    Installing a car alarm (Civic LXi 97)

    Recently bought a 5 star car alarm, and thought it would be ideal for me to install it myself and learn a few things in the process

    I had a look today at the ignition wire harness (under the steering wheel) and the main wire harness (next to the fuse box under the dash on drivers side).

    I have figured out the easy cables that the alarm needs to be connected to, such as the 12V unswitched and switched, starter solenoid for the immobiliser - but need your expertise for the following:

    • Wire from the ignition switch to the ignition coil
      The door unlock and lock
      Negative door switch
      Parklights, front and back
      Domelight


    I have had a look at some webpages for the wiring diagrams:
    http://www.commandocaralarms.com/wir...97/Honda/Civic

    The above does not state what wires are for the unlock and lock for the doors >.<

    Any ideas? Or am I too n00b and should pay for pro install?

    door locks/unlocks you need to work out weather they switch to negative or positive, its alittle complicated might, you need to get wires through the door, might need a electric motor to be installed etc..

    lights just flick on the lights and test fuses and take the alarm light wires off that

    The doors should not need a motor since it is central locking anyway?

    Man and I was thinking this was easy

    Before you go nuts, make sure your insurance company will still acknowledge the alarm if you install yourself. Some companies require you get alarms pro installed :wink:

    Yes, the insurance company might have a sneaky clause that you need an alarm certificate or something to qualify, double check to be safe.

    kudos to learning that, but i got my pro installed with a certificate

    On my EG its Blue/red and Blue/white. Blue/red receives power when doors are locked and Blue/white when doors are open.
    Basic B-series EG that does more laps than most race cars

    Just thought id point out that the star rating only applies if the alarm is professionally installed as its a combination of alarm and certified installed. (for future reference in this thread)
