I would go to an electrical supply house and tell them what size wires that I wanted to connect. They sell a u-bolt that would work pretty well for splicing the big cable back together. You would have to tape it up with electrical tape.

How do I remove alarm brain box from wiring on a

"I bypassed the immobilizer circuit only on my alarm module (which is really tedious). Bypassing the whole
module is possible (and little easier), but you will lose the use of the remotes and the ability to arm the alarm.
The alarm module in my '97 900 SETC is located under the carpet, below the driver's power seat switches (a
pain to get at).
If you want to bypass the module completely:
1. Disconnect the battery (make sure you know the radio code-if needed)
2. Unplug the connector from alarm module and remove module from car
3. Install a wire jumper between pin 8 and pin 20 in the connector
4. Install a wire jumper between pin 9 and pin 21 in the connector
5. Install a wire jumper between pin 10 and pin 22 in the connector
6. Wrap securely with electrical tape
If you want to bypass the immobilizer circuit only:
1. Disconnect the battery (make sure you know the radio code-if needed)
2. Unplug the connector from the alarm module
3. Cut the following wires from the back of the connector and splice together as follows (Don't cut the wires too
close to the connector, because someday down the road you may want install a new module, so you'll have to
reverse this process):
4. Cut the wires to pin 8 and pin 20 and splice together w/ wire nut
5. Cut the wires to pin 9 and pin 21 and splice together w/ wire nut
6. Cut the wires to pin 10 and pin 22 and splice together w/ wire nut
7. Secure all with electrical tape
8. Reconnect the connector to the module
Not knowing the details of your problem, please be aware that this may, or may not, solve it. Good luck and let
me know how you make out."

I have a 2002 trailblazer. ..A couple weeks ago I came home to find that my battery had been stolen . They took it by cutting all the wires that led to battery. I replaced the wiring harness and I'm...

If you don't have power to the starter or headlights, they may have blown a major fuseable link. You'll need to track the power from the positive battery post to the main fuses. Also make sure the battery is grounded to the frame and also the engine.

Negative battery terminal

normally there is only one earth wire on a battery as all units earth through this wire to the negative terminal. I would not bother trying to reconnect the cut wires as this will lead to problems further on. Go to a wrecker that handles you model vehicle and get the positive terminal wiring loom and replace all the cut wires . Leave the negative terminal off while you are doing this.

Hi, I have a 1995 Toyota 4runner... That said, I'm

Well if they were able to cut this wire, I am assuming they were able to get into the car? But if your dad can open the hood and take the negative wire cable off of the battery then he can bridge the wire that was cut, hopefully.

He will need a small wire clamp kit that they can get at an AutoZone or Atuo Parts store. After he fixes the wire that was cut, he will need to disconnect the positive wire cable from the battery and then reconnect both of them. that should keep the alarm from going back off, however it may reset the system. Either way if he has the spare remote they should be back in business and can get your care moved and the alarm to work again.

Good Luck!

1998 jeep wrangler.will start fine for a day or two then will not start, I leave it for a short time and it starts. I have cheched the red wire going to the coil and I'm getting no power to the coil. Also...

Just a few things to check...... Is there oil pressure showing when you crank the motor? Some of the computer systems will cut power to the igntion system if no pressure is sensed, the sender may be faulty.
They are also known to corrode inside the battery cables which would cause many odd things, as you stated when you disconnect & reconnect the battery it works= check these good. also is the battery ok?
Another possibilty is the igntion switch is faulty. Hope this will lead you to the cause.
