The interior alarm can sound in a variety of ways to alert you when something is not correct. If the alarm sounds a single time, and has a flashing yellow key indicator, then the battery in the electronic key is running low, and will soon die. If this is the case, replace the battery as soon as possible, or the electronic key may stop working.
