car alarm

hey guys,
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.

....Stoj :)

Yep I should be able to photograph the pages of my manual tonight.

A word of warning though, I was told is a big job requiring 4 relays or something...

Well some time ago I was looking to get an upmarket Viper alarm installed, and I was told that remote engine start is a big job by the Autobarn people. I could have been misinformed.

You'd probably replace the Dominator key fob :( with the one from the new alarm, but it's good that the motors are already installed...

remote start

what do you want a remote starter for, it's not as if you have a rotary

Re: remote start

Remote start is a good way to warm up the car while the doors are still locked. Especially good if climate control is fitted and switched on.



I hope this is what you wanted...?

Re: remote start

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.

Re: remote start

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...
