G'day.

Yeah, I read the comments made in Mongoose Install topic.

I have an AU Series II and want to know whether I too need to have my central locking system changed to suit.

I would not know where to start and what needs to be changed or altered.

If anyone has installed these can they provide me with some guidance / instructions please.

Thanks

Ok,

The Mongoose Vehicle Security Alarm System is called the M20 series with engine immobiliser and allgedly waterproof remotes.

I dont know if I would want an engine immobiliser, can it be installed without the immobiliser?

Cheers

Thanks for your assistance.

Yeah I think I will get a qualified alarm installer to work on this one.

I'll have to susc their prices out first in case of shady characters.

Cheers

You won't have to change the central locking for an AU. Providing the installer knows how to integrate properly, should be pretty straight forward. It won't hurt to have the alarm immobiliser installed, again as long as it's installed properly.

Greetings One Drone,

Avoid your autobarns and supercheaps etc as probably a 17 years old kid with pimples might be working on your car and not do a very good job at all. Have heard of ghastly installs where wires havent been soldered or spliced correctly and makes the car not start at all and vehicle has to be towed.

Do a yellow pages search for Auto Electricians or Auto Alarm Installers.

Pay for quality, you get quality most of the time


Yes, good point. I do just that.

Cheers

Most of the time.. I paid good money a few years ago and he still did a s**t job. Didn't understand the car and the alarm interface. I've learnt that to do it properly, do it yourself.. Now I'm a tech. :roll:

Yeah, know what you mean.

However I'm a novice to this stuff so taking mine to a Mongoose Installer mob in Coopers Plains (Brisbane).

I received a quote saying $198.00 fully fitted but takes 7 hours to do, correction leave car for 7 hours and pick up next day.

Is 7 hours about right or they pulling my leg?

Cheers

If they actually spend the 7 hours all on your car then that is good, they are taking their time to do a good job. However I suspect that they just book cars in like a mechanic and do it when they have the time/schedule it so it's there for 7 hours but doesn't mean they worked on it for that long.

Ok Thanks,

Fair enough , just was not sure if that seven hours was the actual amount of time spent on one car, I'm more of the view like you, just like a mechanic they will bring cars in and when they find time they will work on it.

If the other way i.e. spending 7 actual hours on one car then they might not get much business to cover overheads and would go broke I would think.

Cheers, Peter
