Theft-Deterrent Systems
Vehicle theft is big business, expecially in some cities.
Although your vehicle has a number of theft-deterrent
features, we know that nothing we put on it can make it
impossible to steal. However, there are ways you
can help.
Theft-Deterrent System
Your vehicle is equipped with a theft-deterrent alarm
system.
With this system, the
SECURITY light will flash
as you open the door if your
ignition is off. This light
reminds you to arm the
theft-deterent system.
Arming the System
Use one of the two following items listed here to arm
the system:
Press the lock button on the remote keyless entry
transmitter.
Open the door. The SECURITY light should flash.
Lock the door with the power door lock switch.
The SECURITY light will stop flashing and stay on.
Close the door. The security light should go off.
Now, if a door or the hatch/trunk lid is opened without
the key or the remote keyless entry transmitter, the
alarm will go off. Your horn will sound for two minutes,
then it will go off to save battery power. And, your
vehicle will not start.
The theft-deterrent system will not arm if you lock the
driver’s door with a key, the manual door lock, or if you
use the power door lock after the doors are closed.
If your passenger stays in the vehicle when you leave
with the keys, have the passenger lock the vehicle after
the doors are closed. This way the alarm will not arm,
and your passenger will not set it off.
