehicle security alarm is fully armed.
The activation of the vehicle security alarm is followed by
a self-diagnosis stage. If a fault is detected during the
self-diagnosis stage, the horn will sound a second time.
If the horn sounds a second time, check that all doors, hood
and liftgate are closed correctly, then rearm the system.
If the vehicle security alarm sounds the horn a second time
even when all doors, hood and liftgate are correctly closed,
a fault has occurred in the operation of the system. Contact
an authorized dealer.

alarm will arm unexpectedly. If you remain in the vehicle and
lock the doors with the key fob, once the vehicle security alarm
is armed, when you pull the door handle to exit, the alarm will
sound. If this occurs, push the unlock button on the key fob to
disarm the vehicle security alarm.
