: Factory Alarm Question

I've got an 07 Short Lade that has been broken on to twice already. They keep popping a hole under the handle and getting in the vehicle without triggering the factory alarm because the vehicle thinks I am unlocking it with the key. My question is two fold...

1. How does the truck know when the vehicle is unlocked with a key?
2. Is there a way to bypass this alarm feature so that the alarm sounds even if you enter the vehicle with key.

Thanks in advance for the responses.

My opinion is that "factory alarms" are worthless - worse than worthless! A $65K vehicle should come with a FIRST CLASS alarm system that does everything, to include closing the windows and sun roof when rain is detected. But NO. And I'm sure not going to spend $1000 for an after market alarm for a leased car.
