The easy way to test is to go ahead and tap your blue/white hatch release wire on the car. Before hooking it up to the red/white of the 4103, take it and touch any grounded part of the car. It should release.runningslow wrote:Ha. Well, I found that diagram by searching for information on how to use the bulldog 775 relay to pop a trunk. I'll take your word for it that isn't needed.
The weather isn't too favourable this morning for my install, so I'm keeping an eye on the weather.
Maybe I can rig something up and just connect it straight to the battery or piggy back off the harnesses for this test, without disconnecting anything..... otherwise, this will be a huge PITA. At least I used wire taps, instead of soldering wires, so taking them off won't be so bad, if I go that route.SlammedNiss wrote:OK, then let's start from the beginning. I hate to ask this of ya, but disconnect everything EXCEPT your ground (#8, 9-pin) and +12v (red, 6-pin). with only those 2 connected, you should have at least SOME response (relay clicking inside unit ) when pressing lock/unlock on the keypad. If not, the unit is either DOA or something happened along the way.
I see you're in Dallas. I'm a short 6 hours away in Hutchinson, KS. If you can make it here today, I can personally help you figure it out.
There are inline fuses on anything that has incoming power, so I don't think it would be easy to do. Honestly, if you replace the unit, I'd still recommend starting fresh with the wiring, starting first with your main ignition wires + ground. Then testing after every time you hook up another wire. That way if it all of a sudden doesn't respond you know what wire to change.runningslow wrote:SlammedNiss wrote:What are the chances I fried it? Is that easy to do?
Red out of the 6 pin goes to +12v constant, black out of 9 pin needs to go to ground. Plug one end of the antenna wire into the 4103 and plug the other end into the antenna receiver. From there you should hear the internal relay for the parking lights click when pressing lock/unlock on the keypad.runningslow wrote:So, either I now have two DOA units... or I'm doing something wrong. I prefer to think its the latter.
What is the bare minimum that needs to be connected to get signs of life (relay clicking when lock/unlock pressed)?
Ground, power, antenna. Anything else? Please be explicit, exact pins.
The only thing in the box that I haven't touched (apart from satellite harness and hood pin) is a toggle switch, which I had thought is simply intended to be wired in-line with something else (neutral safety?) to activate/deactivate the system.
