The security system alarm will activate when someone opens the vehicle without having a key or a remote transmitter. When the security system is activated, the horn will honk and the lights will flash. To deactivate the system, use a key or remote transmitter to unlock the car. This will immediately shut down the security system. Tip If you don’t deactivate the security alarm, the system will automatically deactivate after two minutes.
