System alarm operation

The alarm system will give the following alarms when triggered:

● The vehicles horn will sound and the turn signal lights will flash for 30 seconds.

● If any door (or the rear gate/trunk lid) remains open after the 30-second period, the horn will continue to sound for a maximum of 3 minutes. If the door (or the rear gate/trunk lid) is closed while the horn is sounding, the horn will stop sounding with a delay of up to 30 seconds.

The alarm is triggered by:

● Opening a door, the rear gate or trunk lid ● Physical impact to the vehicle, such as forced entry (only models with shock sensors (dealer option))

NOTE

The alarm system can be set to trigger illumination of map lights and dome light. The map lights and dome light notification is deactivated as the factory setting. Refer to Function settings F20. A SUBARU dealer can activate the system. Contact your SUBARU dealer for details.
