My lights do not light when the alarm is armed or unarmed. Also, the status light under the rear view mirror does not work. DOes any one have suggestions on how to get these to work. It's not the fuse, I've already checked them.

when you arm/disarm, does it chirp like an alarm should, if so then you have the alarm. if not, you do not have the alarm

it is most likely that the flashy lights and the 'clown nose' are not programmed into the alarm system. the only way is to go to your local dealer to get it programmed.

you probably don't have an alarm. my car did not come with one but it is prewired for a factory one.

Yep, what he said. But if you do have an alarm, I believe they can be programmed to flash or not, to honky honk or not.

Maybe your hood switch isn't working.
