i suppose a factory central locking be alright. Also there is some new ones out that aren't to bad either
For alarms well, me personally i would get one with immobiliser as well. I don't like the cheap ones. Best thing to do is go to an Autobarn or car audio store and ask them, they know there stuff.

No sales pitch here, but the Jaycar stuff is good.

Central locking kits are < $35

Steel mate brand alarms start at $99 and go up.

The Shadow brand immobilisor is $99. The alarm upgrade kit is another $50. The Shadow immobilisor is Australian Standards Approved.

I have a Shadow in mine, a steelmate in my brothers HX, Shadows in my two friends cars, another steelmate in my sisters car and the paging steelmate in my mothers Tarago.

Just go to Jaycar.com.au for more info.

I thought the Jaycar Enhanced steel mate $149 alarm looked not bad.

I actually used to have that alarm in my VK but I upgraded to the Shadow because I could.
The shadow is good because it is approved, so it has three immobilisation points, black wiring, no main connector on the module etc etc.

The negative trigger wire probably isn't conected up correctly.

This is the blue wire and it connects to one of the door switchs.

If this is connected up incorrectly, it doesn't detect you opening the door and it will automatically rearm itself because it thinks you havent entered the vehicle.

So, connect this to the closest door switch.



BTW, the pink wire goes to the siren and the white wire without the inline fuse goes to the ACC.

It likely locks itself if the doors aren't opened. My alarm re-arms itself after 20 seconds if the door isn't opened.
