Just had this thing installed, and it all appeared to be working fine before I left the shop, but I got home and realized this problem...
This is on an old truck. Well, the truck obviously has no trunk. The installer figured he would rig it so that the alarm system would treat the Hood as a trunk, because the hood on this old '78 Chevy can be popped open by anyone on the outside of the trunk, with no internal release pull or anything.
So the hood is treated as the trunk as far as the alarm is concerned. Well, for some reason, the alarm thinks that the trunk (hood) is always open. When I remote start the truck, it's paging the Key FOB and telling it that the trunk is open, so the alarm goes off and the truck shuts off.
There is a little button, similar to a button on a fridge door, and whenever the hood is closed, it pushes that button DOWN, so that the alarm will think the hood is closed. I have tried holding down the button with my thumb (thinking that maybe that button just wasn't getting pressed down the whole way), but it still trips the alarm and says "Trunk Trigger" when I remote start.
Anyone with knowledge of these systems, please advise.
