Default Alarm/Remote Start Install (Aftermarket)

If you in the Hampton Roads area in Virginia hit me up. I do tons of modifications from Airride, Fiberglass interiors, Security/Audio/Video, Vinyl Graffics, Body/Paint, Anything..... I will be starting a new custom shop in Atco NJ 2 miles from Atco Raceway in a few months.

Links to my other work ... http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/659424/1
(Please check out all the pics)

Any other questions

AIM: O0oSmartAsso0O

Ok lets start by saying... I am not responsible for anything by posting this all info is provided as a "use at your own risk basis". Also if you dont know hot to remove or cant figure out how to remove the interior pieces and headliner DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS you will not make it threw it all.

Everyone installs an alarm a different way I like to find all the wires before I install my alarms so I know how long to make each wire and where to send it. If you dont know what you are doing please dont try and complain to me if you mess up. All though the scion xb is very easy to work on I wouldnt attempt anything I wasnt 100% I could complete.


Make sure you test every wire before you make a connection if your are not sure of what a wire does why connect it with something. You could end up spending big bucks.

Lets Start....

Remove 3 Screws holding on the panle covering the steering column. 1 Silver one underneath and 2 behind the steering wheel itself. You h ave to turn the steering wheel to get to these 2 screws. After that pull apart the panel. Only other things you need to remove are the drivers door sill and kick panel no screws need to be removed.




The lock wires are located in the dirvers kick panel in a 14 pin plug.
Lock: Blue/White -
Unlock: Yellow/Black -



The brake wire is located in a black plug abouve the brake pedal.
Brake: Green/Red +



The Door Trigger wire is located at the top front of the fuse box in a 9 pin white plug. Almost where your left kneww would be when driving.

Door Trigger: Red/White -



The horn wire is located at the front of the steering column all alone in a black plug
Horn: White/Red -
(This is also a good place to run your thermastat if your alarm has one. Mine is right next to the horn wire.



The Tach wire is in the OBDII Connector. Its easier to remove it from the hole by pushing the tabs on each side in with a small flat head.
Tach: Black (Pin 9) ac




I grouned the alarm as far up as I could so that noone can just look under and rip it out near the bottom.



I put my shock senser far up next to the radio.



I put the vallet button in a hole that was already there just needed to be made a little bigger a few inches in front of the OBDII connector.



The parking lights are in the steering column in a black plug
Parking Lights: Green +



The rest of the wires are in the ignition plug in the steering column. White lug about 3 inches from the steering column.
Battery: White/Blue +
White/Red +
Starter: Black +
Ignition: Black +
2nd Ignition: Black/Yellow +
Accessory: Blue/Red +




I cannot stress enough the knowledge it takes to installing all this. There is still alot of things I left out like starterkill relay and other small things.

Every alarm need to be programmed so even if you find all the wires but cant figure the programming out your car might not be able to move.

If you need someone to insall an alarm/remotestart/keyless jsut send me an PM. I live in Chesapeake VA so if your close by I will be able to do it asap. I need money bad cuase Im moving to NJ soon.

Thanks James

Been looking for something like this. Too bad I'm in TX, if not I'd be over there quick.

Quick questions:

Where is the OBDII?
I guess you use a test light to find which one is starter and which one is ignition?

Thanks,
Dien

ODBII plug is visible by looking under the dash right of the fuse box.

This issue has been coming up alot with people. I would try diode isolating the door trigger wire becuase it could be a backfeed from the alarm/remotestart. If that doesnt work use a relay on the door trigger.
