Alarm Choices for WK.
 
I currently dont have an alarm in my 05 WK. I was going to go with the mopar factory alarm but they are discontinued and I cant find one left over anywhere. What is a good, basic alarm to install? I dont need anything fancy like the remotes that tell me my alarms going off, I was actually hopeing to not have to carry around another remote. Are there any alarms that can run off my key fob i have now? I just want something that goes off if the hood is opened, doors opened, glass breaks, tilt sensors, and something that is tamper proof as in goes off if the wires to the battery are cut if it exists. Is it true that theres a way to get the specific transmitter signal so thieves can turn the alarm off?

any alarm made by DEI is good......I highly doubt you will find any alarm that will run off your factory remote. All of them have sensors for what you are asking for.....but your gonna have to put up with another remote

eh, your forgiven since im picking ur brain on stereo help at the moment anyways. Lol. And im selling that rock key cuz they shipped me the wrong one, its for an 04 and earlier. Im just lazy and never shipped it back so im stuck with it now after 6 months. Plus before I bought it I specifically asked them if it had the buttons for the lock/unlock and they said yes but the dam thing doesnt. Why would I want just a key with no buttons??? ha.

I'm 100% sure there's SOME alarm that works (is armed and disarmed) with the factory keyfob. Remote start too, if you hit the lock button twice.

I see it at work all the time. I haven't been able to find out WHAT alarm can be programmed that way though!

I would def rather get an alarm with that feature. Maybe i'll take a ride to the car audio store near me and act like im going to buy an alarm off them if he can tell me which ones have that capability. Thats the one reason I was trying to track down the mopar factory alarm, which is no longer available. I must of ordered it from 5 diff places online only to get told they didnt actually have them anymore and my money refunded.
