Ok All here it goes... I have had minor problems with the alarm as well... After some minor screwing around the following was determined...

1) The alarms going off/arming early with a door still open... This on is semi-hard to follow, but bear-with me... Notice when you disarm your alarm that the open door light on the dash lights up??? The alarm is wired to turn on the light inside the car when you arm it... The alarm is ALSO wired to turn on the inside light when you first kill the ignition (after driving), this causes that same light to light up, EVEN before you open your door... Arming the alarm too soon cuts this part of the alarm off and in the fraction of a second that it takes the "door open" to register to the alarm the alarm as already armed itslef and now sees an open door...
This is Further complicated in that I think the alarm activates the drivers door, making chasing this a bigger pain in the.....

2) My ONLY problems with the alarm thus far (5 Months and 8300 miles)
a) The trunk... There is NO sort of sensor for the trunk, hence I can open and close my trunk with no less than a warning beep...
b) A$$hole neighborhood... My alarm is sensitive to the pricks that have the illegal vehicles, ya know the ones, no exhaust, or the "no-way-in-hell am I legal" charry bombs... I get to hear my alarm warn everyother car in the area, god forbid a Harley cruise by... The like to sit and set it off all the time...

Anyway that is the end of my rantings....
Hope this helps...

Mike
