Yp, Looks like it will work. I think GAMEOVER (joe) has one.

Looks like it should. It seems a little weird that they'd advertise "Factory Security Disarm & Rearm outputs" since it is a security system itself; why it wants to arm the factory security system is unclear, but I guess a belt-and-suspenders approach won't hurt. As long as the vehicle is locked using an external lock signal (such as at the outside door key lock switch, via the light-green wire in the door that'* grounded by it), the factory security system will arm itself.

Make sure you get every wire connected per the instructions, especially the one they describe as "Ground When Start Output", since that is the one that prevents your own (factory) security system from going off when you activate the remote starter.

Um, yeeessss... A couple words of advice up front, if you don't mind:

1) Don't freak out when you read the installation instructions. They'll be both complicated (because there is lots to do) and vague (because they have to describe how to install the system on dozens of different brands, models and years). Just take things one step at a time. Your biggest problem up front is probably going to be identifying the correct wire colors for the circuits to locate on your car. We can help with that.

2) Don't give yourself an immovable deadline for when you have to finish the installation; it'* going to take you a while, and there are lots of areas where something unexpected may happen, or something breaks, or you just get stuck. Having another car available for parts chasing is helpful.

Good luck and keep us informed...

Don't dread it, but it can be a little intimidating when you start in. I'm working on an installation in a '93 Escort (yes, that'* right ) at the moment, and even when you've got all the wires identified, etc., you still have to slog through all that grunt work of disassembling things without breaking them, tapping into wires and soldering connections, reassembling, etc.

Let me suggest that when you really get going on this, start a new Subject posting here with some accurate title like "Installing a <whatever it is> Alarm/Remote Starter on '93 Bonneville," and we can talk details as you go.
