Mobile Alert-Vehicle Alarm for 12-Volt Neg. Gnd. Systems
(490-0493)                 Installation, Electrical   Faxback Doc. # 40018

Electrical Hook-Up

1.  BLACK WIRE:  NEGATIVE GROUND

Crimp a "ring" terminal (included) on the BLACK wire and secure to any
ground (or to negative side of battery).  This must be a clean bare metal
contact point.

2.  BLUE WIRE:  + 12 VOLTS

Connect the BLUE wire to a continuous source of + 12 Volts.  Usually the
fuse block is the most convenient source.  Make sure the point selected has
+ 12 Volts even when the ignition is "OFF".

3.  RED WIRE:  IGNITION ACCESSORIES

Connect RED wire to the "Accessory" terminal in the fuse block. A selection
of male spade lugs is included to accommodate different makes of vehicles.

This wire must have + 12 Volts when ignition is "ON" and in the "ACC"
position.

RED WIRE TEST:

Turn ignition "ON".  When RED wire is wired correctly, the "IGN" light on
the module's face will light when the ignition key is in the "ON" or "ACC"
position and will be off otherwise.  Turn ignition "OFF".

4.  BROWN WIRE:  HOOD/TRUNK

The BROWN wire produces an "instant" alarm whenever the hood or trunk is
opened.  Perform the BROWN wire functional test after each switch is
connected.

NOTE:  Cut the BROWN hook-up wire into three or more lengths - one each for
       the trunk and hood switches and one for Step 6, later on.

Using the BROWN hook-up wire provided, crimp or solder the wire into the
male bullet terminals.  Insert this terminal into the end of the hood and
or trunk switches.

Insert the BROWN wire from the module into the solderless lug with the hook
-up wires from hood and or trunk switches and crimp wire ends together.

BROWN WIRE TEST:

Turn ignition "ON". The "IGN" light will come on.  When the BROWN wire is
wired correctly, the "HOOD/TRUNK" light will be off when both are closed.
Turn ignition "OFF".

NOTE:  The "HOOD/TRUNK" and "DOOR" lights are functional only when the
       ignition is "ON".

5.  GRAY AND VIOLET WIRES:  DOORS

NOTE:  Normally only the GRAY or VIOLET wire is used.  The unused wire
       should be snapped at or near the harness connector.  The wire selec-
       ted depends upon the wiring of the vehicle door switches as described
       below.

a.  GRAY WIRE: GENERAL MOTORS TYPE DOOR SWITCH

The GRAY wire is triggered by a grounding switch (commonly used in General
Motors products and most other vehicles) as the door is opened to start the
20-second entrance delay.  Connect the GRAY wire to the door switch wire or
to an under-dash courtesy light, if it exists.  Use splicer supplied.

b.  VIOLET WIRE: FORD TYPE DOOR SWITCH

The VIOLET wire is used on vehicle door switches that connect to + 12 Volts
when the door is opened (Ford Motor Company products, for example).  When
the VIOLET wire goes to + 12 Volts the 20-second entrance delay is init-
iated.  Connect the VIOLET wire to the door switch wire leading to the
courtesy or dome lights.  An under-dash courtesy light, if it exists, is
often the most convenient place to make this connection.  Use splicer
supplied.

VIOLET OR GRAY WIRE TEST:

Turn ignition "ON" to start test.  The "IGN" light will come on.  When the
GRAY or VIOLET wires are properly connected, the "DOOR" light on the mod-
ule's face will light when the door is open and will be off when the door is
closed.  If the indicator light behaves opposite, the incorrect wire (GRAY
or VIOLET) was selected to make the door connection.

SIREN TEST:

Connect negative (BLACK wire) siren lead to ground using one of the ring
terminals provided.  Momentarily touch positive (RED wire) siren lead to
+ 12 Volts.  Siren will sound.

6.  YELLOW WIRE:  SIREN

Connect female bullet terminal to a length of BROWN hook-up wire.  Add a
male bullet terminal to the positive (+) siren lead (RED wire) and join to
the BROWN wire.  Connect other end of BROWN wire to the YELLOW harness wire.
(To disable the alarm system during car wash, servicing, etc., simply dis-
connect the male and female bullet terminals or disconnect the wire harness
from the electronics module.)

7.  WHITE WIRE WITH RED STRIPE:  ARMING CHIRP

A brief audible signal which notifies you when the system is in the process
of arming may be accomplished by connecting this wire to + 12 Volts.  (This
can be the same point the BLUE wire in Step #2 is hooked to). If this option
is selected, the siren will "chirp" briefly after the ignition is switched
"OFF" and the last door closed.

8.  WHITE WIRE:  DISABLE MOTION DETECTOR

The motion detector is disabled if the WHITE wire is connected to ground.
