To arm the system, you need to lock the door while the door is open, then close the door while holding up on the door handle.

To disarm the system you turn the key in a door or the hatch/trunk to the unlock position. It will not disarm with the ignition switch.

Found at most auto parts stores. European dash light bulb. Take the old bulb in with you to compare.

The bulb is also listed in the FSM

okey i just looked through the fsm section 15-111 and i can't find the bulb info anywhere, i'd searched on this a couple months ago and came up with nothing then.

as to the thread topic, i noticed in my receipts from the previous owner they took it to the dealer at one point in 91 because the security light would not go off. possibly why mine is burned out, maybe bad solder joints in security module???

1. It might be in the FAQ. If not, take it out and match it at the store.

2. From what I can tell it's linked to the following things...
- Hatchback Door Switch
- Door Switch
- Door Key Cylinder Switch
- Door Lock Link Switch
- Rear Hatch-Back Key Cylinder Switch
- Hood Switch
