Default Compustar CM6300

Spent a lot of time searching around for this, but I can't be sure as to where all the wires go after the alarm..

Yes, I'm basically asking if anyone has dealt with this alarm, and could walk me through it.

No remote start, no trunk release. Just drivers and passengers door, with driver as priority. Also, should I be picking up relays?

This is the installation guide, but if you read through it, it really doesn't say where all these damn wires should go

Thanks guys

Page 3 has where all the wires go what more do you need?

Clearly you didn't read the instructions they look pretty complete to me. It even walks you step by step through each connection.

I think my compustar came with the wiring diagram on the back of the alarm and that was it. These instruction are way better. If your looking for it to tell you which color wire to connect it to on your car it's not gonna do that. Every car is different.

Go to www.the12volt.com and get the wiring diagram for your specific car. Then start connecting the names of the wires together. Always use a multimeter to test the wires before connecting them. Also NEVER probe wires that are wrapped in yellow wire loom or yellow tape. These are air bag wires and you could possibly implode an air bag and kill yourself.

Yeah I gotcha.. But you're right, I was looking for instructions as to which color wire goes to the car, and I didn't even think of the fact that every car is different. Thanks for the info tho, I'll check it all out

Alright, checked it out, where am I connecting this wires to though? lets say I have GREEN coming from the alarm and it goes to RED/BLACK on the car which is parking lights.. Do I replace the redblack with the green? Do I splice into it? Where is it going?

Nsx you still have those alarms? Op your car looks nice in your avatar. Why don't you have a back up battery on the alarm? And do the alarm right from the start. We can help you out here.

Thanks,

that car has since been completely repainted, inside and out and all this and that yadda yadda.. basically, too much time and money invested to not have a security system installed..

anyway, I would like to add a back up battery, but first I just wanna figured out how things get wired in, I'm sure a back up battery isn't too complicated..

I undershow where things should be mounted, etc etc.. What I don't get is where the output wires should go. Do they replace factory wires? Or splice into them?

Thanks again

Yes I installed one in my monster truck because I had nothing else to put it in. The other is still sitting in a box brand new. The cars I bought these for are long gone. The cars that replaced them come with factory alarms which is good enough for me. Know anyone that want's to buy it? I dont even remeber what I paid for it or what it's worth. It's missing the siren because I stole it for a different project but those are pretty cheap and everything else is there.

Splice into the factory wires. But judging by your questions you should ask yourself if this is above your skill level. I'm not trying to be a jerk but it sounds like you have no electrical experience at all. I just dont want you to thrash your car.

No no, I understand- I have quite a bit of electrical experience, however I've just never messed with alarms of any type. I don't understand the input/output wires and stuff. Yes this is above my skill level, and it seems like by quite a bit, but I won't cobb anything together, hence why I'm doing lots of research. I'm just not finding the answers to my questions is the problem.

To have the shop install it, they wanted $1100 (including the alarm) and I don't have the time or money to have it done, since the car still needs to be put back together. I can't have it waiting at a shop, needs to be finished by next week so it can take my *** to school

An input to the alarm is a signal the car sends to the alarm.
Example: door trigger- there is a pin switch in the door that supplies a ground (0v) when the door is open and +12V when the door is closed. The alarm uses the transition in voltage to detect when someone opens the door.

An output from the alarm is a signal the alarm intends to drive.
Example. The parking light wire. When the alarm goes off there isn't someone sitting in the car switching the parking light switch on an off. Instead the alarm drives the wire with +12V to provide an alternate power source instead of the switch.

Sometimes you can find someone local to you that will do an install for much cheaper then a shop. I would look for someone like that. I have no idea what to expect to pay I've always done the stuff myself. I'm an electrical engineer, ask wrx_killer he's an installer and shop owner and would have a better idea on price. A basic alarm install with car start should take about a day to install. Much faster for people who do it all the time. Probably more like 4-8 hrs.

Sorry, meant to reply earlier, phone died though.

Anyway, to start- I appreciate everyones help

I wired everything up myself today, after a few calls to/from friends around the state. It wasn't too difficult after I figured out how the wires were supposed to be connected.

Everything is working as it should, except the outputs.. well some of them.

When the alarm is tripped, the relays click, and parking lights flash. However, the siren does not sound (I tested the siren and it works fine). Also, the door solenoids aren't working.

This is what I've done,

If you check the pdf attached in the first post, page 3 will explain a little more.
There's is a white 20 pin connector, the BROWN wire coming from it says to wire it to the 12V siren.. I did this, but the BROWN wire is very thin (maybe 22-24ga?) and the siren wire is thicker (maybe 16-18ga).

I'm wondering if it's not getting enough juice to it, or if a bad ground would cause no sound from the siren, but parking lights to work.

Next, I wired the priority unlock to my drivers door solenoid, and the regular unlock to the passenger door.
These wires are also thin, and need to open a rated 45lb door popper, maybe they're not getting enough juice either?

I asked around if I needed to wire in relays, but I was told the wires should be more than enough to carry the necessary volts.

The final problem, is that when I open and close the doors, the alarm won't sound, it's only activating through the dual stage shock sensor. I wired the DOOR TRIGGER from the alarm into a LIGHT GREEN/RED wire on the drivers running board, and according to the12volt.com that is the door trigger. That wire is a ground to the dome light, a WHITE/RED wire goes to the dome and supplies a constant 12v. When it is set to OFF, there is no ground, DOOR it grounds to the LIGHTGREEN/RED (which wires into the door switch) and ON it grounds through a bolt.

So.. any insight guys?

^^^^ Geezus $1100 with alarm and basic install. No back up battery or anything. Thats just crazey. A basic install with that alarm. Just alarm, no remote start, Under the dash should be no more then $350-540 depending on region.

I agree, I think the guy who gave me the estimate was a bit intimidated by the door poppers and what not. To their defense, they DO do a great job, and go above and beyond what they need to. However, $1,100 is pretty nuts
