Spay the window bro (specifically the drivers side close to the mirror)...
& are you sure you have it on the HIGHEST sensitivity and not the LOWEST sensitivity (either was I wouldn't put it on either extreme)?

I'd love to see the entire Toyota line (including Lexus & Scion) with the keyless entry/ignition like Lexus has (charge me the extra $50 on top of the sticker, IMO its well worth it)

Mine is on 10 and it is very sensative...tapping on the window lightly with a key will set it off. When my mom hit my car.......it went off, maybe it needs to be checked

I know toyota likes to use Hornet alarms from DEI (Directed Electronics), the same maker of Viper, clifford, python, avital and valet. Toyota attaches this alarm module to their keyless entry system, which is why you use the same remote to operate the alarm system. Just look at the alarm module. It should have a piece of black rubber or plastic glued on to the logo of the module. I took mine off and it was a Hornet, could be another brand on other vehicles, cannot confirm that. BTW, there should be a shock sensor on the alarm systems, built in to the module. There should also be a tiny **** to adjust sensitivity.

just pounding ont the window might not do it. you have to get the frequency of glass shattering. when we install alarm we use the key to tap on the glass to test it out. try that but don't hit it too hard. as for the dealers using DEI alarms, some do and some don't . depends on where you go because each dealership has their own installer that does aftermarket alarms.

Hehe I will try it. It just sucks that that's the only way the alarm will go off. I'd like to be able to protect my car BEFORE the window is shattered.
