Hello,

I've scoured this site and can't find an answer to my question, so here goes.

I have a Code alarm CA-670 that I'm preparing to install into a 1990 Honda Civic.  In the install manual, it says the following:

Headlight output (-) 500mA.  Connect this wire to the vehicles headlight wire if the system is negative. (low current only)

It then goes on to show a relay hookup diagram for a (+) positive headlight output.

For the horn, it says:

"Low current" horn output (-) 500mA. Connect this wire to the vehicle's horn wire. (does not give a relay diagram)

My question is:

 MUST I install a relay for these items (although the manual doesn't specifically say to), or does the CA-670 have built-in relays, enabling me to simply tap a splice into my existing headlamp & horn wiring with no problem?

Thank you in advance for any info you can provide.

no it doesn't have built in relays. the intention is to use those outputs to power the factory relays for you horn and headlights

You will need a relay for the headlights. Your headlight wire is RED / blue at the steering wheel harness, positive trigger.

Your 90 Civic also uses a high current ground to trigger the horn. You will also need a relay for this. If your manual does not show how here is how you would wire it:

87 Ground
30 Out to blue/red horn wire in steering wheel harness
86 Negative horn output from system
85 Constant fused +12V 5amp is enough as you are only powering the relay

Hello Auto Security "Think-Tank",

I have a headlight "flash" issue with the CA 670.  The system is installed on a 1990 Honda Civic.

According to the install manual (pg.11), For a Positive headlight output to wire a relay as follows:

Pins 87 & 86 - +12 Volts

Pin   30 - vehicle headlight wire (This wire, I hooked up to the RED / blue wire at the fusebox)

Pin   85 - Lt.Green\Orange wire (-) headlight output from control module

I have everything hooked up correctly (Really, I do), wires checked & re-checked for continuity, and programmed to flash for both Arm/Disarm modes (pg.7), but no headlight flash, At all.  Arm, disarm, panic mode or simply setting off the alarm.  I've troubleshot wires, swapped relays, I can't figure it out. 

Here's some info that may or may not help. When I grounded the relay at the #85 pin (to simulate the negative pulse from the alarm) the headlights flashed every time I did it. From that, it appears that the relay is wired correctly, and perhaps isn't receiving the (-) pulse from the GREEN/ Orange trigger at the alarm, but I could be mistaken.

Help.

I just got done installing this option on a 90 Civic HB with a CodeAlarm CA-670. 

This allows you to activate the defroster from the remote in conjunction with remote start. The wire you need to tap into is:

Blk/Grn wire @ the dash switch (it is a positive trigger wire). A relay will be required.
