my factory alarm on my 2000 transam wont arm how can i repair ?
I just installed a NEW body control module & it will lock & unlock with the factory key fob
but it just wont set the alarm & sound the horn.
Sounds like they installed the wrong BCM (Body Control Module). There were different BCMs for cars equipped with different features. Sounds like you got one for a car with keyless entry but no alarm. HTH. -Jim
so i need to go & purchase another 1 & make sure & let them know my car has the factory alarm correct ?
Yes, that's correct. If your Trans Am is like my '00 Grand Prix there were 3 different BCMs. They're referred to as Type 2, Type 3, and Type 4. You want Type 4 (with content theft deterrent). Type 3 does not have the theft deterrent option. Type 4 does. HTH. -Jim
