Keyless entry number pad with aftermarket alarm

Now that i'm going to the gym and beach, I would like to leave my keys in the truck.

I know there is that stick on keypad that can work with the factory keyless entry, but is there anything I could do that would work with my alarm so the alarm wouldnt go on every time i opened my truck?

Why not just use the Explorer keypads that are permanently mounted in the door. Is it an aftermarket alarm?

The Ford keypads uses the Central Security Module just like the factory RKE fobs do. So you'd have the same issue with a keypad and the A/M alarm. Have you tried contacting the alarm manufacturer for suggestions?

Alon, most newer aftermarket alarm systems have a neg and or pos signal terminal for incorporating the power door lock systems. If your system does have this feature you may be able to use it to send a signal to the factory door lock system to open with the alarm disarm/Arm via the alarm FOB. Unfortunately I dont think the alarm module has a hard wire input that can be used to turn it on/off. You could set it up using the alarm but usually not the other way around. Look thru the manual that came with the system, see if it shows a input-output connection to manually arm/disarm the system. If it does then you may be able to tie it into the factory system.

If not and your really set on it working this way you could take an extra alarm FOB and cannibalize it into a circuit board so when you activate the factory FOB it sees a signal form the factory power door locks or the Central Security Module that would activate the board to pulse the hardwired alarm FOB turning the alarm on and off.

no way to do it. i have an alarm in my thunderbird and i can not use my keypad. only way to possibly get around to it is. do not hook up the domelight supervision and use the keypad, but when you open the door it will set the alarm off and you have to hurry and disarm it. remember if your keys are left in the car with you not in it your insurance is void if your truck is stolen.

What if you have a "hide a key"? I always have one hidden under the bed of my truck. I use it after coming back from long trips. Now every Minnesota member is going to steal my truck. But am I voiding my warranty?
