    Locate where the shock sensor is (usually on the steering column) and adjust the sensitivity from there. It should look like a little black box, zip tied to the steering column with a little knob sticking out of it.

    99% of shock sensors adjust by a knob or flathead screw driver.... takes all of 2 seconds too do.
    they usually mount the shock sensor on your steering column because it's one of the most rigid parts of your car.

    i couldnt imagine ever taking my car to a shop to have them adjust the shock sensor..... might as well take my car to the shop to have them adjust my dimmer switch for my interior lights

    well, i traded some 86 chevy van for my alarm, my screen, an amp, some wiring, and a few other goodies.
    i bought 2 more autopage pager alarms for my moms 99 burban and my sis's jetta and they were $120 each at dealers cost

    oh, and no pics of the 240 for some reason.
    i've been meaning to take some, i'll do it by friday and post them up
