alarm self installation
« on: 17:43, Fri 28 November 2008 »
has anyone installed an aftermarket alarm them selves? i am looking at buying a gtt to restore was thinking that while i had everything out it may make it easier to install one myself,  i realise that by installing it my self i couldnt get a a cert to show my insurance but insurance is cheap enough anyway( im getting on a bit now lol) thanks all

If you feel your competent enough to fit one then why not?  8)

I'm sure new alarms would come with all the instructions/wiring diagrams.

ive been told that they dont come with instructions as they are supposed to be fitted by qualified fitters but there is always a way to get them, at least by doing it myself the money i save can go on something different

Surely installers would need a wiring diagram of sorts.

I'm sure a few of the better security systems haven't even got colour coded wiring to further prevent any unwanted person having away with your car.

on th eclifford website they say that instructions are only supplied to official fitters but, there is a seller on ebay who apparantly is said fitter who is selling instructions only 1.50 so worth a look

I tired this, got pretty far.

Then spiked it.

Its not too hard if you can read the diagrams and can hide the wires.
