Truck Alarm Issue

So for the past 3 days my factory alarm has gone off in the morning between 0530 and 0600. It is starting to really piss off my neighbors.

It's not crap falling off a tree, because it isnt parked under a tree, and it's been 25* at that time in the am, so I doubt squirrels are jumping all over my truck. Nothing is on my windshield, so that isnt it.

Any Help is appreciated.

Maybe someone is driving by on their way to work with just the right exhaust note to set it off. I have one as well and there is 1 truck & 1 Harley that sets mine off. I have started to slowly dial the shock sensor sensitivity on mine.

They usually mount them under the dash just above the brake release. It's a small black box about 4x3" and there is a small raised dial stem (knob) you can turn clockwise to dial up and counterclockwise to turn down.

They normally aren't on XLs unless you have remote start. Usually on Lariat and above. I have an XL w/XL Premium pkg and they added remote start to mine which is also the alarm unit with shock sensor. But it can be added. The unit is about $200

I ordered my XL with remote start, How do I know if there is an alarm system on this thing.

Not up on this fancy stuff. My old 04 didn't even have keyless entry lol. The next newest vehicle I own is a 99 jetta TDI, now talk about technology.

If you just have remote start you more than likely don't have the alarm. For starters you can take a peek at where diveriter said the box is located to see if you have it. If you got the "extended" range remote start then you probably have it, to get the longer range one on my truck I had to purchase a stock alarm for it to work.
