I want to make my own window-roll-up-when-armed "module" I have a few drawings on how i want to do this. I'll post a picture/schematic soon. I plan on using channel 4 (up) and 5 (down) outputs to control relays to control the window motors.
Well third time's a charm, I guess. Why would you make your own module? The DEI 530T is not that expensive, and its safety features have surely got to be more reliable than something that you make yourself. I believe it measures load resistance to determine when the window is up or down, with changeable settings. Maybe you've got something up your sleeve to determine this, but setting up a timer is not the best of choices. I guess your other option is just to have the window move only while holding down the remote button, but the $30-$40 for a 530T is well worth it in my limited experience.

Just Curious...what did you do with the purple and the green wires, because you do interrupt the starter wire with those two.  That's the way you get the starter kill hooked up.  Cut the starter this case you cut it after the fuse box as stated in the tech info, then go about hooking up the purple wire to the starter side of the wire and the green wire to the key side(fuse box in this case) of the wire.  Test the wire, but it should be the BLACK/ white wire.  if this is incorrect, somebody will correct it but i'm pretty sure that's what you need to do.

StarterBLACK/ White Cut after Fuse Panel, not at Ignition Switch 

...half of the truth can be worse than a lie. <----Roger Russell said that..

Nothing personal, but the wiring info in the previous post is wrong. The BLACK/ white starter wire should be cut BETWEEN the key switch and the fusebox, not fusebox and starter(this causes a check engine light).
Directwire and my personal experience verify that.

I have to double check the way I have things wired. But right now, i do not know which color from the Remote Start relay i have attatched to the starter wire but the starter wire is NEVER interupted... it was cut, but spliced back together, just with another wire from the relay...
I think i understand what you're saying though. I'll look into that..
Yeah, thats true. I enjoy the good feeling after accomplishing something like that. I may/probly will end up just buying the module... :( :)
I tested the Viper 5900's range this afternoon on the Airpark's runway. I was able to get .6 mi... not bad, but not what's advertised. The runway had a bump in it, killing my line of sight, but still, i feel that I should be able to get a mile out of it. :) I'm gonna play with antenna positions.
