AN ALARM INTO A 1996-1999 CARAVAN / PLYMOUTH VOYAGER

This Tutourial Is Brought To You By Our Friend And Associate

THE ALARM I AM USING FOR THIS VEHICLE IS AN ATEK-2000

FIRST STEP IS TO UNPACK THE ALARM SYSTEM, NEXT YOU WILL WANT TO "PREP" THE ALARM, REMOVE ANY EXCESS OR THE UNUSED WIRES, IN THIS CASE SINCE THE VEHICLE WE ARE DOING IS NEG TRIGGER DOOR PIN WE WILL REMOVE THE VIOLET WIRE.YOU MAY ALSO REMOVE THE BLUE WIRE, THIS IS AN EXTRA SENSOR INPUT WIRE. NOW YOU EITHER WANT TO WRAP THE WIRE IN TAPE AND LEAVE ENOUGH WIRE OUT FOR THE INSTALLATION, OR AS SOME PEOPLE DO IS TWIST THE UNUSED WIRES IN PAIRS USING A DRILL , NOT TOO TIGHT THOUGH!

NEXT STEP IS TO REMOVE THE DRIVERS KICK PANEL , THEN REMOVE THE UNDERDASH/KNEE PANEL, THIS CAN BE DONE BY REMOVING THE PHILLIPS HEAD SCREWS.NOW WE SHOULD REMOVE THE MESHING THAT HIDES AND CONTAINS OUR IGNITION HARNESS WIRES! CARFEFULLY USING A RAZOR KNIFE SLICE AND REMOVE THIS COVERING. WE NOW HAVE THE WIRES EXPOSED THAT ARE NEEDED TO GET THE JOB DONE. FIRST WIRE I LIKE TO CONNECT IS THE GROUND WIRE,FIND A NICE FREE AREA TO GROUND THIS WIRE TO USING A SMALL RING TERMINAL AND SELF TAPPER SCREW(USUALLY IN THE KICK PANEL AREA)

NEXT THERE ARE 3 WIRES YOU CAN USE IN THIS VEHICLE HARNESS

CONSTANT+12V-- RED, PINK/BLACK, PINK

WHICHEVER WIRE OUT OF THESE 3 YOU DECIDE TO USE , STRIP ABOUT 1/8 INCH OF INSULATION FROM THIS WIRE AND I LIKE TO USE THE TEST LIGHT TO MAKE A SMALL HOLE IN THE WIRE, NEXT STRIP THE RED WIRE FROM YOU ALARM HARNESS AND PASS THE WIRE THROUGH THE HOLE IN THE CONSTANT +12V WIRE, THEN TAPE IT UP NICE AND TIGHT!

NEXT WIRE TO HOOK UP IS THE IGNITION WIRE , THIS IS YELLOW COMING FROM THE ALARM, FIND THE DARK BLUE WIRE THIS WIRE WILL LIGHT YOUR TEST LIGHT WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY FORWARD AND CRANKING! ATTACH THE YELLOW WIRE FROM THE ALARM TO THIS DARK BLUE WIRE IN THE SAME MANNER AS THE CONSTANT +12V. NEXT FIND THE YELLOW WIRE IN THE VEHICLE HARNESS, THIS WIRE IS THE STARTER WIRE, TEST IT WITH YOUR LIGHT, THIS WIRE SHOULD ONLY LIGHT YOUR TEST LIGHT WHEN U CRANK THE CAR. CUT THIS WIRE IN THE MIDDLE, STRIP BOTH ENDS OF THE YELLOW WIRE,

Starter Kill: (Requires a 30 amp relay) The Orange wire from the alarm harness will go to pin 86 on the relay, the key side of the yellow Starter Wire, will go to pins 30 & 85, and the motor side of the BLACK Starter Wire, will go to pin 87a. Your engine will start now but will not while the system is armed.

THE NEXT STEP IS TO HOOK UP OUR DOOR TRIGGER AND PARKING LIGHTS, THESE 2 WIRES COMING FROM THE ALARM ARE GREEN FOR YOUR DOOR TRIGGER(NEG INPUT) AND WHITE WIRE. FIRST FIND THE DOOR TRIGGER, IN THIS VEHICLE, THE DOOR TRIGGER IS BROWN/LT GREEN LOCATED IN A 36 PIN CONNECTOR, AT THE BODY CONTROL MODULE, THIS MODULE IS LOCATED AT THE FUSE BLOCK IN THE DRIVERS KICK. TEST THIS WIRE WITH YOUR TEST LIGHT, YOUR TEST LIGHT WILL ONLY LIGHT WHEN YOU PUSH IN THE PIN SWITCH AND GO OUT WHEN IT IS RELEASED.ATTACH THE ALARMS GREEN WIRE TO THIS WIRE!

