After spending the best part of a weekend the other month installing a new alarm (aftermarket) I thought id save everyone a job by making a list of the wire colours, where they go etc etc.
Here are some PICTURES of the installation:
- The boot solinoid relay location
Now for the WIRING:
1st Connector Block:
Light Blue – Right Hand Side Indicators (see additional info)
Light Blue+Black – Left Hand Side Indicators (see additional info)
Orange+Black – Ignition Switched Live (Live When Key Turned + When Starting)
Gray+Black – Boot Light (-)
Gray+Red – Bonnet Switch
Red+White - +12v Constant
Gray+Yellow – Right Hand Door Lock Motor (see additional info)
Light Blue+White – Left Hand Door Lock Motor (see additional info)
2nd Connector Block:
Black – 0v
Orange+Black – Front LED +12v in
Yellow+Red - +12v Constant
White+Red – Alfa Tester (don’t need)
Orange – Remote Control Signal Unit (don’t need)
To install the remote boot release, attach the wire from the alarm module to the +12v signal wire on the back of the relay connections..
Cables Run From Front:
X2 to the front door lock/unlock wires which are in the big connector block at the side of the relays under the ignition barrel.
(I can’t remember which is which, just plug in and try, if locking when it’s supposed to be unlocking – simply swap the wires round)
X2 cables to the LED which is in a white connector block which is under the ignition barrel aswel.
Black – 0v
Orange+Black – +12v
(I had to run new wires to the LED because my alarm had a switched 0v rather than a switched +12v)
Central Locking is NEGATIVE triggered
These two wires needed diodes on them as they are independently controlled, if no diodes are used, then when you use the left or right hand indicators all of the indicators come on (like pressing your hazard light button). I used 10A diodes – just to be on the safe side because I put 500mA diodes in firstly and they burnt out because the indicators draw something like 5A of current so I used 10A just to be safe.
These two wires I joined together as these are the NEGATIVE inputs for the door triggers.
I also installed remote start but I took it off as I found out it voids your insurance if your car gets stolen (because you have to glue your imobiliser chip next to the ignition barrel)..
Remote start is easy enough, think it was only 4 or 5 wires that needed connecting, pm me if you need any help..
