If equipped

The security system helps to protect your vehicle and valuables from theft.

The horn sounds and a combination of headlights, parking lights, side marker lights and taillights flash if someone attempts to break into your vehicle or remove the audio unit.

This alarm continues for 2 minutes, then the system resets. To reset an activated system before the 2 minutes have elapsed, unlock the driver’s door with the key or use the remote transmitter.

The security system automatically sets 15 seconds after you lock the doors, hood, and the tailgate. For the system to activate, you must lock the doors and the tailgate fromthe outside with the key, driver’s lock tab, door lock master switch, or remote transmitter. The security system indicator on the instrument panel starts blinking immediately to show you the system is setting itself.

Once the security system is set,

Once the security system is set, opening any door without using the key or the remote transmitter, the hood, or the tailgate will cause the system to alarm.

The security system will not set if the hood, tailgate, or any of the doors are not fully closed. If the system will not set, check the doors and the tailgate. You can also check the open indicator on the instrument panel, to see if the doors and the tailgate are fully closed. Since it is not part of the monitor display, manually check the hood.

NOTE: Use the remote transmitter to quickly check that the hood, the tailgate, and all doors are closed.

Push the lock button twice within 5 seconds. There should be an audible confirmation beep.

Do not attempt to alter this system or add other devices to it.
