Huh, try making a sensible post instead of having to decipher. If you bypass the sentry key sensor then it makes it easier to steel plain and simple, if anyone does that I will guarantee you that I can bypass what ever alarm by whatever installer you have install it and be soaking up your ac listening to your radio in less than a minute. Specially since very few install any sort of hood lock to secure the battery, and if you have a back up battery well you just made it that much easier to find the alarm and the wires. I installed alarms from 90-98, I even did evander hollyfields 93 mustang that the alarm had over 50 functions controlled by the alarm, some of them being top up and down, ac on off, temp control, radio on and off, sound up and down, change channels, change cd tracks, change cd in the changer, doors open and close trunk and hood open and close. So there is not much I can't do with a relay, liniear actuator and so on. I'm limited to figuring out how the stock alarm works eithe independent or a seperate brain due to all my neck problems that I've had from doing alarms for so long but finally last week had the surgery to fix it and as soon as I can flex enough to get under the dash with the seats removed I'll be doing it because the way I have it now sucks and would rather go to the source independently for the hood and future motion sensor and impact sensor.
I know many feel comfortable with aftermarket alarms but if you actually went and looked at the install you would probably throw up.
Mobile one used to be one of the bigger install shop chain in the surrounding states and their policy was to bundle all the wires together with the brain and lay the brain and wires behind the carpet on the firewall. So most f the time it would interfere with the brake pedal or the gas pedal ect. If the brain is not mounted up az high as possible securely with all the wires twisted with a drill then wrapped with electrical tape with all the wires combined to corrosponding locations then thoroughly zip tied to the other looms but keeping the ties hidden as well. All connections need to be soldered as well, very very few do all this and is worthless, not to mention the laziest place to install the siren in the engine compartment. So a quick flip of two latches, throw up the hood rip the siren wires or cut the battery cable either way quick and easy, jump inside grab the wires at the lowst point, easiest place for the installer to tap all the starter and hot, ignition wires. Pull them down, the twist two of the wires together(the one that is not cut In half for the starter kill) then take the wire cut in half and touch it to the hot, now it's running. Steering wheel lock out is as quick and easy.
With the sentry key still up and running, there is no way to start it.
If you want me to prove it to you just send me your liscense plate is all I need and give my neck a few weeks and will be glad to show you as I used to do for texas dps, and Galveston county sherrifs office.
Really not trying to be a smart ass as much as it sounds that way, but I really feel everyone needs the truth about aftermarket alarms. If I would recommend anything it would be a lojack system. And if you do go viper or whatever stop in and ask to view one going in so you can see. Also one or two piezo sirens inside will really help keep Simone from spending too much time in there.
