im blanking out, havent installed an alarm or remote start in a few years,

on my remote start on the heavy gauge wires, theres

1 starter output

2 high current 12v in

3 acc output

4 high current 12v in

5 high curretn 12v in

6 output for 2nd ign

i seem to remember cutting the wires and connecting a wire to each cut end at my ignition harness, but the alarm had starter kill,   or do i just connect the wire from the brain right into the uncut wire in my cars harness?

is it ok to connect all the heavy gauge wires to the one heavy gauge at my ignition harness if im just tapping the other wires into the acc, starter, ign etc

What is it you are installing..... and what is it you are installing it too?

Seems odd there are 3 input's, and no 1 ign.

You shouldn't have to cut any wires.  You would cut the starter wire if you were installing a starter kill.

I don't remember there being 3 12vdc wires on the Boa, maybe that was a typo?

ya one of those was actually a ign

anyways i got another problem, i think my parking light output from my car is positive,  and the output from the boa is negative, do i have to convert it with a relay?  i found that on there site, it shows using 12v fused input from somewhere shoudl it be a constant?

ok i converted the wire with a relay, this thing really sucks lol  i dont remeber having to do doodie like that with my compustar.

new peoblem, it cranks my car about half a second to long i hear it grind,  and the lights flash the whole time its remote started.

also my frickin locks dont work, i think i have to connect to of the other outputs thought and ground them, this thing kinda sucks

Hate to say I told you so, but.....


What do you mean the door locks do not work? How did you wire them? The internal door lock relays is the only part of the 265B that I actually like.

The flashing lights: nothing you can do about it. There is no option to change this.

Over cranking...did you hook up the tachometer connection? If you did and the Boa sees a valid input on this wire for 30 seconds it will automatically switch to tachometer sensing from voltage sensing.

i had to ground 2 outputs from the brain to get the locks to work... i dont see whats to like

the tack wire is connected and i tried the run for 30+ sec to learn then remote started it again still grinding

the flashing is kinda stupid

yes u warned me but so far itt seems to do its job, havent got to test the range yet
