Chrysler CHEROKEE SRT8OWNE Automobile User Manual

Vehicle Security Light (located in the instrument cluster)
will flash rapidly for about 16 seconds to signal that the
Vehicle Security Alarm is arming. During this 16 second
arming period, opening any door or the liftgate will
cancel the arming. If the Vehicle Security Alarm success-
fully arms, the Vehicle Security Light will flash at a
slower rate to indicate the alarm is set.
To Disarm the System
To disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm, you will need to
press the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter or
turn the ignition key to the ON position. If something has
triggered the Vehicle Security Alarm in your absence, the
horn will sound three times when you unlock the doors.
Check the vehicle for tampering.
The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your
vehicle; however, you can create conditions where the
Vehicle Security Alarm will arm unexpectedly. If you
remain in the vehicle and lock the doors with the RKE
transmitter, once the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed
(after 16 seconds), when you pull the door handle to exit,
the alarm will sound. If this occurs, press the UNLOCK
button on the RKE transmitter to disarm the Vehicle
Security Alarm. You may also accidentally disarm the
Vehicle Security Alarm by unlocking the driver’s door
with the key and then locking it. The door will be locked
but the Vehicle Security Alarm will not arm.
The interior lights come on when you open any door or
use the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter to un-
lock any door. They will remain on for approximately
30 seconds after all doors are closed then fade to off.
The lights also will fade to off if you turn on the ignition
after you close all the doors.
