    From what I’ve read in the manual I should be able to toggle the car alarm on and off, however I don’t seem to have that option. I can’t really tell if it’s on or off to be honest. 522B0E28-F423-41F4-B1D8-3964F57C2620.jpeg

    Yes, but I can’t enable or disable it. It is always looks like it’s toggled on but is “greyed” out.

    Is your car in park when looking at this?

    Is your Sentry mode on? If it is, I believe the alarm feature is disabled. Not sure why but that is what I found with my car.

    It looks the same in park and drive.

    Yes! This could be it. I can check tomorrow. I guess the alarm is on by default if sentry mode is enabled? This would make sense.

    Yes, the point is if Sentry is on, you can’t turn the alarm off. Be nice if there was text there to tell you but it is what it is. :D

    OP, isn't it hard to get your left door open with the car laying on its side?

    Haha I am not sure why the site added the photo in this orientation but figured all you smart people would get the idea.
