Alarm Problem

Hi everyone,

Still having trouble with getting my c/lock going.

I jsuit had a look and I realised there's a wire not connected from the alarm, It's "-ve out while armed" any ideas where I'm surpose to put that, I tohught maybe it has something to do with why the c/locking doesn't work???

Re: Alarm Problem

It just means its a NEGATIVE output that is only active when alarm is armed, you can use it to trigger what ever you like, i.e. anything that requires a negative to become active, like use it to lock the doors, arm an imobilser, fire up a pager system. or just dont use it.

Re: Alarm Problem

I dont understand why it wont work!!!!
the alarm c/lock wires are negative, if I tape those two wires together the yellow and red one it locks and unlocks

Re: Alarm Problem

Turn the alarm on, check the wire, does it actually output negative, or is it dead, maybe a problem with the wires. or it may be very low voltage/amps, you may have to use a relay to switch a good negative from the body to power the doors.

Re: Alarm Problem

It may also mean that it pages out a negative only when the alarm is set off, test that scenario as well, so you know what the wire does when.
