Some locks are three wire (G, L and U), some (mostly European) are two - G and cycle (two wire are distinctive - operating one lock operates em all).
I wont be doing my alarm til March... I was looking at the viper - my local alarm and trim guy quoted me a generic brand with all the same features, installed
for about 100 more than what I would pay for just the viper and have to do the install myself. It's like my hearing aids - I wear Audibels but the same company makes Starkey which is 60% the cost of the Audibels (BUT I got the Audibels for the price of the starkeys - frequent flyer!) - the alarm he is using comes off the same line as the viper - just not branded and advertised... and he's going to co-ordinate with my work (am decking the back seat in and adding inverter, heat exchanger, water tank and refer along with locking side boxes made for the fenders and a removable headache wall) so it will go in phases.
