I have yet to set my alarm off in anyway and dont know how to without smashing a window (not fond of that idea to test I have one!).
So, How do you set your own alarm off? in the Focus, if you unlock the car with the key, then dont put the key in the ignition to disable the imobiliser, then it sets off, but nothing I do so far, will set the alarm off! lol
No, will not. The central locking activates the alarm. To activate it, you have to close the car with the fob.
Then, wait 5 min or so for it to activate. Then, if you open the door, alarm will go off. Can do it as well if you are sitting inside the car, remove the key from the contact and close the car (fob or button on dash). Then,after 5 min, open the door. Alarm will go off.
I regularly walk past my car on a weekend, as its parked on the street, it might not have seen the key in over 24 hours, and I always pull the handle to check that I definately locked it... I always find I did, but no alarm is set off by the random tug of the handle...
