The chime that sounds to notify the driver that the key is still in the ignition when the door is open may fail to sound when the door is opened ten minutes or longer after leaving the key in. This could increase risk of vehicle theft.

The airbag warning light could illuminate or the driver's front airbag may not deploy as designed.
