I just installed the alarm system for my 02 Civic EX 2DR. All went well except I don't know how to install the pin switch for the trunk. (The trunk has to be released using the button inside the car; it's not factory remote controlled trunk release)
Here is what I did: I tapped the signal (red cable from the green connector from driver side kick panel) to the alarm system (grey) so that it will trigger when the trunk is forced open? I checked with the voltmeter, trunk closed (+12V), trunk opened (-). I activated the AUX output from the alarm system already. But when I opened the trunk using the pull switch inside the car, the alarm did not go off.
My alarm is Crime guard 350i5. It has the AUX. output where the trunk release trigger can be connected to according to the diagram.
I'd appreciate any help from the experts.
Car: 2002 Honda Civic EX 2DR.
Alarm system: Crime guard 350i5

I think you are very confused. The trunk trigger is to make the alarm sound, the AUX wire is to open the trunk remotely. 2 different things. You should connect the trunk trigger wire to the negative trigger wire on your alarm, which is blue....

If you want to monitor the trunk with the alarm, install a pin switch or there is a red (-) wire at the OEM alarm that is the OEM trunk pin.

Ok I am more confused now. Let me see if I can get myself straight here.
1. For the door triggers, should I connect the Green from the alarm to BOTH the driver door trigger Green (-) and Passenger door trigger Light Green.Red (-)
2. For the trunk trigger, should I connect the BLUE from the alarm to the RED cable from the green connector (driver side kick panel)?
Thanks for your help guys, I am a total noob in this alarm thing.

In the trunk, is there a light that illuminates when you open the trunk?

Yes that's the red cable.

For door pins, do the following but isolate with diodes..
The factory alarm plug is a green plug above the drivers kick panel. The drivers door trigger is green, front passenger door trigger is lt. GREEN/ red, and the rear door trigger is GREEN / WHITE.

Here is what I just did and all the doors and the trunk worked:
1. For the door triggers, I connect the Green from the alarm to BOTH the driver door trigger Green (-) and Passenger door trigger Light Green.Red (-)
2. For the trunk trigger, I connected the BLUE from the alarm to the RED cable from the green connector (driver side kick panel)
Someone has mentioned using a diodes. Do I need them? So far all seems to work fine for me.
Thanks for all your help.

Is there a display on your dash that shows which door is open?  If so, notice that if you open either door, it will now illuminate both driver and passenger on that display.

If the manufacturer has 2 different wires, there is a specific reason for doing so, you should isolate with diodes not to change the OEM settings.
