How do you activate panic mode?
Your car’s remote is quite literally the key to a lot of different functions. You can use it to lock or unlock the doors, open the trunk and more. You can also use it if you’re feeling threatened. The panic button on the remote allows you to activate your car’s security system. It will then flash its lights and honk the horn to alert others around. Here’s how to do it:
Press the panic button on the remote.
Hold it for at least one second.
The horn will sound for 30 seconds.
The lights will flash for 30 seconds.
To cancel panic mode, press any other button on the remote, or use the key to turn the ignition to on.
