You will need to follow what I posted above using either 5A diodes or relays and I prefer the constant light output for remote start indication, lights will still flash when locking or unlocking. Flashing the Bosch lights is not good for there longevity either. Using diodes is less wiring and parts as the unit can handle up 15A positive output. The way you have it now you are risking frying the light control in the Code Alarm powering all those lights.

Thank you so much for the help. Then I have ordered some diodes.
I hope I can ask you one more question.
I thought all was good, but it might have done some damages wired the way it was. All of a sudden the Montero Sport are missing one rear left tail light. The right one is still there. The strange thing is that there is 12 volt to the lamp socket, but when I insert a bulb, the 12 signal drops out. It comes back when I remove the bulb.
I have no disconnected the Code Alarm waiting for the diodes, so thats not the problem at this point.
What could cause this?

Sounds like blown dedicated fuse #3 10 Amp. Grounds are tied after tail, so with no bulb you can registrar 12v from right hand tail to chassis ground. Putting bulb re connects everything connected between right ground and fuse if blown. If fuse is good. One other thing is to make sure bulb filament isn't broken and shorted to the other inside the bulb, since it is a combination lamp/tail.

Fuse is not blown. Tried 3 different bulbs, also the one bulb proven OK at the right side. Right comb lamp functions as it should.
As soon as I connect the bulb, it looses 12v.
Could I have fried some wires the way it was wired, making a short when I insert a bulb?

With bulb out and lights off check plug for continuity to ground. Then turn lights back on and test other connectors that weren't for +12v to chassis ground.

At the known good side there are continuity between brake and ground, also between taillight and ground. At the left problem side there are only continuity between ground and one of the circuits.

Did some more checking and it is the left problem side taillight that has no continuity when power off. Brake light has continuity power off. Right side has continuity on both circuit continuity.
