How do you activate it? I have seen it blinking on other cars at night, but cant get mine to work?
yea, but i also heard if gives you alot of fault codes when the dealer hooks their computer upOriginally posted by woobiee@Jun 22 2003, 03:48 PM
yes AZ is correct. You can have the clown nose to blink without the alarm. You can even have the turn signals blink when you lock/unlock the car without the alarm.
I believe once you program the signals to blink for unlocking/locking the car and have the clown nose to flash when you lock the car, it is basically fooling the computer that there is an alarm onboard. When you do this, and get the OEM alarm afterwards, the alarm will self activate; with no need to activate the alarm at the dealer.
