Security System
The security system helps to protect
your car and valuables from theft.
The horn sounds, the headlights pop
up, and all the exterior lights flash if
someone attempts to break into your
car or remove the radio. The system
alarms continue for two minutes
unless you turn it off manually. To
turn the system off, unlock either
door with the key.
The security system sets automati-
cally fifteen seconds after you lock
the doors, hood, rear window, roof
panel (NSX-T) and trunk. For the
system to activate, you must lock the
doors from the outside with the key,
lock tab, or door lock switch (see
page 69). The security system light
next to the driver's door lock starts
blinking immediately to show you
the system is setting itself.
Once the security system is set,
opening either door (without the
key), the hood, roof panel (NSX-T)
or the rear window will cause it to
alarm. It also alarms if the radio is
removed from the dashboard or the
wiring is cut.
With the system set, you can still
open the trunk with the master key
without triggering the alarm. The
alarm will sound if the trunk lock is
forced or smashed, or the trunk is
opened with the release button on
the driver's door.
The security system does not set if
the hood, rear window, trunk, roof
panel (NSX-T) or either door is not
latched completely. If the system will
not set, check the Door and Lamp
Monitor on the instrument panel
(see page 51), to see if the doors,
rear window, roof panel (NSX-T) and
trunk are fully closed. Since it is not
monitored, manually check the hood.
