Please give me some ideas if you can. My sons car got broken into last week and they took some cash and other things.. He has a decent system in his car and now I am worried as a parent about them getting the car stereo stuff next time. I was looking at the clifford matrix rsx3.5 or one of the vipers.

TIA, Jeff

i have a autopage 520lcd in my 02. Mine also came with manual locks but i just added some acutators. I think they were model 524t made by DEI

viper 350 hv or python 460hp and you can add power locks.

i already got actuators from my roommate. he pulled em off his old car when he sold it. is it possible to have a remote start if u have a manual trans? if so any of those alarms have remote start?

Ok found those actuators and they are cheap like $11 a piece. Could I get the viper 5901 or would that be overkill on that vehicle?

That is a good alarm for the money, and perfect for you. Made by DEI the company that makes Viper.

5901 is over kill for your kid. the remotes are expensive to. how old is he. 560xv alarm remote start. done a bunch of those and am considering just doing that on my next truck instead of 2 way. i am tired of the bulky *** remotes.

Just get any DEI 2 way alarm. Add some door actuators. How did they break in? If they smashed your windows get a glass sensor.

You can do what I did to my last car. Disconnect the manual trunk lever and add a trunk pop solenoid and hook that up to a aux output on the alarm. I also took out the trunk key hole and put a back up camera in its place so the only way to pop my trunk was through the remote. I had a lot of good stuff in there and was pretty paranoid haha.

Python 872 or Python 991 has manual trans mode. The only diff between the two is that the 991 has a 2way lcd remote. Vipers version of the 991 i believe is the 5901. Either get that or a compustar unit. I would prefer the Python/Viper because of the 1 mile range though.

I have the brain to the Viper 560XV, and the remote to go with it, its practically brand new, was used for like a month, but I dont have all of the harnesses for it. PM me if you want it.

I think I have the antenna for it too.

Ended up buying the python 460hp today at circuit city going out of business sale. Picked it up for $54 out the door so I thought that was decent.

Peace and tanks all.

the autostart? mine had a bunch i almost bought a few but, i have no install experience with them even tho they are dei. remote starts i stick with valet or vipers mainly, but i do the python1400xvl's alot. avitals i do some i just hate the wiring end on them. i did get a pkall today for $35 out the door, which is just about cost on that unit.