NEXT, LETS FIND THE PARKING LIGHT WIRE,ON THIS VEHICLE, THE WIRE WE ARE LOOKING FOR IS A LT.GREEN/RED, THIS WIRE CAN BE FOUND AT THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH. FOR THIS VEHCLE WE MUST USE A RELAY TO CONVERT THE +12V PARKING LIGHT OUTPUT TO A NEGATIVE. USE A 30A RELAY , FIRST TAKE THE ALARM WHITE WIRE CONNECT IT TO PIN 85 OF THE RELAY, NEXT ATTACH ANOTHER GROUND WIRE LIKE YOU DID FOR THE ALARM MAIN GROUND, ATTACH THIS WIRE TO PINS 86 AND 30 ON THE RELAY, NEXT FIND THAT LT.GREEN/RED WIRE AT THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH , STRIP BACK SOME INSULATION(BEING VERY CAREFULL NOT TO BREAK WIRE) AND ATTACH A PIECE OF WIRE FROM THIS TO PIN 87 OF THE RELAY. NOW YOU HAVE FINISHED THE PARKING LIGHTS!!

NOW ITS TIME FOR THE DOOR LOCKS!!

ON THIS VEHICLE WE DONT HAVE 2 WIRES LIKE MOST CARS, THIS VEHICLE HAS ONE WIRE. OKAY FIRST LETS FIND THIS WIRE! THE WIRE WE ARE LOOKING FOR IS A WHITE/DK GREEN , LOCATED IN A BLACK CONNECTOR IN THE DRIVERS KICK PANEL, OR AT THE BODY CONTROL MODULE AS SHOWN IN THE DIAGRAM ABOVE. NOW FIND YOUR 2 DOOR LOCK WIRES THAT COME FROM YOUR ALARM HARNESS, THESE ARE THE BLUE/WHIE (UNLOCK) AND GREEN/WHITE (LOCK) BOTH THESE WIRES ARE NEGATIVE OUTPUT, NEXT STEP IS TO GO TO RADIO SHACK AND PICK UP TO RESISTORS ONE IS A 1.5K OHM RESISTOR AND A 249 OHM RESISTOR. OKAY NOW THAT WE HAVE THE RESISTORS, FIRST THING IS TO TAKE THE 1.5K OHM RESISTOR AND ATTACH ONE END OF THE RESISTOR TO THE GREEN/WHITE WIRE, AND THE OTHER END TO THE VEHICLES WHITE/DK GREEN WIRE. NOW TAKE YOUR 249 OHM RESISTOR AND DO THE SAME ONLY WITH THE BLUE/WHITE WIRE THIS TIME, ATTACHING IT ALSO TO THE WHITE/DK.GREEN WIRE. *NOTE THE 2 RESISTORS MUST HAVE A TOLERANCE OF 5%!*

LETS MOVE TO THE SIREN, THIS GETS MOUNTED IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT USING SELF TAPPERS, YOU CAN GROUND YOUR SIREN EITHER NEAR THE SIREN OR BRING BOTH WIRES INTO THE VEHICLE. USE A GROMMET IN THE FIREWALL TO GET THE WIRES INSIDE, MAKE A SMALL HOLE IF U HAVE TO (BEING VERY CAREFULL NOT TO PUNCTURE ANYTHING!!) NOW HOOK UP YOUR RED SIREN WIRE TO THE BROWN WIRE ON THE ALARM!

OKAY WE ARE ALMOST DONE.

LETS FIND A SPOT TO MOUNT OUR LED, FIND AN EMPTY SPACE TO THE LEFT OF THE STEERING COLUMN ON THE DASH TO MOUNT THIS , USING A 1/4 HOLE. ONCE YOU MOUNT THE LED, SNAKE THE WIRE DOWN TO THE ALARM AND PLUG IT IN TO THE BRAIN!

NEXT LETS MOUNT THE VALET SWITCH, I LIKE TO USE THE KICK PANEL, TO MOUNT IT UP HIGH. MAKE SURE IT WONT INTERFERE WITH ANYTHING. DRILL A 5/16 HOLE AND MOUNT IT! PLUG THE VALET SWITCH INTO THE ALARM BRAIN! LAST BUT NOT LEAST MOUNT THE SHOCK SENSOR, I PREFER TO MOUNT THIS TO THE STEERING COLUMN WITH ZIP TIES!

NOW LETS GO OVER ALL THE WIRES TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE TIED UP NICE AND SECURE AND WONT INTERFERE WITH ANY MOVING PARTS IN THE UNDERDASH! PUT THE DASH BACK TOGETHER AND TEST THE ALARM, YOU MAY WANT TO ADJUST YOUR SHOCK SENSOR B4 PUTIING THE DASH BACK TOGETHER!

THATS IT YOUR DONE!!!
SEE THAT DIDNT HURT ONE BIT!!!
GOOD LUCK !!
