    Hi Guys,

    I'm part way through installing an alarm in my VY. Can anyone give me any pointers for finding the correct wires that arm and disarm the standard alarm?

    Cheers.

    What sort of alarm are you fitting?, I usually fit an upgrade which works off the factory remote

    the factory alarm is armed & disarmed via a serial data signal to the BCM from the receiver in the centre of the dash, there is no "wires" that arm & disarm it.

    I got this setup and working this afternoon. There are actaully a couple of wires that carry signals to arm and disarm it.
