To Disarm The System

To disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm, you will need to press the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter, or turn the ignition switch to the ON/RUN position. If something has triggered the Vehicle Security Alarm in your absence, the horn will sound three times and the exterior lights blink three times when you unlock the doors. Check the vehicle for tampering.

The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your vehicle; however, you can create conditions where the Vehicle Security Alarm will arm unexpectedly. If you remain in the vehicle and lock the doors with the RKE transmitter, once the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed (after 16 seconds), when you pull the door handle to exit, the alarm will sound. If this occurs, press the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter to disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm. You may also accidentally disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm by unlocking the driver’s door with the key and then locking it. The door will be locked but the Vehicle Security Alarm will not arm.

NOTE:
• Unlocking the doors with the manual door lock plungers or the driver’s door lock cylinder will not disarm the Vehicle Security Alarm.

• When the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed, the interior power door lock switches will not unlock the doors.
