Remove ignition key from ignition switch. Close all doors, engine hood and luggage compartment door (trunk lid). Use one of the following methods to lock vehicle:
Using key, lock left or right front door (all doors are locked through key-interlinked lock operation).

Lock all doors using remote key less entry system.

After doors are locked using one of these methods, anti-theft indicator on A/C control assembly will light continuously for about 30 seconds.

When system is set, doors cannot be locked or unlocked using door lock control switch, and luggage compartment door cannot be opened with luggage compartment door opener switch.

Canceling Anti-Theft System Setting (No Alarm)
When system is set (armed), but alarm is not sounding, use one of the following methods to cancel system setting:

Unlock left or right front door using key.

Unlock all doors using remote keyless entry system.

Insert key in ignition switch and turn to ON position (this is operative only when anti-theft system has not been triggered).
