Your remote (with both the electronic key system and the mechanical key) allows you to do many different things, including locking and unlocking the doors. However, it also lets you set off the panic alarm. This can be a handy safety feature if you’re feeling threatened or if you notice someone scoping out the vehicle (a potential thief). Here’s what you need to know:

  • Press the alarm button for more than one second.

  • The car’s alarm will sound and the lights will flash.

  • This will go on for about a minute and then stop.

  • You can cancel the panic alarm at any time by pushing any button while the alarm is active.
