Yes...

1) Which remote starter are you trying to install, and how far along are you?

2) There are lots of wires to talk about; which ones are you hunting for right now?

3) You have the VATS system, right? (i.e. resistor chip in your ignition keys) Assuming you do, you will need a bypass adapter kit for that.

Helloooo...? Are you there? Just ask us what you need. You got _my_ questions to _you_ in the previous post.

P.*. There isn't any _one_ wiring diagram; the factory manual breaks the circuits out by function into separate diagrams, so it'* not necessarily easy to say, "What does this blue wire behind the glove box do?" What you can say is, "What color of wire is the Unlock key-lock input to the Lock Controller?" and like that. (light green. )

The manual will also tell you (with much flipping of pages) which connector(*) the circuit passes through and where those connectors are located, so eventually you'll get the answer you need, but it is certainly easier to just post your questions here because most likely someone such as myself has been there before. It'* also okay to say, "I am in over my head and need to figure out how to start over."

sorry about the delay. yes i do have the resistor in the key. the type of remote starter is a stellar. I have not even attempted to cut wires yet. I had my dash open and didnt want to mess with it.
I have the directions for it, but the problem is that when i tested my vatts chips for its resistor, i would get no reading. that was one big reason that i didnt continue with the installation.

Right: without a bypass module for your VATS system, set to the correct resistance, your remote starter is going to be dead in the water.

What I did was to stop by the local Ace Hardware store. They had a gadget called a VATS Interrogator that basically tells them what number of key pellet is in your key. There are 15 different possible keys, and when they stick your key in the lock on the front of the machine, 1 of 15 LEDs lights up to tell you which yours is. Any good locksmith probably has one of those things, as would the local GM dealer.

That doesn't give you the resistance rating directly, but you can use a table like the one here for the BulldogSecurity VATS bypass module ( download the PDF document from http://www.bulldogsecurity.com/pdf/Model781.pdf and skip to Page 4, the fifth page in the file) to look up the rating. So for example, if you have key #5, the table tells you that that'* 1130 ohms.

P.*. With very few exceptions, you're not actually going to be _cutting_ any wires, but splicing your remote starter wires _in_ to the existing wires. You'll need to strip a bit of insulation off the existing wires, wrap your new wire in, and tape it up. I always solder the connection as well.

Go carefully and don't rush. This installation is going to take you a while, so don't start at lunchtime and figure you'll be done that night. On the other hand, you probably won't immobilize the car during the process, so at worst you'll need to move some dangling wires out of the way of your feet if you absolutely need to get in and drive it somewhere before you're finished.
