Arming the System

To arm the system:

1. Open the door.

2. Lock the door with the transmitter. The security light should come on and stay on.

3. Close all doors. The security light should go off after about 30 seconds. The alarm is not armed until the security light goes off.

If a locked door or trunk is opened without using the key in the driver door key cylinder or the transmitter, a 10-second pre-alarm will occur.

The horn will chirp and the lights will flash. If the key is not placed in the ignition and turned to START or the door is not unlocked by pressing the unlock button on the transmitter during the 10-second pre-alarm, the alarm will go off. The headlamps will flash and the horn will sound for about 30 seconds, then will turn off to save the battery power.

The theft-deterrent system will not activate if the doors are locked with the key or the manual door lock.

It activates only if the power door lock switch is used while the door is open, or with the transmitter.

To avoid setting off the alarm by accident:

- Lock the vehicle with the door key after the doors are closed.

- Always unlock a door with the transmitter or by using the key in the driver door cylinder.

Unlocking a door any other way will set off the alarm.

Turn off the alarm by pressing the unlock button on the transmitter.
