SECURITY ALARM SYSTEM
The system monitors the doors, rear liftgate/decklid,
hood, and ignition for unauthorized operation. The se-
curity alarm system is automatically armed or disarmed
with the remote control or any of your vehicle’s keys by
locking or unlocking the vehicle.
The antitheft alarm is armed within approximately 10
seconds after locking the vehicle. A blinking light in the
tow away alarm switch indicates that the alarm is armed.
Once the alarm system has been armed, the exterior
vehicle lights will flash and an alarm will sound when a
door, the rear liftgate/decklid, the hood, or glove com-
partment is opened, or if someone attempts to raise the
vehicle for towing. The alarm will flash the exterior
lamps for approximately three minutes and sound an
audible alarm for 30 seconds. The alarm will stay on even
if the activating element is immediately closed.
The tow-away alarm switch is located on the console. To
deactivate for towing or jacking up the vehicle, press and
release the upper portion of the switch. Press and release
the upper portion to activate it again.
After the alarm system has been armed, the exterior
vehicle lights will flash and an alarm will sound when
someone attempts to raise the vehicle. The alarm will
flash the exterior lamps for approximately three minutes
and sound an audible alarm for 30 seconds. The alarm
will stay on even if the vehicle is immediately lowered.
To cancel the alarm, insert the key into the ignition switch
or press a transmit button on the key fob.
To prevent triggering the tow-away alarm feature when
parking on a surface subject to movement (such as a
ferry), switch off the tow-away alarm. To do so, turn the
key in the ignition switch to the OFF/LOCK or ACC
position, or remove the key from the ignition switch.
Press the tow-away alarm switch and the indicator light
will illuminate briefly. Exit the vehicle, and lock the
vehicle with the key or the remote control.
