I have a fully loaded 1998 Ford Contour that is getting a sweet audio upgrade next month. I live in a fairly nice town but I am looking into getting a Viper 5901 alarm just in case. I know a decent deal about car audio, though car alarms are Greek to me . Here are my questions:
1) Besides from the alarm itself, what else do I need? Is a Ford Contour specific wiring harness or "module" required? Or better yet, available? If this is anything like installing custom car audio, I would assume sore wiring adapters may be necessary.
2) My car has something called PATS (Passive Anti-Theft System). Without having to leave a key in the car, how can I get a remote start to work? I just think it's silly to leave a key in the car that you're trying so hard to protect . A friend of mine suggested using a 1100F PATS bypass module. Has anyone used this? Is it capable with the Viper 5901?
2) I want my car to say "Viper Armed." I believe I need a voice add on for that. What is the difference between the 516L and the 516U voice units?
3) What do you think about the Audio Glass Break Sensor 506T? They seem to be fairly cheap on ebay. Can I use both the voice add on unit and the audio glass sensor? How many add ons can I use on one Viper 5901?
4) What is the average install price for the alarm, the voice add on, PATS bypass, and the glass break sensor?
5) I believe that there is an AUX button on the Viper remote. Does this mean that I can not only start my car, but also turn on an auxiliary device too? I was considering adding some white under body neon-like LEDs lights under the car to guide/light-up around the car at night. I would love for when I hit that button, the white LEDs come on (of course I'd need them off when the car is actually on to avoid a ticket). I know I'm getting carried away but that would be a nice feature. All in one remote .
Thanks so much guys. I hope to have my Contour secured in no time.
Here's a pic I found off Google of what the white LED's would look like:
This picture pertains to question 5.
I think this would be great when approaching my car at night.
