    i hate stupid who mess with other peoples cars you cant adjust a factory alarm as far as i know it will only go of if the voltage in the car changes (like opening the door) thats why they dont go off when you hit them ive delt with car alarms and audio for years

    Then apparently you don't realize that we have bump sensors on our cars. That little box that I mentioned above is it. There is a white adjustment screw on it that makes it more or less sensitive.

    As for how far you adjust it. That's all up to you on if you want it to go off all the time or not. Just keep adjusting until you find the right setting.

    Mine is still at factory settings and if a loud enough truck drives by it will chirp. Same if loud thunder rolls by. Also if I set it at the car wash, and I'm using the brush, it will go off.

    I can't remember for sure, but I think you have an option of turning this sensor off also with the alarm adjustments, but I'd have to look at those options in the manual again. Yours could be off if it doesn't go off when bumping the car. Test it by closing it up, arming it, then hitting the outside wheel well, above the tire, where the sensor is located.

    I just adjusted mine a little... left it on the low side... cause neighbors started getting cranky about the fact that I was doing it at night...so I'll continue tomorow...but it works like a charm...

But when i do get it leave it right outside my place i always walk out to people sitting up on my hood, leaning up on the spoiler, or walk out to shit written in the dust/dirt on the car at times. my complex will only assign us one spot and between my room mate and i we got 4 cars. So putting the t/a there is a rarity. Cant just believe no one has respect for my car around here. Im just glad i didnt have my new hood on yet or i would have beat some a$$. I really want a car alarm or something to get people from always being on my car. Is there anything that sensitive?. I need to do something that doesnt have to result in moving or having to start revenging on someones car. i just wish these people had some respect for crying out loud.

    Yeah i live in apartment complex too over summer july 4th night some retard backed into my front nose then drove off messed up paint on front was perfect before
