^^^^^^ Mine works the same. I tested it once inadvertently. I used the key stored in the fob to make sure it would unlock the door (I once received a mis-cut key). The alarm sounded!

I would like my Ramboxes and tailgate covered by the alarm. Some shock protection would be nice as well. My Explorer had a similar type of factory alarm. My Wife left her purse under the front passenger seat while we ran into my Parents house to pick up our daughter. In the 10 minutes we were in there, someone threw a large rock though the passenger window and reached in and stole her purse. Alarm didn't go off since they never opened the door.

I too would like my Rambox compartments to be protected, I agree. Actually, I'm going to look into that. Should be a simple switch wired to the doors. Good idea indeed. Points.

Shock protection produces too many false alarms too often.

As for your scenario: either the purse was visible where it was located or somebody knew it was there.

Seems my alarm arms regardless of doors or open or closed when locking with key fob. Based on blinking light.

However I too now am looking into shock, proximity, and glass break sensors. Any one have a good advice for a customizable system that could be added to the factory set up? I already have remote start etc. So don't necessarily need a whole new full blown system installed.

don't tell anyone, but most alarms don't go off if the vehicle is accessed through the back window

so something with a Mercury Switch would be nice
