We’ve all been there before. You park in front of the store and go inside to do your shopping. After you check out, you exit the store, only to find that you’ve forgotten where you parked. Your car has a handy finder feature that can help here. This is what you need to know:

  1. Press the Lock button on the remote twice (make sure you do it quickly – you only have three seconds).

  2. Listen for the horn to beep.

  3. Watch for the lights to flash.

Tip

Use the car finder feature to locate your vehicle rather than setting off the panic alarm.
