Hello everyone well real quick.. for Christmas i put a Crime stopper RS-1304 in my fathers 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 (4) door.. i used Omegas DB-GMDLBP for the Bypass. however i could not figure out were to hook the BROWN wire coming off of it.. It says it needs a (-) connection so i grounded it out. well the truck remote started, key less entry everything just great, until the next morning it had a dead battery.. we jumped the truck and everything still worked great until once again a dead battery the next morning..

So i finally unhooked the brown wire, the truck will not remote start now but it will still key less entry.. and ever since i unhooked the brown wire it has NOT had a dead battery?

If anyone could help me out i would greatly appreciate it!!

Connect the brown wire to a wire labeled as (-) ignition output, 3rd (-) ignition output, status output, or ground when running output on the Crimestopper. Different manufacturers call it different things.

On my crimestopper there is a ORANGE / Black wire labeled as
(-)Ignition/Anti Grind.. i was told by the manufactures of the Crime stopper to clip this wire off and not use it cause the DBGM will take care of it? i tried connecting the Brown wire to it anyways and it didn't work?

You need a ground(-) output from the RS that is only active while the RS is activated.

yes i understand that i guess my question is.. what would be the best wire to connect it to? or how should i go about this? On my truck i just connected the brown wire to the ORANGE / black wire and it worked but i also used a 555L Bypass instead of the DBGM

Your orange and black wire should work.
Hopefully you didn't cut it to short.
If you did you may be able to get the pin out of the connector.
There is usually a little metal tab that holds it in.
If you depress it and pull just right you should be able to get it out.
Solder a new wire to the tail and re-insert the pin.
I prune my harnesses also, however I cut them an inch or two long and tape them to the other wires, just in case.

I did leave about 3 inches of wire in case i needed them so even though the BLACK/ Orange wire is Hooked to NOTHING i can still hook the brown wire to it and it should work?

On crimestoppers you need the yellow/black wire coming from the remote starter to the brown wire of the GMDLBP.  This wire from R/S has (-) output the whole time the R/S is active.

The ORANGE / black is a oem disarm wire.

hey man. what you've done is hooked up your bypass to constantly activate, so basically you no longer have an immobilizer period. somebody could come and jump your constant to your ignition and crank wires and it'd start.

you want to look for a wire called (-)status, or (-) when running. if your starter system doesn't have a wire labelled that then you'll need to hook it up to a negative trigger. don't use a negative accessory trigger because accessory shuts down during crank. best would be ignition trigger or if you get stuck with a starter trigger that should work too. I'm not terribly familiar with a the crimestoppers, but it has to have a negative output you can use.

the only way a remote starter or alarm will kill a battery is if it's activating something else.

Wow thanks for the insight getting my fathers truck stolen would not be very fun..

On the crimestopper RS 1304

it has a wire labeled YELLOW/BLACK (-) Ignition/Or Anti-Grind Feature

Now when i told the factory i would be using the Omega Bypass they said not to worry about hooking this YELLOW/BLACK wire to anything so i snipped it off but left 3 inches in case i needed it..

If i connected the YELLOW/BLACK wire from the CS to the BROWN wire of the Bypass will that work?

Thanks everyone

Sorry that it took so long to get back to everyone..
I did try what i was told to do..

Hook the Brown Wire from the Bypass Module "TO" the BLACK / YELLOW wire off the CrimeStopper..

Sadly when i did this the truck would still not start? i am getting so annoyed of this stupid damn wire.. is there another wire i can try to connect it to? any help is gladly appreciated!!

Thanks everyone

Make sure you didn't use the ORANGE / BLACK wire. If not, I would test the YELLOW/BLACK(-IGN:output) wire to see if it's providing a ground during the R/S operation. You should dis-connect the BROWN(GWR:input) wire from the YELLOW/BLACK(-IGN:output) wire, during this diagnostics. It's possible the default programming for the YELLOW/BLACK(-IGN:output) wire has been changed but, I doubt it.
