    I might do this on other vehicles, but this was a mammoth undertaking with all the pictures and uploading, and all the typing Im about to do, I hope somebody uses it, maybe itll be stickied. Please dont reply to this for awhile so its all together and looks good(Matt)
    Once everything is out the box, unwrapped and undone, you can start taking away the wires you dont need
    [​IMG]

    this install didnt use a module to lock the doors as I was adding actuators, but I did shorten the controls wires to the 451m doorlock module
    [​IMG]

    wires wrapped and waitting for solder
    [​IMG]

    Prewired and put in place behind the speedo cluster
    [​IMG]

    Th siren wires wrapped
    [​IMG]


    The start of the fun

    A great place for the LED if you dont have fog lights, if you do, do this somewhere else.
    [​IMG]

    You have to squeeze the LED some to loosen it up
    [​IMG]

    This is what you have once you pull the end off
    [​IMG]

    Twist the wires so the divider doesnt come loose and short out the alarm
    [​IMG]

    Drill a 1/8 hole where you want it and insert the LED. Something like ultra high temp glue might be needed to keep it
    in there.
    You can snap this back together and leave the excess in the panel.
    [​IMG]

    This is what it looks like done
    [​IMG]
    and the light on
    [​IMG]

    and the underdash

    theres 2 screws to take it out, both 7mm
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    also take out the 4 7mm screws that hold in the speedo cluster
    [​IMG]

    This is the harness on the cluster you need to unplug, also the best place to get a tach signal, at the white wire, and VSS, the green/white wire
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    then your left with this. Take out the 4 10mm nuts that hold in the knee bolster
    [​IMG]

    and this is what your left with

    Re: How to Install an Alarm in a 99-07

    for running wires under the hood

    pull this piece out from under the dash, its just a plastic nut and kinda wiggle it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    then release the clips to pop this out
    [​IMG]

    and you have this grommet
    [​IMG]

    heres the tool I use. Its from Textron and its called a grommet poker
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    here it is in the grommet
    [​IMG]

    and from the other side
    [​IMG]

    A nice hidden spot for the siren. Remove the radiator to grill shroud
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    A few bolts,10mm
    [​IMG]

    pop from the sides
    [​IMG]

    and the other clips
    [​IMG]

    this is what your left with
    [​IMG]

    Do a little trimming and mount the siren
    [​IMG]

    put it all back together
    [​IMG]

    and another location. This is where Id do the battery back-up siren, or vice versa
    [​IMG]

    and the wiring done under the hood with some loom, ok minus the power wire. This would also be the time to do the pinswitch, I forgot to take pics of that.

    Re: How to Install an Alarm in a 99-07

    different connections for the alarm and remote start under the steering wheel

    First I pull the insulation back with strippers
    [​IMG]

    then I push a sharp object like a pick tool through the middle
    [​IMG]

    then a larger one like a scratch awl
    [​IMG]

    then insert the wire, close the hole
    [​IMG]

    and wrap the new wire around the old
    [​IMG]

    This is after I ran the wire through and then zip tied it, before solder and tape
    [​IMG]

    and cut the starter wire in half if your doing starter kill. Make its connections and your done
    [​IMG]

    Heres some of the BCM connections for lights, dome light sup and others
    [​IMG]

    and here they are all taped up and pretty

    [​IMG]

    the actuator mounted
    [​IMG]

    Re: How to Install an Alarm in a 99-07

    Not on passlock II trucks. From what I've read, you hook the lock/unlock outputs from the brain to the passlock bypass (457g/1700g etc.) then just connect the purple "data output" wire from the bypass to the purple wire at the truck's diagnostic port. That right Scott?

    Passlock II is the immobilizer on teh truck, not the doorlocks. Lock/unlock goes from the brain of the alarm to a databus module, then to the violet wire in the OBD port.

    great writeup, just what I needed to undertake this project myself!!!

    maybe you could add a basic list of wire colors to tap into for the less electrically inclined....:D seems like the install was done on a NBS work truck from the pictures. Who makes those door actuators?

    Since this is a GM site, and since a lot of GM's are diesels, why don't you change the "not used" on the wait to start wire to what it really should be?
