So after reading a bunch of posts and getting some good information I decided to save the $280 and try the install myself. Even though its pretty cold out and we are supposed to get a snow storm tomorrow, I started the install tonight.
First off, the previous owner had an alarm/remote start installed but before they traded it in, they took everything out but on most of the needed wires you can tell where they spliced into them since there is just tape on them. The alarm that was there before was CodeAlarm but not sure which model. All I got were the remotes and the antenna.
Now my questions:
- On the plug under the steering wheel (which I am guess is the ignition harness) there are two thick yellow wires, which one do I use?
- On the directions below, it has three for the wires for the H3 harness hooking up to a thick yellow wire, is that all to the same yellow wire?
- For the green starter wire, mine is cut and goes into a relay along with the brown wire above the gas pedal - anyone know what that would be used for or should I remove that when installing the Viper?
For the time being, I am going to use the dome light for the door trigger. I might go back later (Spring) and hook them up to each door trigger.
Here is the diagram I am using (from Wojo):
Pink - White/Yellow or Red/Lt Green in ignition harness
Red/White - Thick Yellow Wire in Ignition Harness
Orange - Gray with yellow at fuse block
Violette - Cut green starter wire in half and wire this to starter side of wire
Green - Wire this to the Key side of the Green wire
Red - Thick yellow Wire in ignition harness
Pink/White - Red/Black
Pink/Black - Not used
Red/Black - Thick Yellow Wire in Ignition Harness
Red - any constant 12v source in the truck
Brown - Siren
White/Brown - Constant 12 v source
Black - Ground
Violette - Black with light blue ( this is your domelight wire. it is easiest accessed
under the kick panel trim. the wire runs in a harness towards the underside of your drivers side front seat.)
White - Brown wire at headlight switch.
Not used at all.
Remote Start Input
black/ White - Ground
Violette/White - Green/White (this wire is taped up in the same harness as the high idle mod wiring)
