As for installing make sure you use a multimeter and NOT A TEST LIGHT. When making connections strip the wires and solder together and then wrap a good quality electrical tape and then zip tie over it for extra protection.

Also when prepping for the install figure out what wires you need off the alarm and trim the others off and cap them or wrap with tape. The ones you have left start routing them together to one side of the box taping them up once past the alarm box. Split them in the areas they need to go like column wires here door wires there and so forth and wrap them up. This way when you put the box in the car you have plenty of wiring to make it where they need to go.

Try as much as possible to route the wires with factory looms so to disguise them somewhat.

Those modules for the antitheft sometimes have to be programed for the vehicle being used with a special adapter some get programed in the car and can be a pain and sometimes are faulty out of the box. But when they work they are awesome some even control door lock functions so that is less wiring to the actual vehicle.

Also programming the alarm for all the right functions can be a pain with just the remote for new installers and can take a while. I have a bitwriter that programs them without using the remotes and has a visual display to show you the menus you are in. 100x faster.

Most of all take your time. I will try to find pics of an alarm box prepped on a bench so you get what I mean by wrapping and routing them.

Didn't see the smart start part but that is an easy ish install. I don't know if they changed it but a year ago only authorized dealers were allowed to activate them so that might be a set back for you and some places will charge full install prices for it just to activate it.

Depends on who it is. Used to be only best buy installers could access it and activate. When I worked there if it was just a joe schmoe it would be $30 if it was another shop I would charge more. When you get to the activation part I should be able to help you out. Just let me know.
