Default Help with installing alarm system

I tried looking at the wiring diagram along with the instruction manual for the alarm system and its difficult, so i was wondering if anyobdy knows what wires to use as to installing a 2-way alarm system.

You dont want to be poking around ignition wires, because if you do and you mess something up, your not going to be able to start your car.


Take it to a pro for installation and ask lots of questions if your curious enough to learn a little. (they usually dont let you in the shop when its being installed.)

Please know that you posted a very general question. Without the model or brand of alarm.

If you read the instructions, it should tell you how to install it. However if you are having difficulty, the best route may be to save up and have it done by the professional.

this might help

Use this with the owners manual that came with the alarm. Might take ya most of the day, but if you know the basics of wiring you'll get it done. Good luck
