Vehicle Security Alarm — If Equipped

The Vehicle Security Alarm monitors the doors and trunk for unauthorized entry and ignition switch for unauthorized operation. While the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed, interior switches for door locks and decklid release are disabled.

If something triggers the alarm, the Vehicle Security Alarm will signal for about 18 minutes. For the first three minutes, the horn will sound intermittently, the headlights will turn on, the park lamps and/or turn signals will flash and the Vehicle Security Light in the cluster will flash. Then the exterior lights will flash for another 15 minutes.
