Default Service manager says alarm has to be on Prius from factory.

After paying $4000 more with original dealership, and being told I couldn't get an alarm with no explanation, emailed other nearby dealership. The Service Manager called and was knowledgeable and nice, explained that with Smart Entry, can't add an alarm & Toyota doesn't recommend after-market alarm due to battery concerns. I was glad for an explanation & will be going to them for service -- further away but trustworthy.

option packages that come with the factory alarm:
AG #4, AI #5, BC #9

option packages that come with the smart entry and start system:
AG #4, BI #6, AM #7, BG #8, BC #9

There is the port installed accessory package PPO V5. Part # 08586-47840 for the VIP (Vehicle Intrusion Protection) RS3200 security system upgrade.
a very brief description is here: http://www.toyota.com/vehicles/2004/pri ... ories.html

I can't see why you cannot add the Toyota alarm to the #6, #7, and #8 option packages...
