How do I set the security alarm?

The security alarm is a key safety feature that helps keep your car from being stolen. When someone enters your car without a key or the remote transmitter, the security alarm will activate, and the horn will honk and the lights will flash. The security alarm will be automatically set any time that the key is not in the ignition, all of the doors are closed, and the doors have been locked with the key or remote transmitter.
