    Can't get my alarm to arm...

    I tried following the instructions from the manual, but I can't get it to arm. When I turn the key it chimes like 5 times and its only supposed to chime 1 or 2 times. Any ideas?

    Ok, I got it to arm, but I turned the sensivity up all the way and could only make the alarm go off once after bouncing the car up and down. Maybe the shock sensor is going bad?

    You turned the sensitivity knob clockwise right? On mine the alarm will chirp just flipping the gas door closed - try just hitting the side of the car with the palm of your hand. Could be the sensor, but usually when the shock sensor bites the dust it just goes off randomly for no reason just after arming.

    I have the sensitivity turned up all the way and I had to push vigorously on the car to get it to go off. The sticker was still covering the sensor, so this was the first time its ever been adjusted.
