Question Red security light?

In the owners manual it says something about a red dot that will flash when the security is enabled. I have yet to see anything flash. Is this an feature that comes with the remote start kit (82212424AB) or are there extra parts?

Check the lower right of your instrument panel after you lock your doors. It takes a few seconds to start, but check there to see if you have a red flashing light. I don't think it is part of the remote start

OK, get in the truck, lock the doors with the key fob, wait a minute and then open the door as if you were getting out. This should set off the alarm. Simply unlock the doors with the key fob and it should shut off the alarm. (If you're curious, I know this from first hand experience. And FYI, I wouldn't try it at 1:30 a.m. while the wife is sleeping.....they tend to get REAL mad!! hehehe But it WAS my first day with the truck!)

It's the same light that comes on when you turn the key to the ON position

Ok so I see the little red dot when the gauge lights all light up during the initial start up, but still nothing when I hit the remote lock button. I sat in the truck, locked it and then unlocked it with no alarm. I guess I don't have this?

did you lock the door with the remote than try to unlock and open the door with the emergency key...I know this will set off the alarm-horn honks(dont ask how I know this). If not I would go ask the dealer, it shows its standard equipment on the sport trim.

The alarm arms when you push the lock button on the key fob while the driver's door is still open. If you push the lock with the doors closed it does not arm the alarm according to my owner's manual anyhow.

Where do you see that it shows as standard equipment on the sport trim?

That wouldn't make much sense to not be able to arm it unless the door was open. Where do you see this in the manual? I am not able to find any reference to this.
