Alarm Or Not
I am looking at getting an alarm fitted to the jeep before i pick it up from the dealer, has anyone had any experience with this or have one fitted, apparently it works with the keyless entry so no need for a key fob.

What about the factory alarm?

I have the factory immobiliser but don't think it comes with a siren type alarm, i am in Australia, not sure if these models come out as standard.

josh, I have a STD CRD Laredo (Australian)and my build sheet outlines that it has a security alarm.

Btw I haven't physically got the vehicle yet.

Thanks, I will have a look at mine also, it should be the same. i might give the dealer a call after the weekend and confirm it with them

Re: Alarm Or Not
The factory theft deterrent system uses the vehicle's horn; there's not a siren.

No motion detection. It goes off, for example, if somebody manages to open the locked door but doesn't have the keyfob on them. i.e., such as breaking the window or reaching in through open window and then opening the locked door using the inner door handle.

Re: Alarm Or Not
it definitely would be nice to have a motion sensor installed, either factory or aftermarket.

Re: Alarm Or Not
Thanks Everyone, I spoke to the dealer and they confirm what Jeeters said, the alarm will activate if someone opens a door or flipper glass etc. I might look into the motion sensor a bit more, we don't get the option like the US does.
