Question installing alarm

I got myself a aftermarket alarm, and I want to hook it up myself, where do I start and where do all the wires go? (connect to where, color code, etc)

depending on what kind of alarm you have, and how integrated you want it (remote start, window roll up, door locks, trunk release, lights, trunk and hood pin switches, aditional sensors, etc...), and how profecient you are with electronics, **gasp** it might be easier to go get some help from a pro.

Let us know if you need to know which wires on the car control what features, but you will have to find out how your alarm likes to be wired and what colors go where on your own.

Ok, my aftermarket alarm is called "Bulldog".
My alarm comes with a shock sensor, two remotes, and a relay (for engine kill)
I just want my alarm to perform when I alarm it, it will lock the door and disalarm will un-lock.
My 2.2L Impreza has power door locks.
In the diagram, it said to connect the wires to the "central door lock circuit" and I have no idea what color the car has.
Here are the diagram for installing the alarm:

from that diagram it looks like you might have to have a seperate module for it. You will probably have to look into it some more and see if the alarm came with this or not. You will also need to find out if the alarm produces a positive or negitive trigger, or if it actually needs to be hooked into the control unit.

and to edit your post you simply click on the paper and pencil lookin thing that shows up next to the date in your post.

also, if the alarm did come with a "central door lock circuit" module then you need to look at this and see if it has wires coming out of it or how it hooks into the cars wiring.

Bulldog... is that the make or model of the alarm?... Do you happen to know if they have a website? it might make it easier for us to help you out here... sorry this is so specific and time consuming. We'll get it worked out though..

Here's the picture of the alarm.





It comes with a siren, instruction, a relay, wires for the relay, alarm w/ build-in shock sensor, wires for the alarm, and two remote. I didn't get this alarm in Canada.... and there's no web site for it.

What year is your car? I will see what wire colors/locations I can dig up for you.

How mechinacally/electrically inclined are you?

BullDog

Unfortunatly this is not a very high quality piece of equiptment. If possible I would return it and buy something a little better. What kind of store did you buy it from, or did you buy it online? What other brands did they have availible?

unless purchase trunk light kit, you need to make your own hood & trunk trigger with pin switches.

I prefer to use mercury switches instead of pin switches. Easier to install dont have to drill more holes in the car, don't seem to corroad as easy.

from the diagram of the alarm i would say that it has built in relays and you dont have to worry about positive or negative outputs for locks, since the input wire on the lock relays decides that. should be ground though for an impreza if i remember right, so you would ground the input side, and send the output side to the appropriate lock wire. I'm suprised that bulldog makes an alarm like that, i was only aware of their older stuff, which was a self contained unit in the siren and an alligator clip for 12v at the battery. I agree though, bulldog is not very good.

I know a little bit about mech/elec stuff. dbrown, my Impreza are 2000, if possible, can you find me the color wiring diagram for the central look units? (like showen in the diagram from a link)

I got this alarm back in HK (I'm in Canada now) and sorry, no refund on it. Either I stick with this alarm or I'll have to buy a new one.

The pin switch should go to one of your trigger inputs.

you got the alarm from HK? are you from HK? i am from HK, anyway you need to purhcase a pin switch if you want to protect the hood, try to get a switch that is not made out of metal, i use a plastic pin switch that is included in the clifford remote start systems, alpine pin switch is good too, you don't have to drill a hole for the impreza, i used one of the rubber suppports on the passenger side of the car
