If you're connecting at the alarm module - you want the red wire from the siren to go to the brown wire on the alarm(the one that's in a plug with 12 or so other wires), not the red (red wire is the constant power input to the alarm).

Hello... sorry to hear you are having a problem. Is this a system from the factory or an aftermarket alarm? Did you just purchase the car with this problem or did you just install it/have it installed?

I just installed a prestige aps787c in my 1993 pathfinder today. The unit doesn't respond to any function of the remote. When I turn the ignition to the on position, the horn beeps and the siren...

There could be several issues: make sure that you have a constant 12 volt source on the fused red wires of the 787. Make sure that you have a good ground for the 787. Make sure that the antenna is plugged in. For programming it is absolutely necessary that the blue wire at the six pin plug of the 787 is connected to the vehicles ignition wire(12 volts at on, crank and run).

For reference: the ignition wire is black with white, the starter wire is black with yellow, the second starter wire is black with yellow, the accessory wire is black with blue and the battery wire is white with black.

Note: for the second starter; use the optional 4 pin plug of the 787. Connect the pink wire to the second starter wire of the vehicle and program it for starter output.

If every thing seems to be working right, but no sound, the the siren has gone out. Replace siren and that should take care of your problems.

How do i take out the factory stereo for a 2008 mazda 6, in order to install an after market amp?
Hi Lo Adapters
Hi/Low adapters are devices that installers use to convert a speaker level stereo to RCA levels so it can be hooked to an external car stereo amplifier. You can cut the speaker wires and hook the hi/lo adapter right up or you can tap onto existing speaker wires without cutting them so the speakers still play while the tap gives you a connection to the hi/lo device for adding something like a subwoofer amp to the existing speakers.... We have hi lo converters in TWO CHANNEL and FOUR CHANNEL configurations and we have them WITH and WITHOUT adjustments.. The adjustable hi/lo converters allow you to fine tune the hi/lo device to match other levels in the car or to make sure the match between your stereo and amplifier is a good match.. The adjustable line converters are the most popular.. We also have some specialty hi lo converters that have special radio plugs on them that may plug right into your factory stereo.
Now you can install an amplifier with your factory radio or install a new radio with your factory amplifier!

Try going to the nearest Walmart. They have cable harness adapters for all Makes of Cars there. You need to find the one that goes to your car then you will need some **** splices, and a crimping tool. You have to connect the wires from the cable harness to the wires that come from the back of the new car stereo you're wanting to install. You may also need a dash kit which they also sell at Walmart for cars. The wiring is pretty easy, red to red, black to black, the wires with a color and a stipe are the speaker wires. The ones with a black stripe are the neg. and the solid colors are positive. Ex. purple/puple with back stipe. There will be 2 sets of speaker wires for every speaker in the car either 4 or 6. Try that out and see how it goes.
