Chevrolet Silverado: Vehicle Security / Vehicle Alarm System

Chevrolet Silverado 2019-2024 Owners Manual / Keys, Doors, and Windows / Vehicle Security / Vehicle Alarm System

The indicator light, on the instrument panel near the windshield, indicates the status of the system.

Off : Alarm system is disarmed.

On Solid : Vehicle is secured during the delay to arm the system.

Fast Flash : Vehicle is unsecured. A door or the hood is open.

Slow Flash : Alarm system is armed.

Arming the Alarm System

  1. Turn off the vehicle.
  2. Lock the vehicle in one of two ways:
    • Use the RKE transmitter.
    • With a door open, press on the interior of the door.
  3.  After 30 seconds, the alarm system will arm and the indicator light will begin to slowly flash. Pressing on the RKE transmitter a second time will bypass the 30-second delay and immediately arm the alarm system.

The vehicle alarm system will not arm if the doors are locked with the key.

If the driver door is opened without first unlocking with the RKE transmitter, the horn will chirp and the lights will flash to indicate pre-alarm. If the vehicle is not started, or the door is not unlocked by pressing on the RKE transmitter during the 10-second pre-alarm, the alarm will be activated.

The alarm will also be activated if a passenger door or the hood is opened without first disarming the system. When the alarm is activated, the turn signals flash and the horn sounds for about 30 seconds. The alarm system will then re-arm to monitor for the next unauthorized event.

Disarming the Alarm System

To disarm the alarm system or turn off the alarm if it has been activated:

  • Press on the RKE transmitter.
  • Start the vehicle.

To avoid setting off the alarm by mistake:

  • Lock the vehicle after all occupants have exited.
  • Always unlock a door with the RKE transmitter.

Unlocking the driver door with the key will not disarm the system or turn off the alarm.

How to Detect a Tamper Condition

If is pressed on the RKE transmitter and the horn chirps three times, an alarm occurred previously while the alarm system was armed.

If the alarm has been activated, a message will appear on the DIC.
