I have a factory keyless alarm and I would like to increase the remote range of the alarm. Can anyone suggest a transmitter or if this is at all possible? Thanks for your help.

first make sure the batterys on the trasnmitter are reasonable new, old batteries wen begin to fail, will greatly reduce range..

then if you still want to try something, do the following,,

romeve the glove box, behind it youll find the alarm unit, then a little tin black wire, that is the antenna, i would increase the lenght of the wire and tun the wire up on the a pillar collum behing the trim, this way the anttena is up there and not buried all the way in there..

i have not tryed this one, but is waht comes on my mind,

i really dont think there is nothing you can do internally to the remote or the unit..

keep us posted..

The antenna is preset to a certain length. Lengthening or shortening will only hinder the performance. Unfortunately there is no way to increase the distance of a factory alarm. The aftermarket ones have much better range. You can try to move the wire to a different spot, but changing the length, changes the frequency at which it recieves. Hope this helps...
