My Limited has a perimeter alarm that arms about 20 seconds after locking car, the owners manual describes the alarm "if equipped" suggesting it is an option, my window sticker does not mention the alarm anywhere; option or otherwise. Does everyone else have this alarm? Is it standard, or an option?

Thanks, Javier.

Hmm, that's a good question. I wonder if mine has it?

The 11/01/2008 order guide indicates that Perimeter Alarm is standard on every 2009 Flex.

The perimeter anti theft alarm feature can be armed by:
- Pressing the lock button the on the key fob
- Pressing the door lock control switch to the lock position with the door open and then closing the door
- Pressing the 7/8 and 9/0 button simultaneously on the keyless entry keypad

The system (smart junction box) monitors all the inputs doors/hood/liftgate and the key must be out of the ignition. The system arms in phases depending on when the various inputs were closed.

Unauthorized entry will cause the smart junction box to sound the horn at regular intervals, and intermittently powers the turn signals causing them to flash.

The alarm can be disarmed by
- Pressing the unlock button on the fob
- Turning the door lock cylinder to unlock
- Using a valid programmed PATS ignition key to turn the ignition lock cylinder to the on position
- Pressing the correct vehicle unlock code in the keyless entry keypad.

You can easily test the system to see if you have the alarm. Lock the car as usual with key fob for instance, then after a period of time (cant remember how long the alarm takes to arm) go to the car and manualy unlock with the key (not the button on the fob) the drivers door and open, the message centre should show straight away insert key or alarm will sound. I found this out by acident, hope this helps.
