View Full Version : Daily false-alarms
01-17-2009, 04:40 PM
Friends got a viper 5002, **** thing gives him these warn-away false alarms everyday. The actual alarm (siren/lights) doesn't go off each time its just at the little responder remote. I know they got the nuisance prevention which stops it from doing it after like 3 consecutive times. It will warn him like 3 times and stop after that. I'm thinking its just the crappy dual-sensor thing that's just giving him these false alarms. Any ideas? Its not a problem just annoying and happens EVERY day after he gets done driving and arms it for the night.

just turn down the sensitivity...

I'm going to do that for him, I'm thoroughly reading through the manual for him right now. Its weird though because I have the same exact alarm installed in my car and have never had any issues with it what so ever.

Did you figure out how to turn it down? did it help?

Ya, I turned it down and so far so good. If it happens again I'm going to turn it down another level or so. I made sure it still reacted to bumping the door pillars and lower windshield and such. Well see if that works, I had mine installed at Finish Line with no trouble great install. He had it done at BB, I guess they didn't go through the settings and test the sensitivity.
