1998 AU Fairmont BCM Questions

Hi guys,

I am going to get an alarm for my 1998 AU Fairmont, and alot of them have features such as interiour illumination, flashes indicators and crap that my fairmont already does when it is unlocked via the standard keypad. I guess that when you press the button on the keypad, the car recieves it and sends a signal to the bcm to do all these things. Is there a way that i can tap into this wire or signal so i can hook an alarm up to it so that it unlocks all doors, interior lights come on and indicators flash, or do i have to wire them up again separately through the alarm???

Also would anyone have a wiring diagram for the BCM (What wires go where and control what).

Cheers Guys

New car Mini Me ?

You need to tap into the smartlock as far as I know.

BCM you want the ECU pin outs for it, I thought it had like 2 wires running to it.

Re: 1998 AU Fairmont BCM Questions

Yeah, the ald EA was getting a little long in the tooth. Things starting to let go on her so i updated to a Genuine Tickford Equiped AU Fiarmont. Alot nicer than the old one.

So i need to tap into the ecu???

I was told the BCM conroled Smatlock/Smartsheild, interiour light delay/dimming, head light delay, etc.

Does anyone know which coloured wires i need and from where?
