Remote Start Install

I have a remote start kit for my wife's Excursion (Diesel). I am Pretty confident I have everything squared away, but I just want some input on a few things.

According to the Wiring Diagram found here
http://files.thehoffmangroup.com/ins...ons/RS1050.pdf

I believe I have everything ready, but I want to ask for some sound advice.

1 - Pink wire (Neg Trigger Activation Input). I'm pretty certain this should be wired to either my door locks (double tap), but I'm also thinking attaching it to the Antitheft trigger. Not sure which would work best/at all.

2 - The Ignition 2 and ACC 2 stuff.. Not needed at all right?

If that's the case then I'm pretty certain I have everything else in order.
ByPass (Red/Black) Goes to nothing
Wait to Start (Purple/white) goes to the wait to start light behind the gauges.
Ground (Green) just gets grounded
Foot Brake (Black/Red) goes to LightGreen
Hood Pin (Blue) gets routed under the hood to a special hood pin that came with the kit
Tach (Green) - Green/White
Starter Kill (Orange) goes to Relay #85
Parking Lights (white) Brown
Ground (Black) Ground
Acc (Blue/White) - Gray/Yellow ?
Ignition - (Red/Black) T to Red/Black and then on to Relay #86
12V (Red) - Yellow and LightGreen/Purple
Starter (Yellow/Green) - Cut factory starter wire, run one side to Relay #30
Run the other side to Relay #87
T in Yellow/Green Remote Start wire.


Please let me know what you guys think..
Again, I have keyless Entry..

What year is the excursion? I haven't installed mine yet, but after some research I've found that sometimes you can't use the wire off of the wait to start light because it won't work. You have to program the remote start to just wait 1 min. Or 30 seconds. Whatever you choose. Also what brand of remote start?

I have an 03 6.0 Ex. The remote start kit is the cheap ebay one made by Stellar. The rs1050 if memory serves correct.
Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to install it because my putter tie rod broke while I'm away for work, so I spent my spare time fixing that at the Hyatt place parking lot and getting it aligned. So my only warm day and free time during daylight hours are gone. I'll have to do it on the next nice day in Ohio after I get home. I'll watch for the timer thing. I'll set it up using the light first and if that doesn't work I'll try to program something ( if it can be done in this one)
Thanks.
