do you have the instruction manual? you will never figure it out without that. Read the entire manual first, to decide if you think you have the skills for it. Around here, shops only charge $200 for a remote starter and installation.

over here its $200 for installation and about $225 for a good 2 wat alarm.
i wil lbe getting the autopage rs727 alarm from ebay as i already have the same one in my 88 sse and i only paid $100 for it. i figured i can save on the installation..

you are not a newbie anymore, so I'm not gonna search for you.

you will literally find dozens of threads about how to bypass the VATS with a resistor

Whoa.. who upset Haro?

On the remote starter, you will want to follow your alarm manufacturer'* instructions for the Vats bypass to work properly with the remote starter and still function properly if someone is trying ot steal the car. There are a number of different configurations that typically vary by manufacturer.

thanks for the info bill. and haro is right. im not a newbie. i just need to search and stop being lazy.. lol

anyway i seen something that is used to connect to the car when yo install the remote started to a car with a vats system.. its a lil box that you hide a second key with a resistor inside and just connect a couple wires to your vats and the installed alarm and i should be o.k. here is a link to what im talking about.. what do yous think?
sorry the link did not work but if you go to the website and look in
(security bypass modules).. its on the left of the page;

www.bulldogsecurity.com
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Part 791
Univeral learning bypass module

Universal transponder bypass module
Works on all Factory Anti-theft Systems
Please Note: If your vehicle has a Transponder anti-theft system, you will also need an additional key to put inside the 791 bypass.

by the way someone give haro a cotex.. ouch

all the bypass kit is is a rheostat and a relay. the system kicks on the relay, putting the rheostat(variable resistor) into the vats circuit, allowing vehicle to start, then pulls the relay. now you can't touch the brake pedal till you put the key in to put the resistor back in circuit. You can build the same thing with the correct resistor and a relay.
