The 2020 Corvette is certainly eye-catching, but that means it might catch the eye of would-be thieves as well. Luckily, the new mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette comes equipped with an alarm from the factory, and if it’s triggered, it’ll notify the owner with a series of horn chirps.
If the 2020 Corvette’s alarm system has detected a “Tamper Condition,” the horn will chirp three times after the owner presses the unlock button on the key fob remote. In addition to chirping the horn, the alarm system will also flash the lights three times, and a message will display on the Driver Information Center (DIC) in the instrument panel.
The 2020 Corvette comes equipped from the factory with an alarm system, which is activated after the vehicle is locked using the remote key, the Keyless Access system, or by pressing the lock button on the door panel with the door open. The system can be disarmed or turned off by pressing the appropriate button on the remote key, using the Keyless Access system, or by starting the vehicle.
Previously, we covered the 2020 Corvette key fob and what each of its related buttons do. The fob comes with six buttons total, including a button for remotely starting the engine, unlocking and locking the doors, opening the front trunk, and opening the rear hatch. There’s also a button on the key fob that will remotely activate the alarm system, as well as the vehicle’s horn and lights.
As we’ve seen in the past, the 2020 Corvette is far from impervious when it comes to malicious actors. Back in January, thieves in Michigan managed to run off with a set of brand-new C8 wheels.
Luckily, we’ll have more information on the 2020 Corvette’s alarm system in the near future, so stay tuned. In the meantime, make sure to subscribe to GM Authority for more mid-engine Corvette news, Corvette C8 news, Corvette news, Chevrolet news, and 24/7 GM news coverage.
