View Full Version : need help installing motion Sensor PLZ!!
10-03-2006, 11:15 PM
ok just got my new alarm in the mail, gonna install it soon, but the motion sensor just came in a box with no instructions- i know the positive and the ground, but there are green and blue wires that say exterior and interior - where do i hook these up to on the brain? thanks

my guess is one is instant trigger and other is warning but not full alarm..what brand is it that might help.

who makes the alarm? what model motion sensor?
10-04-2006, 01:05 AM
oh yea duh-the alarm is an asianwolf astra 777
the motion sensor is the included one
the instant trigger and warning wires- they arent labeled on the alarm wiring diagram- when i get home i can list all the wires
10-04-2006, 04:31 AM
ok the wires available are-
- lock output
parking light output + 7a
passenger unlock output - 500ma
auxilary 2 output -
armed output - 500ma
horn output -500ma
dome light output - 500ma
hood/trunk input -
auxilary 1 output - 500 ma
door trigger input+
door trigger input -
which of those wires should i hook up the motion sensor too? thanks
ive never installed an alarm but i know pretty much the basics. Its just this add on adn the glass break sensor i dont know where to hook up. thanks

bump=- can anyone help me plz

you tap the motion sensor in to the shock sensor.. what are the colors on the wires going to the shock senson??
10-05-2006, 12:03 AM
well i didnt ask for opinions- but anyway i paid less than one hundred dollars for this alarm. It is one layer of security out of many that i have- all i wanted was an alarm that will possibly wake me up when someone is ****ing with my car- which this will do. Anyway- i have read on several different forums in my search for knowledge on this subject- that that is exactly what you ARENT supposed to do. anyone else have an idea?? thanks

the shock sensor on most alarms have a constant power. (red) a ground (black) a triger (most likely blue) and a warn away (green)
thats what you would tap in too, also dioed isolating the two sensors from eachother.

i was thinking the unused trunk input- should work right??
10-05-2006, 12:10 AM
i dont think it would work that way
10-05-2006, 12:13 AM
the shock sensor wires are red black blue and white
the motion sensor wires are black green blue and red
thx for your help btw
10-05-2006, 12:15 AM
so white is probably the warn away. and blue is an instant triger.
you would use these wires. and isolate the motion sensor from the shock sensor.
10-05-2006, 12:19 AM
ok, so would i tap a glass break sensor into these as well?? or more than likely just the blue wire- since it only has blue black red.... thanks a lot

correct. but im not to famillar with asian wolf alarms. the best thing to do is to test teh wires. first.
but the way i told you to hook the wires up by diode isolating the sensors from eachother, is the way to go.
10-05-2006, 12:27 AM
ok stupid question- im searching the net right now, and have come up with this
but how exactly do i go about isolating the sensors with diodes? thanks again
10-05-2006, 12:31 AM
maybe i understand- but why the need to isolate in the first place?
10-20-2006, 12:13 AM
You don't have to isolate the sensors. It'll go off no matter what sensors are triggered. You'll want to tap the warn away to the door trigger +, and the instant to the hood/trunk trigger.
