Ive searched and there aren't meny topics that describe an alarm that I want. Its for my 1996 Lumina with electric door locks and trunk release.
-An audible alarm, doesn't have to be insane loud, just attention getting, one that might even incorperate the car horn.
-A pager to tell me if its going off say if Im in class.
-At least 2 remotes- the main pager Ill keep with me then a backup to keep at home.
-Realiability. The alarm on my other car is an orion and SUNLIGHT on a hot summer day will make it go off.
Dont want (or know I wont use):
-Remote start.. its useless to me.
-Fancy display on the remote
-A million different alarm tones
I read the topic started by Buck and the post from the 'pro installer' guy and am thinking about hood pins. The thing holding me back from getting them is that Ive only seen them installed on the outside [ugly]. If theres a way to install them underneath the hood or in a place that keeps them hidden, Ill think about getting them. Also thinking about shock and maybetilt. I know there a billion people that desire my blue 1996 Lumina but I know they're too scared to tow it away.
Im also thinking about installing a siren on the inside of the car too. Anything I should know that relates to that?
I will be installing this myself in a couple months when I install the majority of my stereo. Im not sure if I'll need anything outside of what comes with the alarm package so let me know.
Most importantly to go with the alarm suggestions, where can I get it? Id prefer online but I can go to major retail stores too if they have them for a good price.
