I can live without the audio beep confirmation and was going to try to avoid getting ripped off by dealer on software update.
You have to arm the alarm (lock car) and wait 2 mins before you try to stick your arm in the car to set the alarm off. I guess the internal sensor has to fully reconize the interior parameters of the vehicle. After you get the alarm programmed it works better and can be set-off with the hood sensor.
Also if you notice when you arm the car the clown nose blinks red fast and then goes to a slow blink. The instructions state that this means somthing is wrong with the alarm (or not programmed).
