How does the vehicle security system work?

When the vehicle security system is armed, it will activate if a door is unlocked in any way other than with a standard key, Intelligent Key, request switch, or key fob. When the system is activated, the horn will honk and the lights will flash for roughly 50 seconds, or until the system is turned off. If, after the 50 seconds, the vehicle is again tampered with, the system will activate again.
