My car came with an engine immobilizer but it does not have a regular alarm system that makes noise when someone tries to open a door or a window. I tried to have one installed at the dealership but all they could do was install one. Thank you, Mary

Jamey Wozniak, Owner and CEO at Joe's Hitch, Trailer & Truck Accessories Your best option is to have an after market alarm system installed. These can be as inexpensive as 99.00 installed and cost as much as 1500.00 It all comes down to what option you want...ie, starter kill, remote starting or window and lock controls.
