Life’s emergencies come in all shapes and sizes. OnStar can help

Not all emergencies are created equal. But no matter how big or small the problem, OnStar can be there to help. So, before you ask, “What can I do with OnStar?”, here are five ways OnStar and our specially trained Advisors can help save your day.

1. Locked Out

The doors are shut, the windows are up, your keys are lying on your front seat, and you have somewhere to be in 15 minutes. But don’t worry — every day, OnStar helps more than 1,600 drivers get their keys back after locking them inside their vehicle. If you find yourself locked out of your vehicle, simply call 1.888.4ONSTAR (1.888.466.7827) and an Advisor can unlock your doors*28 (if properly equipped). You can also use your vehicle’s mobile app*26 to remotely unlock your vehicle.

2. Vehicle Trouble

If you find yourself stranded due to a flat tire or empty gas tank, or just need assistance, OnStar can help. Just push your blue OnStar button for Roadside Assistance*17 and an Advisor can connect with a local service provider, so you can get back on your way quickly and safely.

3. Protect Your Ride

OnStar Stolen Vehicle Assistance*18 provides layers of protection to help deter thieves and recover your vehicle if it’s ever stolen. You can be notified when your vehicle’s alarm is triggered with Theft Alarm Notification.*19 Once a police report has been made, OnStar can provide your stolen vehicle’s location to police. Remote Ignition Block™ can remotely block your ignition to prevent a thief from restarting your vehicle once it’s off, and Stolen Vehicle Slowdown allows an Advisor to send a signal to slow your vehicle once police confirm it’s appropriate to do so.

4. Find Your Way

Life goes in a lot of directions, but Turn-by-Turn Navigation*20 can help you get where you’re going. Just push your blue OnStar button and ask an Advisor for directions — they can download directions right to your vehicle and a voice will call out every turn. The Advisor can also access a database of more than 14 million points of interest, and even navigate you to locations when you don’t have an address.

5. Medical Emergency

When the unexpected happens, an Emergency Medical Dispatch–certified OnStar Advisor*64 is ready to help. Our specially trained Advisors can provide critical assistance and contact the appropriate emergency response,*16 all with the push of a button. It doesn’t matter if it’s you, a passenger or another driver who needs help — OnStar can help.
