Anti-Theft integration
« on: February 08, 2015, 05:37:53 AM »

Hi,

In the installation instructions it suggests that the spare black wire is for optional anti-theft integration. Has anybody used this and what does the connection to the chip do?

That wire is to be tied into a triggered ground via the alarm. When that wire is grounded, the ECU is disabled. It interrupts the signal from the chip and without the data for the car to run, it will not start, cannot start and will never run unless that ground is removed or deactivated.

Ok - thanks for the reply. Now I know what it does it should fit in nicely with new alarm I'm installing. On the list of 'to do' this winter.
