Alarm Wiring Question!
So I had a Clifford 2 way alarm and remote start installed in my truck less than a month ago and it turns out that the installer wired it up so that if the dome light comes on it will set the alarm off. If i push the dome override button and open the door when the alarm is set nothing happens. So i went to the shop and asked the guy to redo it and he claims that if he wires it to the door trigger that it could cause the computer in the truck to stop working and that he won't accept responsibility. I really think that he just doesn't want to do it because it will take a while to do and plus i'm only 16 so he probably thinks I'll believe whatever he says. He said he will do it but he highly suggests that i leave it wired through the dome light. Opinions?Michael, 17, CA

If it's me I'm going to one of his competitors for a second opinion. They will tell you the truth. If you want him to do it right you'll let him know that you've done your homeworkMarc

he buddy! sorry for what has happened. okay, i have been an installer for going on 5 years now. i have done countless alarms and remote starts. heres the deal: we sometimes use the dome light in the car beacuse the door trigger wires are all weird to wire up. however, the one rule in my shop is that you do not do that to any car that has an over-rivde for the dome light. so heres the thing, we use an inhernet wiring database from directed electronics, witch is the leader in manufacturing alarm and remote start systems, so it is EXTREAMILY accurate. this is a direct copy and paste from our database:
left front door trigger wire (-) gray/black(left), black/white(right)
location: each door module in each door
notes: On base model trucks, the door trigger wires are in the lt. blue plug at the BCM, pins B4 and A5. On 4dr trucks, the LR door trigger is lt. blue/black, pin A3, and the RR is lt. green/black, pin A2. They are in the purple plug at the BCM. Use all wires and diode isolate. The BCM (Body Control Module) is under the driver side dash. It has 6 plugs in it, the purple plug is on the back.
so, with all that said, it is kind of a pain to do the door triggers, and thats why hes feedin you all that bull $&#*!! BUT, thats what you paid for! so, print this out, take it to the shop, tell them you want to speak to the owner, slap it on the desk, and tell them you want it done right, right now!!!
let me know how it goes man!!

WOW! Now that's what I call a great answer identityPRS, that will give him some leverage with that installer! Good luck with your truck too, I hope they get it fixed up the way you want it.2004 Chevy Colorado

Well, I got it all taken care of and it works just as i want it to. Thank you so much Identityprs. I printed that out and he said "oh yeah we have that database too but what he didn't tell you is that you still run the risk of ruining your computer" but its all done now and its how i want it so thanks. I know his story is a bunch of BS. I won't be returning to that shop.
