    Is it your factory alarm?

    Either way, you can get it to respond from a further distance by putting the remote to your chin when you push the button. It works much better to do that than it does to hold the remote high in the air. It might be more of a problem with the remote instead of the alarm.

    I don't understand why people are so anal about distance. Personally, I like the fact that it only unlocks when I'm close. The idea of an alarm is to keep people out. Why unlock it when you're far enough away for someone to run up and take your shit? Just my .02

    Try holding the remote against your body when you press the button.
