 Installing Car Alarms - How Hard?

How hard is it to put a decent alarm in by yourself? Also about how much do some professionals charge?

 DIY ALARMS

You can get a 'self contained' alarm by DEI (Hornet, Wasp). Very easy to install! Basic wiring and mechanical knowledge. My bro has a DEI (WASP). Very reliable system. Cost about $70.00 You do not have to go without a alarm because you don't know how to install, especially the 'DIY Self Contained' basic protection alarms (current and shock). Granted, you can't add on, but you will have protection and that is what counts! *wink* *BTW, I highly recommend DEI alarms. Very reliable and have been in the car security biz a long time!

if you are gunna get an alarm make sure its good, black wiring, totally sealed unit, in built relays. depending what your car is its fairly easy to find the wires you need. 12v ign stater motor indicators left and right door switch wire central locking wires, lock and unlock depending what you get it may have sum extra sensors on it i.e shock or glass break. these are usually standard but i would go with a shock sensor, it just has a safer working area, bump the car it goes off! simple. most of your wires like door switch and central locking can be found in your kick trim. to test it use a test light and push your door pin in and out, but make sure it works with all your doors. if you cant find it pop out your interior light and get the colour of the wire from there. with your locking it will either be negitive or positive trigger, if its neg trigger then the locks should switch when you put a test light on it, if they are positive trigger then you will need a relay. make sure you test this because hooking up a + trigger locking system may make smoke come out of your alarm. most alarms usually send a neg trigger for c/locking. its best to have internal relays for your immobiliser circuts that way there is less to mess with.
