    Turn Off The Alarm?

    Right when I goto car shows/cruises etc and I am near anyone with a sub playing (which is almost everyone at cruises) and I lock my car, I can guarantee within 2mins the alarm is going off ... is there anyway to lock my car but not set the alarm? I dont wanna leave the car open ... but is that the only way not to set the alarm?

    All you can do with the factory alarm is trun off the internal sensors which is probably what it triggering it

    To do so involves pressing both map light buttons and holding them down at once with the ignition on I think

    Think so, it should all be in your owners manual

    press both map light bottons together and then activate the alarm within 10 seconds. This disables the interior sensor.

    Never done it myself. This is what the handbook says.
