need alarm install help...trying to get this done before 6pm

Violet wire - positive door switch sensing input
this wire is the positive trigger input wire for positive door switch. this wire is connection for "positive" type factory door pins (typical ford motor) locate the common wire for all door pins and make the connection of the violet wire here.

what the heck is that? is it even on our cars? i have the negative door switch connected allready.

blue wire- ground instant trigger input
this is the wire for the hood pin switch. do i need to have that connected for the alarm to work? im trying to get this thing done by 6 and this involves me putting the car together and going to get a plunger type switch from advance and i just dont have the time for that at this point.

You don't need either. Thieves would be able to raise the hood and not trigger the alarm though. You could always run the wire to where you are going to put the switch and hook it up later.

The door trigger is a NEGATIVE trigger.
You can just ignore the positive-trigger wire.

The blue instant trigger is for the trunk, you can tap into a wiring-harness at the left-rear behind the C-pillar for the factory trunk-light switch, so you don't need to drill a hole and mount a pin-switch.


Hope it helps.

Most of the wiring are easy, except for the dome-light, parking-light flash and trunk trigger, since you have to tap into the factory wiring harness in order to do a clean job, and figuring-out which wire and where to tap it at could be tricky.

As I've said, the trunk instant trigger can be tapped at the harness behind the driver's-side C-pillar.

Dome-light can be tapped on the wiring harness that goes into the harness behind the fuse-panel.

Parking-light flash can be tapped on the wiring harness in the steering column.

IMHO it does not make any sence to install a alarm that does not have a trigger right next to the battery area on the hood. Most alarms have a wire for negative trigger and positive trigger. You only use one. You wire the instant trigger to the trunk and the hood using the same wire.

I think you are trying to use too many of the alarms wires. Many alarms are set up for either negative ground systems or positive ground systems. You only use one of them. I am tired and going from memory but the nissan is a negative triggering system. So you would just cap the positive one and not use it at all.
