Knowledge of diodes,
is essential to being a proficient car alarm,
keyless entry, and remote start installer. These are often needed to interface with many
electrical sources in a vehicle such as power door locks, trunk release solenoids,
starter wires, OEM anti-theft systems, multiple door triggers, sliding doors, parking lights, head lights, horns, etc.
While many car alarms, keyless entrys, and remote starters have built-in relays and multiple outputs for
interfacing with most of these, more times than not you will still need to use at least one of these
when installing an alarm, keyless entry, and/or remote starter. Once you master
these, you'll think of all kinds of things to create and
add to your vehicles as well as your customers'.
