Re: Ford approved/compatible alarm for Fairmont EL
I've been to 3 different places now, and they have all said they need to disable smartlock to get the alarm to work, and the 'upgrade' alarms don't work on smartlock-equipped cars. The only reason I could get from them though, is that the BCM doesn't put out a consistant enough voltage to keep the alarm happy. I personally don't like ths idea, you lose the standard remotes, and I don't know what the consequences are of disabling smartlock....
