SECURITY ALARM SYSTEM — IF EQUIPPED
The system monitors the doors, liftgate, and ignition
switch for unauthorized operation.
If something triggers the alarm, the system will signal for
about 18 minutes. For the first three minutes the horn will
sound and the headlights, park lights, tail lights and the
indicator light in the cluster will flash. Then the exterior
lights will flash for another 15 minutes.
If the monitored system, which triggered the alarm is
deactivated the alarm will continue to sound until three
minutes of alarm time is reached. If the monitored
system, which triggered the alarm is deactivated after the
alarm has been on for three minutes the alarm will shut
To set the alarm:
1. Remove the keys from the ignition switch and get out
of the vehicle.
2. Lock the door using either the power door lock switch,
or the Keyless Entry Transmitter and close all doors.
3. The indicator light in the instrument cluster will flash
rapidly for 16 seconds. This shows that the system is
arming. During this period, if a door is opened, the
ignition switch is turned ON, or the power door locks are
unlocked by either the power door lock switch or the
remote keyless entry transmitter, the system will auto-
matically disarm. After 16 seconds the indicator light will
flash slowly. This shows that the system is fully armed.
