On most fire alarm panels there are normally open and normally closed relays that will change state in the event of a fire. The negative power line can be ran through these relays to allow the maglock to be powered down in the event of a fire. The relay on the fire panel may need to be programmed to do this or it may come programmed by default which is usually the case. Hope this helps.

Your iStar panel is for the door access control system. On many of these systems there is an input for fire door releasing functions. If so, you would just need a set of dry alarm contacts from the fire system to shunt the door power.
Otherwise, the solution above will work.

My hatch won't release from the remote or the door switch. No solenoid sound at the hatch. How do I get it to open if it's not a bad fuse?


There are actually three relays , an there are controlled by the BCM - body control module !
When a door lock switch is activated in the lock or unlock position the BCM will receive a voltage signal on either the door lock switch lock or unlock signal circuits.
The BCM, upon receipt of a lock switch lock or unlock signal, will switch the appropriate lock relay control circuits to battery positive voltage. This will energize the appropriate lock or unlock relays. The relay will supply voltage to the door lock actuator lock or unlock control circuits to one side of the lock actuator. Since the opposing side of the lock actuators are connected to ground through the other lock actuator control circuit and the normally closed contacts of the lock or unlock relay, the doors and liftgate will then lock or unlock appropriately.
Three relays are used to operate the locks. DRV DR UNLCK relay, PASS DR UNLOCK and DR LCK relay. This is done to isolate the driver door lock actuator so it can be unlocked by itself using the keyless entry transmitter.
Rear Hatch/Gate Description and Operation
The liftgate can be opened by operating the switch on the instrument panel. Battery voltage is supplied to the liftgate actuator through the body control module (BCM). The BCM will pulse the liftgate actuator when a release input is received through the key fob, or the instrument panel switch.
Door/Lift gate Latch Assembly
  1. Install a 20-A fused jumper wire between the control terminal 3 and 12 volts. Install a jumper wire between the ground terminal 2 and ground.
  2. Verify the actuator turns on & off.
?‡'
If the function does not perform as specified, replace the applicable door latch.

How do I activate the alarm on my Dodge


The 4103 is not an alarm. It's a remote starter with keyless entry! Do you want the horn to sound when locking and unlocking? First, make sure that the horn wire was connected. Press and hold the lock button on the remote. That should activate the panic/car finder. The horn will begin to sound. Press and release the lock button to turn it off.

If the horn is connected and, you want said horn to sound when locking and unlocking, open door, turn ignition on then off, press and hold programming switch until the horn chirps once. Release programming button, press and release programming one time then, press and hold programming button. While holding the programming button press and release unlock button on remote. You should hear two chirps from the unit. Release programming button, turn ignition on to exit programming, Test system.

How do I connect a sm120X to an alarm panel?


this isn't a job for an amateur or handyman, if done incorrectly can cause system failure when needed to operate during smoke condition. If this relay module is needed to be installed to active an alarm or similar, which I recommend, get a professional. Failure is not an option when dealing with fire / smoke detection.

I recently replace the battery in my 2005 Ford Mustang GT. After I installed the new battery the green light for my dealer installed alarm keeps flashing even when I am driving the car. I went to the...


                Hi
                Before Battery Change

                • When was/or when did you notice alarm green light illuminated?

                • When after alarm was disarmed, did green light shine?

                First thing to check would be electrical connections starting from the battery.
                1. Follow positive wire lead from battery to fuse box connections. (Should be along driver side frame rail, or near battery.)
                2. Follow wrie harness to Relay Center. (Find Alarm Relay/Fuse)
                3. Also to Power Distribution Center. (upper driver corner engine bay)
                Relay Switch and Fuse to Alarm should be okay, given the alarm green light illumination.

                The Cars Brain, ECM Engine Control Module, manages messeges between power BattV and Alarm, also other modules and various sensors throughout the vehicle.

                When Battery Supply was disconnected, something happened, that stunned the memory in the ECM.

                Yes, the alarm does need resetting, its actually the memory messages saved in ECM need to be Refreshed.

                (saying "alarm needs resetting") sounds like alarm is broken, when that is not the case. Similar scenario is, when smart phone screen webpage freezes(alarm memory info in ECU). No buttons work, not even power button (Key Fob control). Only way to gain access is to remove battery.

                Lets try an experiment, this will be to loose still/saved frozen information, stuck in computer memory.

                How to Reset Vehicle Computer.

                1. Remove Neggative Post connection.
                2. Remove Positive Post connection.
                3. Let vehicle sit over Two Minutes, this time allows capacitors in vehicle Modules (ECM/PCM, TCM), to release any/all stored voltage, also any voltage in Vehicles ground circuit will be released.
                  • (I would typically wait 15 minutes) Capacitors with out constant Voltage input, will disipate rather quickly, depending on capacity size.
                4. With Battery Still Disconnected. Open Driver Car door, and turn Ignition to RUN Position.
                5. Reconnect Positive Post.
                6. Reconnect Negative Post.
                  • IGNITION is in RUN Position, when reconnecting Battery. Driver Door Is Open.

                  7. Turn Ignition to Off.
                  • Notice if alarm green light is illuminated.

                  8. Hit LOCK Button On Driver Door Switch to Reinitialize Alarm.
                  • Be SURE Key Fob not locked in car.

Where to connect fire alarm to a combination starter with a hand/off/auto/switch


The fire alarm (usually an open contact, held closed during healthy operation) MUST go in series with the supply to the switch. This is normally incoming to a terminal which is linked between the hand and auto positions. If this is a full control panel, the fire alarm connection SHOULD be used to drop out the entire control circuit. Can you supply wiring diagram?

Electronic lock/unlock not working


Apparently the "LOCK" function is working normally because the burglar alarm is being activated when you 'lock' the car. Is this right?
The fact the engine won't start when the burglar alarm is activated is NORMAL If the doors will not UNLOCK front the driver's door manual switch, I believe you have a bad DOOR UNLOCK relay in the control module.
