: Factory Alarm (?)

LoL, I've been putting this question off for a while... not sure why... but anyways... I'm pretty sure my car(2001) came with the factory alarm but it might be disabled/removed... where exactly is it located so I can check. I have the stickers on my door that say it has the "Factory Security Device" and I have the keyless entry option... it's pretty much exactly like my bro's car and he has the factory alarm... any help is appreciated.

okay, here is what you do:
1). open driver's side window completely.
2). lock car with keypad
3). reach in and unlock it manually.
4). open the door.

that should set it off if it is armed. i think its the simplest way.

and elantra stock alarm blows...i'm getting a viper put in eventually, the 2-way with proximity alert.

I found out I have an alarm but it was unplugged... I got it working but my remote stopped working right... brought it to the dealership and they replaced it for me with a newer one and I must say I like it alot. :D

I don't want an alarm that will go off if somebody touches my car... then people will be dicks and just set it off at night... I like the ignition kill on the factory alarm... that works better than loud beeping.
