Later I kicked the front bumper and again nothing happened. Where is the shock sensor located for this vehicle so that I can adjust its sensitivity.
For my vehicle, is the shock sensor number:
If so, I have photos of this sensor and the circuit board, showing where the potentiometer is for adjusting sensitivity. I just can't find the darn thing. I've looked under the passenger and driver seat, and under/behind the glove box and do not see it.
If the part number is different than above, can you give me a part number to look for a photo of the sensor?
The sensitivity of the alarm needs to be set by the dealer using the computer. Seeing that the dealer just installed it, take it to them and ask them to lower the number on the setting to make it more sensitive. From the factory they are set dead in the middle on number 5. But, be prepared, if you turn it too low, it will become a royal pain in the butt.
