- Alarm will not arm or disarm.
Usually caused by a blown fuse in the main electrical box. (yellow 20A)
Check/replace batteries in key fob.
Check inline fuse above alarm brain (blue 15A)
- Lights flash, no chirps, but the alarm arm/disarms
This usually means the alarm is in “valet” mode.
Your owner’s manual explains how to change this
- Alarm chirps more than 2 times when disarming.
This means that one, or more, of the magnetic sensors is not working correctly, or the wiring to them has an issue….or;
The alarm has a fault stuck in its memory. You need to do an alarm reset (reboot). Call us for the instructions.
- Alarm chirps 2 times when disarming…and then once more about 5 seconds later.
This means that one of the zones (out of 4) has been triggered. This is usually is the motion detector picking up motion. If you’ve had a bad windstorm, thunderstorm, or maybe some obnoxious neighborhood kids rocking the truck to try and trip the alarm, the motion detector may have triggered. Items that are hanging from your ceiling that may swing if the truck rocks a bit will also trip that detector. 99.9% of the time an alarm reset will cure this issue. The other 0.1% is typically a bad sensor.
Usually caused by swinging tags, t-shirts, bags, etc., in front of the motion detector. Even a gentle breeze will cause things to swing inside and those motion detectors are sensitive. Four fixes for this;
Remove anything that swing from in front of the motion detector.
- Dial the sensitivity on the alarm brain to lowest setting (small black knob on bottom side of brain box. Turn CCW).
Reduce the sensitivity on the Motion detector (call us for procedure), or;
Worst case scenario is to tape a piece of cardboard over the “eye” of the motion detector, thereby blinding it. Your alarm system will still function as normal (doors), but the motion detector won’t trigger anymore.
