Heeelllooooo thebesthonda,Well, I'm putting an alarm system in my 1990 Acura Integra LS.It's a Omega Freedom 150 alarm and I'm having a hard time finding a good location in the engine compartment. The only place I might have space for the siren is the firewall where the heater core is located at.I was thinking putting it in the trunk and running the wires back there.Any other suggestions?I sure appreciate you still helping us poor folks, lol.Tom

I haven't put anything in the car yet, I just labled the wires. Oh by the way is the door trigger at fuse box identified as door trigger?

I sure hope "thebesthonda" expert is still with JustAnswer. I've been asking him lots of questions for sometime now.
Anyhow, I want to install an Omega Freedom 150 car alarm system and I'm wondering where I could install the serin other than the engine compartment for lack of a good mounting space. One place is on the fire wall but it's where the heater core is and I don't wont to puncture the core. I have a 1990 Acura Integra LS.
That's where I'm at with this issue.
Thank you Walt.
If you have any more questions or need anything please don't hesitate to ask. If the answer I send helps you, please click ACCEPT.Good morning Tom. I had some internet problems yesterday, but we are back on track now. As for the siren. Is there not enough room on the driver side near the engine mount for the siren? Im not familiar with the size of your particular siren.
Good morning thebesthonda,
well it's about about 3" deep and 3.25" wide. If I screw through the fire wall where the heater core is will I puncture the core if I use 1/2 inch screws? Also, how can I identify the door trigger, it's suppose to be at the fuse box.
Well hope is all well and as always thank you for your appreciated hep.
Yes. That would be fine. Just be careful if you have to drill the holes. Just use a short drill bit in case the drill tries to jump through all the sudden. Short, self drilling screws would be ideal for this. As for the door trigger, it should just need a ground. I normally run this wire up to the ground side of the overhead interior light. This will activate when any door has been opened whether its the driver or passenger and the wire is easy to feed up the windshield post simply by unsnapping the inside plastic cover and feed the wire under it to the headliner. Please let me know if you need anything else.

I installed the door trigger to the dome light but I just connected it at the windshield and it works just fine, thanks.
Now I'm a little confuse about the door lock and unlock wires. I want to hook up the 2 wires at the "power door lock control unit". My Haynes manual has the wires listed on the page from top to bottom as follows: Batt. input (wht/yel) - unlock unput (blu/red) - lock unput (blu) unlock input (grn/red) - lock input (grn/wht) - lock output (wht/red) - unlock output (yel/red) - ground (blk) lock input (blu/wht) - lock output (red/wht) unlock output (blk/red). Now should I hook up the lock and unlock to driver's door lock acutator, driver's door lock switch? I guess I'm getting confused on the input & output part of it.
Anyhow, I appreciate all your help thebesthonda!
That works! Yes. I would connect these at the actuator sir. Please let me know if you need anything.
