I have not tried it yet. The truck is at home. I am at work.
So you think that I should just open the door with the key, we know the alarm will go off.
Then I should put the key in the ignition and cycle two or three times? I replaced the battery in the key fob yesterday; the key fob will not work. the little button is damaged, I guess. My thing is, I don't want to open the door and just have the alarm blaring for hours.
I just want to be clear. Are you saying " the alarm will STOP blaring, when the key is cycled in the iginition?"
Ok. Thanks. I seriously dont think there is any prob with the alarm. It is simply that the key fob itself is inoperable. Since it is the device that quiets the alarm & also lets me start the engine, I just wanted to be assured that the alarm would not just stay ON for hours. Further, I wanted to be sure that I could turn the engine ON. I can't get to my owner's manual, because of course it is in the glove-box in the locked vehicle.
Thanks for your help. PS. Do you know where the over-ride for the alarm is, somewhere underneath the dash?
