    decent alarm?

    well with my new build about to be starting here soon, i figured i should finally invest in an alarm as well.

    i was at best buy (not getting one there don't worry - but i do have a friend that works there that can get me a discount on one) just lookin around, most are expensive as hell, and come with the door locks remote start ect, yet i already have all of that stuff

    what's a good alarm for me to get, without having to pay for all that extra **** i already have (door locks remote start and ****)

    also planning on installing it myself.

    budget, not really sure.. whats the average price? 150-250 i guess? cheaper would be best though lol

    Re: decent alarm?

    i was looking at getting this:

    Viper - Viper 5701 Responder LE 2-Way Security and Remote Start System

    could i just install the alarm portion and be on my way? or is the alarm and remote unit all in one, where i would need to do both?

    Yup. If you dont want the remote starter portion hooked up, then dont hook it up. That means dont hook up the wires required for the remote starter.

    Nice unit. One step below my 5901. I think the only difference is my pager has a little screen and such and I have a few hundred feet more range(assuming the claims are correct).You should enjoy it. What brand is your current remote start? Is is DEI? If so, plugs may match up and you may just be able to connect the alarm wires and remove your current remote start unit and swap plugs and be down to one unit so you don't have to carry two remotes and ish with you.

    Re: decent alarm?

    which alarms can i get for that cheap?

    as for my current remote start/keyless entry its code-alarm brand, had it installed 3-4 years ago at a shop

    i may eventually wire up the remote start/keyless anyways because like you said i don't wanna lug around 2 remote, but if i DID want to, i could just cut the current wires by the brain and splice them into the new ones, i shouldnt have to rewire too much if anything right?

    Don't know about 30-40 bucks, but a decent 2 way Avital 3300 can be found for ~$100 on ebay. Code Alarm has a few security units on ebay for well under $100 also. Personally, I'd get the alarm/rs just so you have the option of eliminating a fob in the future. And correct, you shouldn't have to rewire much if anything at all. just make sure you find a good installation guide of your current unit so you can identify the wires more easily for splicing.

    alarm with no bells and whistles, viper 350+. If you want more, I'd go with the 5901 over the 5701... the 5701s remotes' build quality are horrendous, also I've seen more issues with these units vs the 5901.

    If you want an absolutely BULLETPROOF alarm though, go a series back or two (viper 5900sst, or 791xv) if you can find them (when you can, they're usually cheaper and totally worth the money).

    I would say tear out what you already have. or else you are going to have your alarm always going off. you will have to unlock with your alarm fob then unlock with your secondary fob as well as when you start the vehicle you will have to unlock with your alarm and then start and you wont be able to rearm your alarm system without the alarm going off its your choice but when i did it i just ripped it all out.
