Security System

Immobilizer System

The immobilizer system prevents a key that has not been pre-registered from 
starting the power system. Each key contains electronic transmitters that use 
electronic signals to verify the key.

Pay attention to the following when pressing the 

POWER

 button:

Do not allow objects that emit strong radio waves near the 

POWER

 button.

Make sure the key is not covered by or touching a metal object.

Do not bring a key from another vehicle’s immobilizer system near the 

POWER

 

button.

Do not put the key near magnetic items. Electronic devices, such as televisions 
and audio systems emit strong magnetic fields. Note that even a key chain can 
become magnetic.

Immobilizer System

NOTICE

Leaving the key in the vehicle can result in theft or 
accidental movement of the vehicle. 
Always take the key with you whenever you leave the 
vehicle unattended.

Do not alter the system or add other devices to it.
Doing so may damage the system and make your 
vehicle inoperable.

Security System Alarm

The security system alarm activates when the trunk, hood or doors are forcibly 
opened. The alarm does not activate if the trunk or doors are opened with the key, 
remote transmitter or keyless access system.
However, the alarm activates if a door is opened with the key and then the hood is 
opened before the power mode is set to ON.

When the security system alarm activates

The horn sounds intermittently and some exterior lights flash.

To deactivate the security system alarm

Unlock the vehicle using the key, remote transmitter or keyless access system, or set 
the power mode to ON. The system, along with the horn and flashing lights, is 
deactivated.

Setting the security system alarm

The security system alarm automatically sets when the following conditions have 
been met:

The power mode is set to VEHICLE OFF (LOCK).

The hood is closed.

All doors and the trunk are locked from outside with the key, remote transmitter 
or keyless access system.

When the security system alarm sets

The security system alarm indicator in the instrument panel blinks and the blinking 
interval changes after about 15 seconds.

To cancel the security system alarm

The security system alarm is canceled when the vehicle is unlocked using the remote 
transmitter or keyless access system, or when the power mode is set to ON. The 
security system alarm indicator goes off at the same time.

1

Security System Alarm

Do not alter the system or add other devices to it.
Doing so may damage the system and make your 
vehicle inoperable.

The security system alarm continues for a maximum 
of two minutes until the security system alarm 
deactivates.

Do not set the security system alarm when someone 
is in the vehicle or a window is open. The system can 
accidentally activate when:

Unlocking the door with the lock tab.

Opening the trunk with the trunk opener or the 
emergency trunk opener.

Opening the hood with the hood release.

If the 12-volt battery goes dead after you have set the 
security system alarm, the security alarm may go off 
once the 12-volt battery is recharged or replaced.
If this occurs, deactivate the security system alarm by 
unlocking a door using the key, remote transmitter, 
or keyless access system.

warning function cancels.

If the keyless remote is taken out of the vehicle after

the power system. Always make sure if the remote is
