Keyless Remote Reminder  
When the keyless remote is within the system’s  
operational range, and all the doors are closed, the  
warning function cancels.  
When the power mode is set to any mode  
other than OFF and you remove the keyless  
remote from the vehicle and shut the door, an  
alarm will sound. If the alarm continues to  
sound, place the keyless remote in another  
location.  
If the keyless remote is taken out of the vehicle after  
the power system has been started, you can no  
longer change the power mode or restart the power  
system. Always make sure if the keyless remote is in  
your vehicle when you operate the POWER button.  
When the power mode is in ACCESSORY  
The alarm will sound from outside the vehicle.  
Removing the keyless remote from the vehicle  
through a window does not activate the warning  
buzzer.  
When the power mode is in ON  
An alarm will sound both inside and outside the  
vehicle. In addition, a warning indicator will  
appear on the instrument panel.  
Do not put the keyless remote on the dashboard or in  
the glove box. It may cause the warning buzzer to go  
off. Under some other conditions that can prevent  
the vehicle from locating the keyless remote, the  
warning buzzer may also go off even if the keyless  
remote is within the system’s operational range.
