Thanks Howie II, I did exactly that. I will look for the diodes tomorrow.

Personally, I would upgrade your alarm to a 690xv or 5002 Viper Alarm. Gives you more options. Was this 350HV brand new? Hopefully nothing else is wrong with it.

Strangely enough JCS I was thinking the same thing. The 350 is very much an entry level product and really too basic to carry all those extra functions.
They market the even more basic Avital 3100 here and I'm sick of having to provide 3 1amp diodes for the ultrasonic, a 451 for the locks and 3 amp diodes for the Euro indicators!
Because of the parts and time consumption it's actually cheaper to supply a Viper 1002!
Which would have been my choice over the 350.
Suppose you added a 530t and trunk release, I doubt if you have enough aux outputs for them.

Thank you for your thoughts on that. I at one time had a 350hv and tried to hook a prox sensor up to the mux port. It would work initially with warn away but generally would skip right to instant trigger. I have come to the conclusion that the on board shock sensor may interfere with that port. Being that it is not diode isolated and on the same circuit. That is just my thought. So I have the 690xv.. the 508d is plugged into the brain..but I tapped the blue wire onto the green wire from the sensor side.. and freed up my blue wire leading to the brain which I connected my tilt sensor to. No problems. The 350v is just a basic alarm like you said.

I would also like to add that I've been installing Clifford Equipment since the early 90s when we gray imported the product (G2).
I'm not enamoured of DEI software, vastly preferring Clifford G5, faster response, easier to programme etc.
Having said that the failure rate over the last 20 years has been almost zero except recently, on-board immobiliser relays and the 5901 remotes.

Thanks for the advice guys. I had the 350hv installed one year ago this month and decided to get more modules for it recently. Viper documentation stated that the modules are supported so I figured well let me change this basic alarm to something advance and boom, the proximity sensor does not work correctly on the optional sensor port.

I've decided to get a better alarm and considering the viper 1002 or even better 5901.

Thanks again for all the help and advice.

If anyone remembers, I recently posted an issue with my 508D sensor and my 350HV alarm module. ( https://www.the12volt.com/installbay/forum_posts.asp?tid=122546&KW=350hv) It seems I am encountering the same issue with the 516T. I reconnected the 508D to the H1 harness and added the 516T there as well with the green wires between the two connected for the warning output, but I'm not getting any voice output. Also, what sort of sounds should the 516T generate? Mine only generates a tone when the full alarm is triggered. Am I doing something wrong again???

I just noticed what's happening now... apparently my vehicle is set to system armed with bypass notification. I was wondering all along where that second chip came from, after all it was when I installed the 508D and had to disconnect it from the door trigger since it reported my door being open on via dashbord light. It seems to cancel my warnings for the 508D and 516U.

how can I reset the alarm to defaults? while retaining my remotes...

ok guys, me again. I have the voice module working correctly. however I have an issue with the motion sensor again. on my vehicle the door trigger (-) seems to light dim if the alarm is not active, but when its active (on) the door light indicator gets bright like a door is open. very strange and this happened before and the only resolution was to unplug the motion sensor. I also noticed that the light would go off completely once the vehilce was turned on, but off it comes on... anyone assist? The isloation with the diodes seem to null the triggers on that connection too.
