IS THIS A FACTORY ALARM OR AFTERMARKET? IF ITS AFTER MARKET YOU MAY NEED A NEW CONTROL MODULE. THE BUTTON IS JUST BY APSSING THE WHOLE ALARM SYSTEM. MOST ALRMS HAVE A LIFETIME WARRNTY ON THE MODULES ( CLIFFORD DOES) IF YOU CAN FIND DEALER NEAR U
It was put in by ford dealership ,thank you for ur response.By bypassing my alarm and pressing button all the time will I break my starter.
