What happens when the vehicle security system is activated?
If your vehicle security system was armed correctly, it should activate when someone attempts to break in through a door, a window or the trunk. Here’s what should happen:
The headlights will flash.
The horn will honk.
After about 50 seconds, the alarm system will automatically stop. However, if someone attempts to gain entrance again, it will turn back on.
