How do you set the security system?
For cars equipped with a security system from the factory, setting and activating it is actually pretty simple. Here’s what you need to know:
Make sure that the ignition is off, and the key is out.
Get out of the car.
Make sure all the doors and the trunk are closed.
Lock the doors with the remote (or use the key to manually lock them).
Watch for the light to flash in the dash.
If you need to cancel the security system, just use the remote or the key to unlock the doors. You can also turn the ignition to the on position with the key (master or valet).
