Default Scytek Alarm Issues

My 2001 Bonnie came with a scytek 2 way alarm system, plus door unluck etc.. www.scytek.com is their website and I found a manual for it. But the issue I am having is the darn thing (the alarm on the car) goes off by itself every 2 hours or so even in them middle of the night, neighbors are not too happy with me now. It is a 2 way because when the car alarm goes off it sends a signal to the fob which beeps when your alarm is going off. It will reset it self after about 40 seconds of going off, or i can hold the unlock button till it shuts off.

My question if anyone has every used this before is how do I adjust the sensitivity if that is the problem, it also could be a small short in a wire or something also, since I had car toys reactivate the alarm system. They charged me 75 dollars and hooked at all back up for me. Now I know why the fuse was missing for the horn. That was to keep the alarm from waking neighbors I am sure of it now. So the quick fix would be to pull the horn fuse again, but then I am left without a horn on the road. I really don't think this alarm was hooked up correctly according to manufacturers specs. It only took the car toys guy like 15 min to hook it back up. The door unlocks and locks work great, even the remote start works sometimes. But the trunk release button does not function. So If anyone has experience in scytek alarm products please help me out on this and let me know what I should do.
Thanks,

Is the alarm a shock sensor? I've seen a few alarms where the sensor is put in the door which makes it very sensative to wind and loud mufflers.

I believe your link should be scytek.net, not skytek.com.

Give us a link to the exact model you have if you can.
