Like a fading Hollywood starlet, the Charger simply held on a little too long as it trudged through the emissions stranglehold of the 1970s. It returned as a downsized, four-banger between 1982 and 1987. The Charger did have a glimmer of success in 1987, when the Shelby Charger GLH-S carried a 175-horsepower, four-cylinder engine that sprinted it to 60 mph in seven seconds. The Charger's return in 2006 injected power back into the model with its optional Hemi engine.
Arming the Alarm
Turn the engine off and remove the key, if applicable. Exit the vehicle and close all four doors. Press and release the "Lock" button on the key fob, and the alarm will arm in 16 seconds. If you open a door during the time between pushing the "Lock" button and the 16-second arming period, this will cancel the arming sequence and you will have to repeat the arming process from the beginning.
