factory alarm - how to disable?
I have a 2005 SCrew. It has remote keyless entry, but didn't have the keypad on the door when new. I bought the new keypad/door handle assembly and installed it (worked perfectly - easy upgrade). My wife drives the truck and uses the remote all the time. I don't like carrying more stuff and always use the key (habit anyway since my jeep doesn't have keyless entry). And just because someone will ask why, the keypad was put on for convenience. I use it when out mowing the lawn, etc, so I can get to the garage door opener (and the beer in the garage). I don't know what my wife uses it for, but she wanted it.
Back to the point. The battery died and I jump started it. The horn started going nuts, and it now turns out that I have a factory installed alarm that I didn't know about. It's NO WHERE in my paperwork on the truck, and up to this point it was disabled. Turns out the three button key fobs disable / enable the alarm when unlocking, so all is good. The keypad I installed does the same thing, all good.
Two problems, if I use my key instead of the keypad, the alarm goes off. Okay, I can learn to live with that and re-train myself to use the keypad. But the alarm is just way too sensitive. It beeps at every noisy car up and down the street. Thunder sets it off, etc etc etc. Some nice guy here sent me a link to powercode alarm documentation so I can set the sensitivity. Unfortunately I can't set it with the 3 button remote I have. I've tried several combinations of buttons, but to adjust the alarm settings, I need a 4 button remote. I can get into the adjustment mode, but can't adjust.
Does anyone know where I can get such a remote? The dealer was worthless and could only get me a 3 button. Of course this dealer also said I didn't have an alarm either. Or even better, can I just disable the whole thing (without needing the 4 button remote to do it)?
...and sorry for the long winded post.
