My alarm keeps going off for no apparent reason. Dealer said interior alarm sensors are too sensitive and they should have parts in about a month and will replace. Is anyone else having this issue?

It would help if there was a little background on the model year, model number, dealer delivering, etc.

So, I was driving down the road and all four wheels fell off my dogbox, I don't have enough pancakes, and I think the answer is an orange, because a vest doesn't have sleeves. Is there a knockoff China cable that will diagnose this? Hmmm, GuessweCAN'T!

Yes porsche piwis cable can diagnose tire falling off! Use with old version of durametric! So simple and cheap work so good!
