: 02 Sevile with No alarm on trunk switch

Hi Folks,
My TD does not sense when the trunk has been opened after the alarm is set.
The fsm describes the trunk ajar switch as being part of the "content theft deterrent system" but i can see no reference in the schematics to this being part of the alarm system when the car is armed.

if your alarm is set
and someone breaks into your trunk
alarm will not go off

It should go off, that is assuming your car has the "content theft deterrent system" option.
My 2001 Chevy Monte Carlo SS has that option and the alarm will go off if you arm the system and use your key to open the trunk (not the FOB but the actual key) it will also go off if you use the emergency handle in the trunk.
So I would think that because it doesnt go off for your car you may not have that option.
