Re: alarm with hid lights

Factory Alarm Disarm Wire Location: At Drivers Door Lock Switch In Drivers Door

Re: alarm with hid lights

I thought the alarm only engaged when locking from the fob, not with the door switch?

Re: alarm with hid lights

Flashing HID bulbs is not good for them.

Re: alarm with hid lights

The alarm should disarm as soon as you unlock the drivers door and should not arm anymore without the use of a keyfob. So there is probably a problem with the switch in the drivers door lock mechanism. Even using a keyfob would in that case not disarm the alarm.
