Alarm/Remote Start Install help

I am installing a Code Alarm SRT9000 Alarm/Remote Start that I have had sitting in my closet for like 2 yrs.
Have it all hooked up and down to a couple problems.

1. The Remote Start doesnt even attempt to start. Now I had the dealer put a remote start on my truck when I bought it new in 05, it was a Directed (Valet) 562T. They had a bunch of the wires back assward I found out, but I found a wiring diagram online and I know the wires to start motor, accessory wires, and ignition wires and the constant 12V are all correct. The only wires I didnt connect are what they call the Active Output/Ignition3 (blue/black) as my truck doesn't have either an Ignition 3 wire or something like a GM VATS system. It shows can also be used for Accessory 2/3 Output with a Relay but I have Accessory 2 already wired to the Orange Accessory 2 wire on the alarm so not sure why they mention this use. The other wire not connected is the External Start Trigger (white/blue) the other system wired this into the door lock motor but i dont care to use my keypad to kickoff the remote start like it would before, and have no reason to use another external device to initiate remote start, but does this wire still need to be grounded?

2. The wiring guide I am using mentions using the door trigger wire for both the dome light Supervision output and the Positive Door input. This works for setting the alarm off, but if I get out and close door, the dome light is on, when I lock doors/set alarm it is supposed to turn the dome light off, but instead sets alarm as the door sensor is already triggered? ie throws 3 chirps instead of one. I am wired into the Black/Light Blue wire in the driver kick panel for this with both my Dome Light Supervision and Positive Door Input wires to the alarm.

Thanks in advance for any pointers and sorry for the book I just wrote

Either go to each door and grab trigger there as the vehicle has a dome light turn off delay. You can also turn off the error chirps if running to each door and diode isolating it is not an option.

Also a lot of times the DEI alarms are set to manual transmission in the settings menus. change that to automatic and program the tach. Provided you have all the wires connected properly it should start or try to. No much to these trucks as far as remote start goes especially since they didn't get factory anti-theft until 2008.

well i removed the DEI system since the srt9000 is both remote start and alarm. I jst redid the wires into the column so I know ignition 1 and 2, accessory 1 and 2, power, and starter wires are all correct. I have the tach wire hooked into the green/white wire that was in the bundle behind the dash. I am about to go program the tach as I never did that hopefully that is all it is as like u said it seems pretty damn simple. What sucks is the DEI remote start was working for the most part :/ just wanted to finally get the stupid alarm in.

It is best to catch each door trigger in each boot and run them up to the alarm. That way you wont have to worry about the dome light supervision. You can also find them in a 14 pin plug at the VSM LG/YE, PK/LB, YE/BL, GY/RD

No relay needed. Diodes are needed though. You need to diode isolate the 4 wires before running them into one. That way your dash door indicator will still work.
