Auto Start Alarm Install

Hello everyone, because i could not find a lot of info on installing a alarm/auto start I figured i would take pictures and see how it went. I will be installing a Clifford 590.2x Alarm On my 2006 F350 Amarillo.


I started out by taking every item out of the box, lol, that is a given.
Then i went and removed every wire i would not be using.

H1/1, H1/8, H1/9, h1/10(may go back and use this wire) H1/12, H2/1 H2/2 H2/3, H2/4, H2/5, H2/6, H2/7, H2/8, H2/10, H2/10, H2/11, H2/12, H2/13, H2/14, H2/15, H2/6.. Because this is my first auto start instill i just taped them out of the way..

I placed the srien on the driver side finder well,
[IMG][/IMG]
Once i finished a dropped a screw that my truck ate. I noticed on the other side. and noticed there is a lot more room. If i could do it over, That is where i would place it.


Next I cleaned the window and placed the Control Center behind my Rear view mirror

I ran the wire by tucking it under the head liner, and down the driver side of the truck.
[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

Next i removed the panel where the fues box is located. So the fun stuff could start. After i removed the panel, I noticed a pre drilled hole. And low and behold my Neutral safety swich fix, and was hiden out of view, and i could still access it. (Important! Neutral Safety switch must be plugged in and in the on position)



Next i looked for a place to put the brain. In the storage (umm dont know what it is called) I found out behind it, on the left side the box fit very nicely.


And now here comes the fun stuff. Next was the Door lock,3-pin connector.
I found this by using a light tester, and poking the wires, once grounded they locks unlocked or locked. showing me i had the right wires.
They are located where I found them easy to get at on the driver side of truck, on the bottom where the plastic step thing is at.
Blue wire to the Black/white (Side not, This is the smaller wire, there is a bigger black/white that is also in the group) The Green Wire goes to the White/Red wire.




That was the last easy part for me, Now its time to get into the bigger wire harnesses. H1/2 and H3/9H1/2 Red wire/h3/9 Red/black wire I connected to the left side of he fuse cluster, There is a power all the time wire with a nut and bolt. So i did not have to tap into any wires. (no pictures for that that will have to take one tommrrow.)

The H1/3 Brown Gets connected to the Red + wire coming off the Siren.

H1/4 ????????? Have not figured this one out...


H1/5 Black Is a ground. I found a nice place to put this. Along with. h2/18 black/white Neutral Safety Input. Look Right of the fues.



H1/11 White Is the Parking light Output. Said it goes to the brown wire at light switch harness. I used the brown wire on the dimer switch. It worked great.

[URL=http://s1321.photobucket.com/albums/u550/Hightech23435/?action=view&current=DSCF2387_zpsd6d90b0b.jpg]

H2/9 Violet/White. Tachometer Input For this one you need to remove the 4 bolts holding the fuse box. The wire is taped onto a larger wire harness. Pain the the but for me to find.



H2/17 Brown Brake shutdown imput, It goes to a green Wire at your brake pedel.

Now the Scary and hard part. Remote Start, H3

H3/1 -- Pink -- (+) Ignition 1 input/output
H3/2 -- Red/White -- (+) Fused (30A) ignition 2 / flex relay input 87
H3/3 -- Orange -- (+) accessory output
H3/4 -- Violet -- (+) Starter output (car side of the starter kill)
H3/5 -- Green -- (+) Starter input ( key side of the starter kill)
H3/6 -- Red -- (+) Fused (30A) Ignition 1 input
H3/7 -- Pink/White -- (+) Ignition 2 / Flex Relay output
H3/8 -- Pink/Black -- (+) Flex relay input 87a key side (if required) of flex relay
H3/9 -- Red/Black -- (+) Fused (30A) Accessory/starter input
H3/10 -- NC -- No connection

H3/1 -- (Pink) Goes to Ignition Positive wire (+) Red/Light Green wire in the Ignition Switch Harness

H3/2 -- (Red/White) Goes to a constant 12v power sorce

H3/3 -- (orange) Is going to the Accessory Positive Wire (+) Red/Black wire in the Ignition Switch harness

H3/4 -- (Violet) I have cut the Dark green Starter positive wire. And connected It to the cut half leading away from steering wheel

H3/5 -- (Green) Connected to the Cut dark green wire still going into steering wheel

H3/6 -- (Red) Goes to a Constant 12v power source

H3/7 -- Is not used

H3/8 -- Not used, my key does not have the chip.

H3/9 -- (Red/Black) Goes to a Constant 12v power source

**UPDATE If you have been following this thread you know that I had problems, Most were from unclear directions. The above Auto start wire setup is correct Finally.**

Looks like i am going to need to pick up a Signal inverter. 5C3Z-17C304-AA is the ford part number i have found, Monday i will give them a call, and see if they have one in stock or if i need to order it. Sadly nothing more i can do today. My TACHOMETER INPUT Green/white wire Gives a volt reading of 1.75 when truck is off, 9.75 when truck is cranking, and 11.75 while running. If anyone chimes in and can offer any other ideas
