Apologies for asking what I know should be the sort of question I should be answering myself through a bit of research, but having had a hunt around, and seeing there is some talk that the Alarm is prone to faults, I figured I'd just lay my ignorance out for all to see, and ask.
So I picked up my 06 EX yesterday, and very happy I am with it
But I've never owned a car with any sort of alarm before, and am struggling to work out if it's actually doing anything. Read the manual, which says how to arm it, but doesn't really explain what would trigger it.
So if I press the lock button on the remote once, it locks the car, with no alarm, right?
Press it a second time, within 5 secs of the first press, it activates the dead locks and primes the alarm, right?
Assuming I'm right about the above, what should actually set the alarm off? I've got a few more questions on the topic, but might be best if I get that all clear in my head, with help from you guys, first.
ta very much!
