Auto ignition keyless start, wiring

I am having a spy alarm installed in my 2005 Dodge Durango. There is an orange wire that wraps about 5-7x around a high coil -
where does this go in my 2005 Durango since my Durango doesn't have a high coil?

I bought a Spy brand one-way car alarm/remote start for my wife's 09 Camry. Everything is installed, and works except for the remote start.

Installations of this nature are usually reserved for professionals. However, get out your installation manual. You will also need two single pulse double throw relays and some diodes. First you will need to locate the ground when running.This wire might be labeled " (-) third ignition". The first relay for the starter will be wired like so: starter wire to 86, fused 12 volts to 87, 30 out to vehicle second starter wire, 85 to ground when running. The second relay will be wired 86 to vehicle ignition, 87 to fused 12 volt, 30 out to second ignition, and 85 to ground when running.

Spy 5000m remote start issues

You need to adjust the tachometer sensing wire, it usually wraps around a spark plug wire so I can sense when the car starts. On my spy alarm, the wire was grey. Hope this helps.

Where does the orange armed wire hook up at on my 2001 dodge durango

The orange wire applys a negative ground output only while the system is armed (when you press the lock button), the wire will then go dead when you press unlock. The orange wire can be used to enable a starter kill relay if desired. If your Durango has the factory immobiliser chip in the key then a starter kill relay would be redundant and not required. So it is only an option.

Jun 28, 2009 | Remote Starter with Keyless Entry

1 Answer

Purchased a Thor Alarm with door locks and autostart and trunk release I believe model CF425 and was curious if anyone had a wiring diagram not sure what each wire is. One harness has 12 wires the other...

I have this alarm / remote start / keyless entry system and I have the poorly translated installation manual. Everything in mine installed fine in my 2005 suzuki aerio (except the power locks as the manual is worthless in that area) but I have heard nothing but horror stories from others online since I installed it.

I don't recommend you install it but if you really are determined, here is what the manual says (or tried to say and I spent 4 hrs interpretting / correcting it:

8 wire harness:
-- The 4 wire connector connects to the 4 wires harness part of the 3 relays
-- The yellow connects to the yellow of the breaker relay yellow
-- yellow w/black stripe connects to the oil sensor on the motor (look for single wire connected to sensor and generally a heat shield wrap/weave, mine was blue)
-- orange connects to the brake switch on the brake pedal
-- the blue connects to the door switch /dome light trigger

12 wire harness:
-- 6 central locking wires orange, yellow, and white plus the same 3 with black stripe.. Unfortunately the manual is not clear as to where they connect. The next page of the manual shows diagrams but they mysteriously add a white stripe to all the colors and the white wires apparently become green. I suspect that orange is not likely used in most installations and for positive door lock types (the most popular), yellow goes to unlock and yellow w/ black stripe goes to lock signal and the 2 whites go to 12v+. This is only a guess so don't hold me to it.
-- black is grounded to frame
-- Red is 12v+
-- red w/ black stripe goes to power trunk release (if equipped)
-- The 2 browns go to the left and right turn signals
-- The pink goes to the alarm

Ignition switch connections
The breaker relay:
-- blue goes to the ACC ON wire
-- Cut the ignition wire and connect the 2 greens to each end
-- Yellow connects to the yellow of the 8 wire harness

The 3 relays:
-- 4 wire harness connects to the 4 wire connector of the 8 wire harness
-- the 3 reds connects to the 12v+ red of the ignition switch (or thru the firewall to the battery)
-- black connects to the ignition on the downstream side of the 2 greens of the breaker relay
-- white connects to ACC ON
-- blue connects to the starter

Spy car alarm manual

Forget the advice on how to steal a car. It's pointless and does nothing to answer your question. I suppose alicantecoli is proud of his abilities (I used to be too, but I don't do that anymore), however he is a fool if he thinks a 2-Way alarm is useless. While it may only take him minutes to disarm the alarm (waaaaay too long), with a 2-Way system & GPS tracking it would only take me seconds to find it again. Or you could use the silent alarm feature, allow the car to be stolen and immobilise it in the middle of the road. Beside all of this, a simple set of relays properly wired to monitor the alarm system power status can turn those few minutes into an hour or two. Anyway, to your question.

The install manual for the (rebranded) Spy 2-Way Car Alarm is a pathetic chinglish translation printed on a single sheet. It would do you no good unless you have some experience with electronics, and a working knowledge of your car's wiring. That being said, here's the wire colours for you:

6-Pin Connector:
Purple : A/C
Brown: On
Yellow: Start
Red: 12v+
Black: 12v-

12-Pin Connector:
Central Locking - it depends on the type as to how you wire it...
Yellow: Nc
Y/Black: No
White: Com
W/Black: Com
Orange: Nc
O/Black: No

Brown: Flash Lights
Brown2: Flash Lights
R/Black: Trunk/boot release
Red: Siren

8-Pin Connector:
Red: Window roll-up
Green: Side-door + trigger
Blue: Side-door - trigger
Yellow: Engine cut-off
White: Acc
Orange: Foot-brake
Purple: Handbrake
Grey: Start-sensing

2-Pin White: LED
2-Pin Black: Temp. Sens.
3-Pin White: Shock Sens.
3-Pin Black: Microwave Sens.
These four plug in in this order: 2PW, 3PB, 2PB, 3PW

Inside the unit (under the sliding cover on the top) there are three jumper settings: Elec/Pneu CL, Lights Flash/No Flash, Auto-arm/No auto. The first of each pair is the default setting.

Hope this helps. That, honestly, should be all you need. If you do need more info, then please DO NOT TRY TO INSTALL THIS ITEM YOURSELF. As it says on the manual, "Install the system by a professional people."
