Alarm

Ok guys.

I have an 02 that has manuel locks and windows. I have heard of people putting alarm systems on their trucks with the same set up that I have. They also have them with power locks that are controlled my a remote only. So in other words you can use your alarm button to unlock/lock the doors.

What do I need to have this set up. I know I need door actuators (spelling).

What kind of alarm as well.

I've always wondered if those kits work or not, I think someone used just the lock version of that kit, speedin2.3 or something like that maybe?

It seems like a good deal if it works good. If it is I am going to buy it tonight.

Thanks for the heads up.

i would go with something that has an impact sensor, that kit is everything you need, it just looks cheap.

go with a code alarm or something.

Were could I get one and what are they called. They reason I like this is because it has the power locks and alarm. Do they make nicer ones of these kits?

plus an alarm, i would go with a code alarm, but thats just my personal preference.

some alarm systems come setup for 2-wire actuators others have two wires that are both positives, lock and unlock, in that case you will need the relay, unless you go with a 3-wire actuator, them are a little harder to find.

Do you mean needed or not needed when you are talking about the relay?

the kit you posted seems to be a great buy.. looks like everything you need... CarToys fixed me up right tho.. Clifford Arrow5 2 door system with trunk unlock (if i wanted a tailgate lock) for 350 installed.. 6 tone siren and door actuators that they linked directly to my remote such that pressing the lock function locks the doors and initiates alarm monitoring.. unlock key disengages alarm monitoring and unlocks doors..

i also took some plastic plates and a torch and melted the little plate on the actuator at an angle (ill get some pics) so that a thief using a slimjim, coathanger, etc. could not unlock the door... when he slides the slimjim straight down to the lock, he wont be able to hook the lock cuz the slimjim wil hit the plastic and slide off... i tried it and it works, pretty proud of myself on that one
