Got my alarm installed yesterday at a local place. Since I can't talk to them about this until Tuesday, I thought I'd pick yall's brains.
Not sure I can do anything about it until then.
Anyway, they apparently hooked up the alarm to use the dome light to detect whether the doors are open. The problem, of course, is that the dome light doesn't shut off right away when I get out of the truck. So if I arm the alarm before the dome light shuts off, the alarm thinks that doors are open and beeps five or six times and is irritating. The alternative is to stand there until the dome light shuts off and then hit it.
Was there another way for them to hook this up? My previous car ('08 Camry) had the delayed exit lights, too, but when I armed the alarm then, all the lights would shut off right away, no problem. That alarm was installed at the dealership.
If I can't do anything about this, I'm going to have to have them disable the chirp. One beep is annoying enough, five or six is out of the question.
