it all depends on the brand that you are using, if you know call the company or go in the web, and get some tech support.

I did this in my parents dodge ram and wow was that a PITA. It also inluded keyless door entry and an alarm. I think the instructions with the unit were pretty usefull. Get yourself an auto voltage tester at hardware or auto store. It will come in handy!

I've done one, and have decided that I would rather go outside in the cold and start my vehicle than attempt to wire another. What a PITA!!!!

You'll have to get instructions from the manufacturer. Different companies use different color wires.

I have a tach wire question for those who in the know. Is there another option for a tach wire I can use to get a tach signal other than reaching all the way into the passenger rear side of the engine bay? The tach signal input wire on my remote start unit is really short, probably a 1.5 feet long. What have others done?

My remote starter starts cranking and then stops before fully starting, so I'm assuming I have a bad tach signal wire.

Thanks guys.

what brand and model are you using?

does your alarm flash the brake lights when the remote start is used?

some alarms will kill the engine if you hit the brake light, if the brake lights flash in doing so it will kill the engine immediatly after start up. you will have to add a diode on the brake light trigger if this is so.

tach signal is also something good to look at. you should be able to attach it to the negative side of the coil.

www.alldata.com is gonna be your best source for vehicle wiring diagrams. It's $25 a year for 1 VIN and $15 for each additional VIN

trust me, I do approx. 4-6 remote starters a day... if you dont know your way 100% with electrical stuff, DO NOT do it yourself. The $100-$150 you will spend will save you approx. $500-$1000 when you accidentaly cross a wire and fry something. I have done well over 300 total in the past 3 years, and I still hate doing them... even though I can usually get the finished in about an hour on average.

When I did mine, I ran the wire out into the engine compartment for the tach and then ended up not even using it because the alarm/remote start 'learned' after startup and didn't need the tach to know the vehicle was running. I think it picked up from the run side of the ignition, but why question it, it works fine.

did you ever teach the tach to the system? Look for the tach learn routine in the install manual. if you dont have to use it, dont.

I went to my coil wire, no sweat. Same to my minivan, no issues whatsoever.

They're really not that hard to install if you take your time and plan things out ahead of time. Track down the necessary wires ahead of time, test them before hooking them up to verify they're the right one, read the manuals, neatly solder all joints. No offence but guys saying you'll save $1k in repairs if you try it yourself are pretty much just trying to sell labour.

Hi Brian,

Did you ever get an answer to your question? My son and I are also trying to install a remote starter on my 2004 Jeep cherokee and I can't find a wiring diagram that matches the color of the wires. Did you ever find an accurate color wiring diagram?

thanks, Kathy
