I just bought a car alarm from a friend of a friend, and one of the functions of the alarm is to remotely start the engine. I opted not to pay $150 and get it installed and try and do it myself. Was wondering whether anyone has, or can get a hold of, the wiring diagram for the EA fairmont ghia ignition.
i didnt buy the alarm for that..
i bought it cos i need an alarm and it was only $185 through a friend of a friend, and it was one of the features that the alarm has. It has a shock sensor and code hopping and a backup battery built onto the siren, so if u cut the siren wires, it keeps goin. Since its got it, i might as well put it on, and will help, as im sure a lot of people dont warm up their car before driving.
Ben, I'm not saying that any alarm system can't be defeated, but I think that EAs are in no danger from professional thieves unless they have exceptionally expensive parts fitted. Therefore even a basic immobiliser to protect from joyriders would be enough to make an EA highly unlikely to be stolen.
I'd say that a new HSV Clubsport with the best alarm on the market is more likely to be stolen than an EA with a Dominator immobiliser...
