Factory SVT Focus Alarm Observations.

Ok, here are some questions I have regarding the factory alarm.... Wondering if you experience the same...

If I use remote and unlock the door and don't open a door, the car re-locks itself after about a 30 second wait period.

I can lock the doors and do not see my lights flash, nor does the horn beep unless I hit the door lock button on my key fob serveral times. (maybe a bad battery???)

When unlocking the car with my key fob, I don't get any "lights on" indication that I unlocked a door. Meaning... headlights do not come on, nor do I see any interior lights turn on. I imaging with HID's they don't wire it for the headlights to come on, but any of you have your interior lights coming on upon unlock at night?

1. yes the doors relock if u dont open them after unlocking them, this prevents accidental unlocking by bumping the fob in your pocket etc.
2. if you press lock, hear the locks actuate, but dont see the lights, this usually means that one of your doors, or your hatch is not completely latched. The horn only beeps if you double tap the lock button.
3. your interior lights should turn on when u unlock it. your headlights shoudnt (at least mine dont). if your interior lights dont turn on, maybe you set the dome light switch to "off". move it to the middle to "auto".

the only thing that comes on is when you lock the doors. opening them does nothing.

Also the auto locking is a saftey feature.

Horn only beeps when you lock the car with the key fab 2 times
