Soft chirp affects confirmation only. Having the siren under the hood might not be as loud as it did when you tested it out in the open.


Reading the manual will help determine what you'll use or not. Ignition input, 12v input, starter kill, parking lights, door locks, door pins, trunk/hood pin, siren output, mounting LED/valet switch/antenna, and ground are part of basic security keyless installation. Brown is normally output to siren's red wire. The siren's black wire goes to ground.

You need to look for the wire that says "siren output" you yake the red wire form the siren and hock it up to the siren output wire from the brain and then you ground the black wire from the siren. For the shock sensor where are you mounting it?

red wire from siren to brown wire from brain. and then hook up your door trigger and starter kill. so hook up ignition, starter kill, parking lights(proper polarity), power, ground,trunk pop,siren, door locks, sensor.

Those can be done independent of the alarm. The purpose of an alarm is for convenience and security at a remote location. If you're wiring lights and horns, they should be wired separately with a switch and relay.

use the aux for the horn and the 4th output for the lights because that is a latched output. i and use the 4th for my kc lights. great when in the woods at night ****ing around outside of the truck. and i use the aux for my window modules.
