Why would anyone in their right mind sticky a thread where the link doesn't even work.

Then later in that thread when another member post a working link, you go to some ghey forum... where there's another link.

Plus, it's stupid... common sense.

ehh, i like to do some things def. different. Instead of cutting wires and leaving a trail on dei units pull the pins out instead way cleaner.

Then, especially @ CC... when they come back for their FREE uninstall (for the life of the vehicle)... what happens when you need them for the next vehicle they want to put it on?

That was the lamest 5 pages of nothing I've ever read.

I was expecting a full step by step alarm install, not how to cut wires in different lengths!

sorry the link didnt work, i just copied it from another post i had and never checked it. but yes everyone has there own way of doing it but it does help. i cut the wires, i also ground the nuetral safety and add a ground to ground the siren too.

Everyone may have a different way but for someone looking to get into installing pt/ft, its a nice tutorial. Murph is prolly the most knowledgeable person I've ever encountered in regards to alarms. The pics of his installs are top notch and wish I had someone around me that would do work like that.

well the store should order all NEW wire harnesses anyway. and use the same brain. so that should not be an issue

I've found that when an OP asks for a thread to be stickied, said thread usually *****.

Stickies just happen. You cant force it.

has never bench prepped any alarm

06-03-2007, 12:06 PM
the best part was that he didnt even describe how he shot the wires or tested any locations.

he didnt describe why he used what wires for that car, he just said cut wires you dont need off and tape everything up.

nothing of significane was explained at all. IIRC - dont dodge neons have resistor based locks too? or is it just two different circuits that need a diode in between?

azbass
06-03-2007, 12:11 PM
most all new dodges use resistors for locks.

azbass
06-03-2007, 12:12 PM
all door/trunk/hood/ pins Should be diode isolated from eachother

Hey guys I see you found my BENCH PREP document. That's right it's a bench prep document for installers. Everyone has to start somewhere.

The reason no pins are removed is for future upgrades. I believe in doing security installation not alarms. A T tap will never touch my work. Solder and tape only.

That I know of CC does not pull alarms for free. That would be a waste of money. This type of install is labor intensive.

Everyone has their own style and I am not saying mine is the best. I have not seen anyone else trying to teach the basics. I am working with a company on security training from basic to advanced integration. We will offer onsite training and more.

Just to give you haters a little background. I have 14 years experience in retail mobile installation. I am one of the contributors to the new MECP master’s guide. I have been of the forums for over 8 years. For some strange reason I like to help people.

i asked for it to be stickied as a helper not a this is how it is done. i bet your training will be better than the select products one.

No response?
I guess that means you have nothing to show. All you can do is make smart *** remarks with nothing to back it up.

There is some good threads both here & in 'General Audio' sticky thread titled: "Tips to avoid getting jacked" to post some professional advice in.

I have already. ;)

Every location I've worked at/been to has pulled alarms for free, it is part of our "labor guarantee". Not saying it's the smartest concept in the world, but we do it.

eh...fun times working on alarms. Resitors, Diode isolating door locks...all for a POS raged out car that has lanzar subs.

I only install alarms for CLOSE friends now and when my old shop has a newer car come in that they don't want to get f@cked up. They call me :)
