Hi,

Is this a factory alarm or an aftermarket alarm system?

we bought it pre-owned. it was probably installed at the dealership, maybe not at the factory. it is a Clifford G-4 system

Thanks.

That would definitely be an add-on system.
I will forward this to the aftermarket electronics section as you will be able to get more relevant information there. Please do not reply to this post as it will lock it back to me again and the others will not be able to see it.
Thanks, ***** ***** be with you soon.
