Just bought a nice '07 for my stepson. It has a KARR alarm system, in addition to the stock alarm, that I don't understand. The OEM system just makes noise this KARR supposedly disables the engine too and has some different honking. My '09 just has the usual one or two beeps when fob is pressed...this one is a different critter.
After I got it home I discovered the keys work fine in the ignition but don't turn/unlock the doors. When locked there is a pretty intense blue flashing LED coming from the module under the dash.
The fob unlocks/locks the doors fine but I'd still like to have the keys work in case the fob's battery dies, etc.
There's a couple little cards that came with the manual explaining how to put the system in the 'valet' mode but that's about it.
Does this KARR system typically override the mechanical function of the door locks, would the installation actually change the locks?
