    • Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
    • The batter terminal is disconnected and then reconnected
    • The system control is disconnected and then reconnected.
    • Abnormal impact is detected when the impact sensor function is on.

    • Turn the ignition key from "LOCK" to "ON" position.
    • Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch

    If the turn signal lights flash 3 times, the system has been alarmed. Check to see if there is any abnormality with your vehicle.

    If any of the doors is not opened within 30 seconds, all doors will be automatically locked and the system will be set.

    When the system is set

    Activating the system; When the system detects abnormalities such as follows, it flashes the turn signal lights and turns on the interior light or the turn lights only (depending on the model) and sounds the security horn and vehicle horn of 30 seconds.

    • Unlocking any door without using wireless control
    • Any door or hood is forcibly opened.
    • The battery terminal is disconnected and then reconnected.

    Once set, the system automatically resets the alarm after the alarm stops.

    The alarm will activate again under the same circumstances described in "Activating the system".

    • Turn the ignition key from the "LOCK" to "ON" position.
    • Unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch.

    The system can be cancelled by these ways at the same time.

    If the battery becomes discharged due to the vehicle being unused, for a long time etc., when the battery is recharged or replaced, the system will activate the alarm. If this happens, immediately unlock any of the doors by pushing the unlock (cancel) switch, and the alarm will stop.

    How do I turn my alarm on the saturn vue


    If you have a factory installed alarm the original factory key can activate the alarm by pressing the lock button twice(rapidly). The lock symbol is generally a symbol of a "locked" lock.
    If there is no buttons on the car key or it is an aftermarket alarm, a key fab (a little alarm remote control with 2-4 buttons the size of a keychain) is needed to activate/deactivate the alarm.
