I have a Viper 5901 alarm/remote start in my truck that I'm looking to ramp up the security on.
I currently have the built in shock sensor, glass break sensor, backup battery, and the external "armed" light.
I also have a tilt sensor I plan on running inside the toolbox and I ordered the proximity sensor as well for in the cab.
I have the included siren mounted inside the rear door, which is nice that it can't be disable easily, but of course limits the sound, so I have ordered a real motor driven siren that will be mounted in an undisclosed location (just kidding I actually haven't decided where it will go)
In addition I will be getting security bolts for my sub and amp so they cant be removed with a standard screwdriver.
reason being both my friends had their cars broken into in their new apt, after being there like a week, and since I'll be there a lot on weekends i'm not looking to take any chances. OK so one of them left their car unlocked but still..
Now the question. I am wanting to I guess trigger both sirens and also my hazard lights with the alarm activated. I know I will need a relay to do this. But is the brown wire (siren output) a constant voltage that I can use as a trigger? just wasn't sure if it had a variable current or anything to control the siren, if it is all controlled by the siren itself. Or if a varying current even matters in a relay.
And in case anyone is wondering, I am wiring into hazard lights with the trigger because the 5901 brain's parking light output (white) is dead.
here is a link to the install guide:
I will also document my progress...
