i did a remote starter on an 03 ford windstar, and i ran across a problem with the accessory wires... every time the remote starter would engage, as soon as the accessory wire would power up the car would immediatly shut off, so without powering up the accessory wire the car would start just fine with the remote starter. the information i got from audiovox faxback was complety wrong on all the wire colors coming off the ignition switch, does anyone have the wiring info for this car? has anyone had this same problem with the car dying when the acc. wire powers up????

NOTE: This vehicle is equipped with PATS (Passive Anti Theft System). Use DEI module 555U to over-ride during remote start.  *1 When adding parking lights you must ground the BLACK/ green and interrupt the and tan/white to avoid feedback to the headlights. See direct fax document #1072 for wiring diagram.  *2 A diode must be placed in-line on this wire to avoid falsing problems. Cut the wire and put the cathode side away from the dome light, then tie the door trigger input on the cathode side on the BROWN / pink. On models with the puddle lamps on the doors, can also use ORANGE / white in a 20 pin plug at the FEM for door trigger. DO NOT USE THE ORANGE / WHITE FOR DOME LIGHT SUPERVISION.  *3 The FEM module is located under the drivers side of the dash on the firewall.  *4 There is a triple coil pack on the driver side of the engine. For tach use any of the following wires: pink/white, RED / lt blue, or blue/lt green.
