Using The Panic Alarm

NOTE: The PANIC and Security Alarms are quite different. Please take a moment to activate the PANIC and the Security modes to hear the differences in the horn. In case one should go off in the future, you will need to know which mode has been activated in order to deactivate it.

To turn the PANIC Alarm feature ON or OFF, press and hold the PANIC button on the RKE transmitter for at least one second and release. When the PANIC Alarm is on, the headlights and turn signal lights will flash, the horn will pulse on and off, and the illuminated entry system will turn on.

The PANIC Alarm will stay on for three minutes unless you turn it off by pressing the PANIC button a second time or if the vehicle speed is 5 mph (8 km/h) or greater.

During the PANIC Mode, the door locks and Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) system will function normally.

PANIC mode will not disarm the Security System on vehicles so equipped.

NOTE: You may need to be close to the vehicle when using the RKE transmitter to turn off the PANIC Alarm due to the radio frequency noises emitted by the system.
