I was close to installing remote start on mine, but disabling smartlock didn't tickle my fancy. It may be stock but it is another line of defence against theft.


yeah, but that's what the new alarm is for.


Not many people take much notice of a car alarm these days. But i suppose it would be better than nothing! :wink:


Thats why I got a 2-way alarm, it lets me know if something happens.

well the relay I hooked up (as above) did the trick.

Beware, the EL Smartlock/BEM information in the doco section appears incorrect (at least teh boot release wire, I haven't checked the rest of it), the right wire from the BEM>boot was not in the pin location specified, and cause they gave no colour, I resorted to my Gregory's and a multimeter to confirm.

EF = Works all the time.
EFII = Doesnt work once key is out.
EL = Will work for 2 min after key is turner to off or removed from ignition.


Your car is doing the right thing for an EF.

An EL. EL BEMs added a 'feature' that disables to boot release button (in car) I guess so a drug crazed break in would have 5 more seconds to waste by jumping in the back seat to get to the percieved goodies in the boot.

hey guys, i have an alarm installed in my car, but have 2 controls. 1 to lock the car, 1 to arm the alarm. The alarm could do it all, arm and lock the car, but how do i get around the Interiour light delay??? That circuit is used to trigger the alarm so as soon as you arm it thinks a door is left open and beeps at you. Is there a way of tapping into the smartlock lock signal that turns the light off as you lock????? if you know what i mean.

The car is a 1998 AU Fairmont.

Cheers

Use seperate sensors on each door rather than the interior light circuit?

crap. I was hoping there was a wire i can tap into. Would i have to put in some switches to trigger it or what, as the AU doesnt have the old push in style door switches, there built into the latch or something.
