    after market alarm vs. stock

    just got my 04 the other day and it has an aftermarket alarm on it and the stock subaru one also..they both work and i'm having some trouble with both of them...does the stock subaru alarm have to be disconnected to let the aftermarket one work normally...

    what do you mean by "and now the stock alarm won't go off...". Was it working before or did something happen to your car? Do you know for sure that the subaru you purchased that the factory security upgrade? You may only have keyless entry.

    do you know anything about the alarm? who makes it, who installed it, a model number...

    if you haven't installed an alarm before and/or don't know a whole lot about circuits and 12v systems, i'd recommend you just take it to best buy or circuit city and have them look at it. It'll cost you, but it might be worth saving you from headaches. My .02

    yea i'll check into the stock alarm...but its a omega max-e alarm....the whole thing started when i went to set it so it would act like a turbo timer...it has a feature that will let the car run for 2 mins after you take then key out...i dunno if i did something wrong that set it into some mode that i cant get out of or what...i didnt install it..it came on the car i bought the car used...i might just have to take it to a cc or best buy..another thing i did take the main box out and look for some kind of master reset and there wasnt one and i also unplugged the battery for like 10 mins and still got nothing

    it kinda sounds like a programming issue. either read the manual and try to figure it out or let a pro handle it. good luck dood.
