08-09 altima car alarm question

Asked by Dec 23, 2014 at 07:38 PM about the 2008 Nissan Altima 2.5 SL

Question type: General

I drive by my girlfriends house every
morning on the way to work, I want to put a
note on her car tomorrow morning, are the
alarms super sensitive? Would putting a
note underneath the windshield wiper set it
off? I can't tape it because it'll be
raining.although I suppose if the alarm light
isn't on it doesnt matter?

No text message or a phone call?

I will instead if I have to but it's considerably less personal. I'm just wanting to know if me moving the wiper might set it off or if it's more for something like when someone tries to open the door with the alarm on

You should be good. Just don't bump into the car or let the wiper arm smack back down onto the windshield. The alarm on my '00 Grand Prix is super sensitive. A clap of thunder will set it off, as will a loud motorcycle, or even a heavy rain! But gently lifting and lowering her wiper arm should be ok. Emphasis on GENTLY! HTH. -Jim
