Re: Alarm went off

I had a similar situation last summer except it was the left rear door which was acting up. If I touched the rear door before the front, the alarm would go off. Then, if I locked the doors with the button on the door, the fob, or the handle button, the rear left door would not lock. I had to manually lock the door every time I locked the car... and of course I was on a road trip.

Took it to the dealer when I got back and they said there was a short with the handle/lock. Got it fixed and no problems since.

I appreciate the responses on this, thank you. I just tested my doors to be sure they all lock and unlock. I guess it is possible that the panic button is activated in my pocket. I didn't realize you could drive with an activated panic button. It does make sense. Thanks again for the help.

No problem, my neighbors probably thought I was nuts driving up and down the street with the alarm blaring until I figured out what was going on...

Owners Manual suggests triggering both an alarm and a panic so you can hear the
difference in horn pattern between the two--in advance.

If an intrusion alarm, you need to exit, close all doors, remove any keys, etc. as it would only sound horn for 3 minutes unless there is still a door open or ignition, then it will go for 15 long embarassing minutes.
The inside door lock and liftgate should be disabled if alarm.

Alarm can be disabled by using fob to unlock car, or by having a good fob and opening a door from the outside--but not by actual key or liftgate button.

Panic should last 3 minutes and can be turned off by panic button in close proximity or driving above 15mph.
