Has anyone had their rear occupancy alarm just go off? Hubby and I ran errands earlier today and got back home around 7. At 10:26 my alarm went off. There was no one in or near the vehicle. Any words of wisdom?
But he's saying the alarm goes off as soon as the driver's door is opened. Before he would even have a chance to retrieve the backpack.That's a good warning to remove the backpack or bag from your backseat since leaving any "treasure" in sight is an invitation to the car boosting criminals to go ahead and smash your window to see if they won a lottery (laptop).
ask anyone who has parked a car in San Francisco if they'd ever leave a backpack or bag in their back seat. anyone who has said they have no problem leaving a backpack or any bag visible in their parked cars are just the minority who haven't had their car boosted yet. It's sad that it's become the norm for cars to get boosted, and many more even go unreported because the tourists either don't have time to report it or figure they'll never get their stuff back anyways so they don't report it.
I never had issues with mine but I did disable it after awhile just because we don't need it. But for the several weeks prior to disabling, it never went off. I just didn't like the alert that popped up everything we turned off the car.I had to disable the rear occupancy feature because it kept going off for no reason shortly after being turned off. I do have a child (no childseat) obviously I'm not leaving him in truck and there's nothing sitting on any of the seats possibly triggering the alarm. After turning vehicle off us getting out and doors locked within 3-10 min the alarm goes off. It requires you to unlock and open doors, which means I have to run out to truck to stop the loudass alarm. Luckily bluelink sends me a notification, otherwise being in a store I'd not hear. Before disabling I'd get alarm to stop, head back in store only for it to go off again a couple min later. Last time I had it serviced I had them check it out but of course it didn't do it. I shouldn't have to disable this feature so interested to know if any got this resolved and if so how.
I know...I told dealership maybe it's haunted because it wouldn't do it there but of course 8 hrs later it did it 🤔I never had issues with mine but I did disable it after awhile just because we don't need it. But for the several weeks prior to disabling, it never went off. I just didn't like the alert that popped up everything we turned off the car.
Does sound like you have some gremlins especially with your other post.
