How do I use the panic feature?

The panic feature is an important safety feature in your vehicle. When the panic feature is activated, the horn will sound, and the hazards will flash for 30 seconds, which draws attention to your vehicle if you feel unsafe. To turn on the panic feature, press the Panic button on the key, and hold it for more than 1.5 seconds. Turn off the feature by pressing any button on the key.
