    can anyone help me with the difference between alarm mode and warning mode
    on the security system? supposedly there us a warning mode which senses
    low impact movement and emits a 2 warning sounds. my 99 outback does not
    seem to be set to this mode, and i would like to change it...??????

    It depends on whether your alarm has a dual-stage shock sensor, and
    how it is adjusted. If you have this type of sensor, it should be
    adjusted so that a light impact triggers a warning chirp and a heavier
    impact triggers a full alarm. If you have the manual it should tell
    you if you have such a setup.

    find any info in the manual on this, only a vague reference that it
