No you dont have to diode isolate them at all just make sure you have your alarm set on them triggers to the proper Settings. Normally closed setting on both. =)
When in doubt....kick it!

Ive looked through the manual for the alarm, doesnt have anything for setting the hood/trunk to auto-closed. I dont think I tapped into the right wires for the hood or trunk, sometimes it shows closed and sometimes its open. Can i just run a wire all the way to the trunk and tap into the trunk trigger wire instead of @ bcm? and the same thing for the hood switch?
thanks!

HI There..  Great post, and install by the way ...I am thouroughly confused and stuck; have been for 2 weeks now.  Hope you can take the additional time to help a fellow out.

1) Can you possibly detail the wiring of your unlock trigger assembly (the one you made)

     a. The diode direction is not clear
     b. I can not understand why you need resistors
     c. Why 8 diodes instead of 4? ---I see only 2 wires in your pic ( colors of rears)?
 2) Where excactly and what wires did you tap?
     a. I have the car gutted, so I can access ANY wire ANYWHERE
     b. The wiring schematics online seem to contradict the dome light.   How did you trigger it?
     c.  I can not find the door triggers in the drivers sill.  They run from the sheath in the drivers kick panel, and I can access all of them.
3)  Did you diode protect any other wires.
4) is it neccesary to place a relay on the rear glass pop,   What polarity is it?

Thanks so much for the help

Tommy

heres a follow up to the install...

wired direct to the door pins with diodes.

remote locks/unlocks the car, as well as the alarm going off when any door is opened (except trunk...didnt wire)

now I have a battery drain problem....

once armed everything shuts down.  about 2 mins later, the done light comes on, and the stereo turns itself ion!.   It stays like that until battery drains.

if on a 02-05 explorer, i found that the ORANGE / light green wire needs to be tapped for the hatch release. This wire is in the passenger-rear sill. You need a relay for this as well.
For the radio/dome being on, maybe check you have the right wiring. I know one wire that I tapped into would turn on the radio and light with no key. I would say check your relay and/or 12+constant wires.
