In the theft and security section of the Owner's Manual there are 5 pages of operating guidelines.

There is apparently no "panic" function to allow you to use the horn from xxx feet away. The system is set so that the horn will sound and the lights flash for 30 seconds when the car is locked with a fob or the lock switch, and there are other functions which enable during a theft attempt).

The manual gives the procedure for checking this function.

As always, when all else fails, read the instructions.........:sneaky:

I've wondered that myself. I can only guess that it is so you can get out of the car, lock it, and still have access to your fuel door if you forgot to press the button on the dash before you got out. That and Cadillac was probably thinking that since the cars were geared more toward older, more well-to-do buyers, that the cars shouldn't be in an area where you would need the panic feature.

they should have doen somthing like if you hold the lock button down for a surten amount of time it will go into panic or somting it has a horn already that beeps when you lock it if you choose it to beep so its not like they would have to add a sirent to it
