    I can't seem to get my alarm to go off. I hit the window and drivers door pretty hard...but nothing. Opened the tail gate and slammed it shut..nothing. I know it's activated cause I switched to horn mode and the red light is blinking. If I hit the panic button on the remote the alarm does go off lol. Is the alarm really this crappy....kinda makes me nervous.

    Never figured out the alarm and what it does when you press it in and then out. Mine does work. I can open the tailgate and it will chirp 4 or 5 times. I'm guessing that it is a warning, but the manual doesn't get too specific. I don't know if the alarm came on many trucks as I posted questions before but never got too many responses.

    Hmmm mine didn't even chirp...I'm not sure what's going on. Maybe the blinking light will make them leave it alone even if it's not working lol

    Are you sure your car came with an alarm system? I thought when I bought my car it came with an alarm system, but it didnt. My car does the same thing you described.

    It may be an immobilizer. I've got the light on my car too, but there is no alarm. When someone opens the locked door without a key (brick, maybe?) It supposedly wont start. I've got a panic button on the remote, as well which sounds the horn...
