keyless entry/alarm

07-06-2008, 04:16 PM
ok, so when i bought my truck, it came with a CRAPPY keyless entry and car alarm. i would walk up to my car and the alarm would go off and then the clicker would decide to not work. then i would try to use my key to unlock it, and it would then keep going off. i eventually just got it ripped out.
now there are a lot of people stealing stuff from cars in my hood recently, so i need to get a new system. anyone got any reccomendations or things to stay away from?
i realize i could just buy one, but i prefer to have input from other people first. i feel safer. and i trust yall.

Did your Xterra not come with the factory alarm? Sorry, I have been happy with the factory alarm so I haven't looked at alternatives.

when someone tried to steal my system out of mine the factory system scared them away... the factory one has window sensors and all i was really impressed by it....

Bet thats pricey alarm there, how much that run ya and do you have to pay a monthly fee for the pager?

07-06-2008, 09:07 PM
haha no no nothing like that... the pager is a monthly thing..its just a radio wave that gets sent to it...but it doesnt go to to far.. like it will go thru buildings too. but its not pricey i got it for 200 installed... and that was at a shop... go on and take a look.then go to ebay and see prices..let me kno so i can tell u

what if i dont have a pager? i really dont think i need somethig that beefy. when im worried about it getting broken into, its in my driveway, and i could hear it from there, i dont need it paged to me.
i really just want a better system than the one i have now with a remote clicker thing so i can open it w/out the key. BUT one that one flip out if for some reason i do open it w/ the key

its just something extra..
this is a real good system..let me eat my lunch and ill lay it out for u

07-07-2008, 10:42 AM
ok check this out...the good things about this is . u adjust the sensitvity level on my carmy it was high as shit cuz i had 3000 worth audio and video.. anywho...if there is something felt the car will make a small siren sound warning the person...and ur pager vibrtes and chirps once and glows if they hit it real hard or try to do something then it will go off red and vibrate alot and the alarm is real loud.. its comes with 2 remotes... one is a normal one...i love the 2 way..and the screen lets u kno if u really did lock ur car or not..regular remotes can be in ur pocket and get bumped around and unlocked but if u look at the screen u wil kno if it is or it is not... any other questions?

07-07-2008, 10:50 AM
spare.. Lets say u have another veichle..if it has a crimestopper in it also.. u can use 1 remotes for both cars...pretty cool..

07-07-2008, 12:06 PM
i thought about one for a manual car but then sometimes i get scared to do it.. cuz lets say i forget to leave it out of gear

07-07-2008, 05:54 PM
naw dude, no need for remote start. that system looks incredible. how much was just the system? i really dont know that i need anything that intense. i was looking to spend more about a hundred bucks.

07-07-2008, 07:12 PM

Get the beeper. Nothing better then catching them!
Putting the old 9 in the back of their head feels great.
I know,hardass. But I hate people who steal.

07-08-2008, 11:36 AM

07-08-2008, 11:37 AM

07-08-2008, 12:18 PM
when someone tried to steal my system out of mine the factory system scared them away... the factory one has window sensors and all i was really impressed by it....

what kind of protection does the stock system offer??

07-08-2008, 02:08 PM
man, i havent even had time to do any research on the subject, i was hoping someone would give me one that everyone knew about, id go find it on some website and hit buy
no such luck. but im liking yours so far, i just really dont know that i need the beeper and all that.
when i get a chance, ill look into and and ill let yall know what i do.
thanks for the help, and im still open to suggestions if anyone feels like adding.

sensitvity level is prob really low

can it be adjusted???

07-08-2008, 02:40 PM
im not sure about factory systems...i kno after markets have them

07-09-2008, 02:00 PM
OK when I got my truck it didn't have any remotes, so I went w/ the most reliable and my most trusted, The viper keyless entry and alarm system. If someone slightly bumps your truck it will sound off loudly! Also it costs only about $100 installed.

07-09-2008, 07:20 PM
the alarm went off when the window was broken... and it will also go off if you try to unlock the door from inside after you lock it... and the security light goes off....

07-09-2008, 07:26 PM
NOW KEEP IN MIND veichles have a panic that comes with the car and a alarm system

like my dads van wont go off even if u break into it..but on his remote he has a button to make the alarm go off! but its not a alarm system

07-09-2008, 07:54 PM
that wasent the case for me.. LOL

07-09-2008, 07:55 PM
im liking the sound of that viper one a bit better. really dont want it that sensitive tho. it can be adjusted tho, i assume.

07-09-2008, 07:58 PM
yes it sure can.. viper is good but same shit as crimestopper but more expensive, thats why i went with crimestopper..check out the prices onlein

07-09-2008, 07:59 PM
ooh and i just to throw a acorn onto my car and it would make a chirp to back away if it happens again then it goes off, and jason its prob becasuse u have the facotry system not just a panic

09-18-2008, 01:20 PM
What if you don't have power locks? Does this include the actuators so that I can make it remote keyless entry? Thanks

09-18-2008, 02:02 PM
