Arming the system

Arming the system  - Perimeter alarm system - Locks and Security - Lincoln MKZ Owners Manual - Lincoln MKZ

When armed, this system will respond if unauthorized entry is attempted. When unauthorized entry occurs, the system will flash the turn signal lamps and will sound the horn.

The system is ready to arm whenever the key is in the 1(off) position, or is removed from the ignition. Either of the following actions will prearm the alarm system:

Press the entry transmitter portion of your control on the remote entry transmitter portion of your Integrated Keyhead Transmitter.

When you press the lock control twice within three seconds on the remote entry transmitter portion of your IKT, the horn will chirp once to let you know that all doors, the hood and the trunk are closed. If any of these are not closed, the horn will chirp twice to warn you that a door, the hood or the trunk is still open.

 Press the driver or passenger

Press the driver or passenger interior door lock control while the door is open, then close the door.

 Press the 7  8 and 9  0

Press the 7 8 and 9 0 controls on the keyless entry pad at the same time to lock the doors (drivers door must be closed).

There is a 20 second countdown when any of the above actions occur before the vehicle becomes armed.

Each door, the hood or the trunk is armed individually, and if any are open, they must be closed for the system to enter the 20 second countdown.

The turn signal lamps will flash once when all doors, the hood and the trunk are closed indicating the vehicle is locked and entering the 20 second countdown.
