Just in case it helps, I have an UNGO remote start that came in my car. The "brain" is under the drivers side dash, all the way up in the front-outside corner (against the interior firewall all the way to the driver'* side) and has 3 or 4 multi-wire connectors coming out of it. It'* not bolted in, just kinda wedged securely.

Maybe that will help you find or identify yours...

clarify this your starter kill get tapped in to that
Just to avoid any unpleasantries:

The starter cranking wire is light yellow, grouped with the other large-gauge wires as described in the TechInfo article (see link in a previous post above).

The airbag wire is _bright_ yellow, is routed by itself, not with other wires, and obviously should be left alone.

thats for aftermarket alarms but for factory alarms i dont know
The factory alarm has nothing to do with these wires. It'* armed when the car is locked, and triggered only via pin switches in the doors, hood or trunk (there'* an anti-tamper switch on the trunk lock). Lifting an outside handle without actually opening the door will not set off the alarm. Trying to start the car (even with the key) while the alarm is set (e.g. by reaching in through an open window with your ignition key) will also set off the alarm, even though the car _will_ start, oddly enough.

As long as you connect the Factory Alarm Shutdown Wire to your aftermarket box where instructed in your manual, you'll be fine.

Well i cant get anything done today because i dont have any black tape or a ride to go get some. I might pick some up after work today. The factory alarm works fine i tested it the way i was asked to and nothing is wrong with it. It will only go off when the door is opened so i guess that kind of simplifies things.

ok i need to know what color the climate control system wire is. I have to know about it specifically because this alarm system monitors the car'* temperature and for other reasons. After this the small harness will be done. I still have a 9 and 10 wire harness to connect. thanx

Remote starters do not connect directly to climate control systems. They do connect to the wire (orange) that powers the climate control system though. If your unit automatically starts the car below a certain tempature, it is doing this because of an internal sensor.
Some starters have an additional input that can be connected to some other source to trigger the remote start. This might be what you have. When you say "small" harness, it sounds like you are not referring to the larger gauge wires (we'll call those "power" wires) but to the smaller "control" wires.

Right! 'Cause the orange wire is energized during remote start operation. The brown wire (accessory) is not necessary to maintain the engine or heater so there is no need to energize that circuit.

Ok thanx. Ill probly do more work on this monday. When i connect this wire ill be done with this harness. My turn indicator light gets its power from the 12 volt constant power wire. The manual says that if the vehicle has a 12 volt switched input, then leave it alone but if it has a 12 volt ground switch it has to be cut. I think ive been told that its switched and not grounded am i right? I also need to know what to do about the parking light relay power input. How would i make this work. Should i just not worry about it and not connect it or what? It also says it has a limitaion of ten amps max.
