If I unlock the door manually with my key, which I had to yesterday before I could get another battery for the remote unlock, the alarm goes off if I open the door.
Does this happen for anyone else and is there a way to put a stop to that?
Hee Haw!! Hee Haw!!
Mine does it too.... always has.
I discovered it at a quiet forest camp ground about 11:30 PM after everyone was asleep. I needed some meds out of the Jeep and I knew my headlights were pointed directly into someone's tent one site over. I knew if I pushed the fob, It would flash my headlights right into their tent so I decided to quietly sneak out and use the key manually in the door. So I'm standing there in my jammies being extra quiet and smug patting myself on the back for thinking ahead and being considerate and then I turned the key....
Honk Honk Honk Honk....flash flash flash. I panic not knowing what to do....so I push the panic button thinking it would shut the (*$#@% thing off..... WRONG.... it goes into double time. Double honk, double flash, double honk honk honk honk!!!!!
Long seconds pass, lights begin to come on around the camp ground. Voices and curses can be heard along with some jeers and laughter (not much laughter.) I finally jump in and crank the Jeep and the sound goes away. Whew!
Next day, I felt STUPID as I slinked around the camp ground hoping nobody would remember.
