View Full Version : Factory Alarm Question

12-04-2004, 06:18 AM
Ok... On most vehicles when the alarm is engaged and you open the door(if window is down or something) the alarm will go off, but mine doesn't. Is there a reason?
Is there a way that I can set it to fo off when the door is opened or the door handle is pulled?
Just wondering.
Thanks in advance.

We don't really have a factory alarm, it's a theft deterrent called passlock 2 whcih keeps the car from starting. So as the GA is stock, that behavior is not possible without adding an alarm. Don't remember off the top of my head if a factory alarm is an option or not but that can easily be done with aftermarket equip

I'm dumbfounded by GM not including even a basic alarm with the GA or GAGT. I believe every car should come with one standard. For the price of what these cars are going for new they should be included. So basically we have a keyless entry only. You only find out that you don't have an alarm till your stereo gets ripped off! Que pena!

Yeah, they put that great 'panic alarm' on there but can't give us a factory alarm. :rolleyes:
