Hello. My name is Michael. I can help you with your question.

It will be easiest if you start with the available wires in the truck, and then find those on the avital. I know it sounds simple, but there will likely be many unused wires on the remote start, so it's almost impossible to determine which wires not to use, except for them just not to be used when you are done. Here are the wires in the F150 that you need to connect to the corresponding avital. In some cases, a wire from the truck will connect to more than one wire on the avital.

thanks this is where i am at now. hooked up remote start and transponder bypass. truck starts using the remote start fob. when i tun on my hvac controls (and blower) and use remote start, the hvac/blower do not work. the horn and parking lights dont flash/beep with i use the remote start nor do the door locks automatically lock upon starting.I DID NOT connect the following wires, either because i didnt think they got connected or i didnt know where to connect them to. again, with all the below wires NOT connected, the starter functions as described above... i provide u with the color coded wire and a description of what the installation instructions say it is used for:5 pin harness:
blue/white 2nd status output/defogger
black/white neutral safety shutdown ( I connected this wire to ground)9 pin harness:
red/white (-) 200mA channel two output (trunk)?
orange (-) ground wire when locked
white/blue (-) activation output
yellow (-) ignition output
green/white (-) factory alarm rearm
green/black (-) factory alarm disarm4 pin satellite harness:
pink (-) 200mA third ignition ON
purple (-) 200 mA 2nd starter ON
orange (-) 200 mA accessory turn ON
blue (-) woomA status output6 pin heavy gauge harness:
I believe all are correctly hooked up (question: there are two separate 12 V high current red input wires (each 30 amp fuse)...i conected BOTH of these to the yellow ignition wire,im pretty sure this covers it,,,not sure tho! thanks
Expert:  Michael Hannigan replied 1 year ago.

Defogger is fine

Safety shutdown - connection to ground will basically override it, so that's ok.

Thick yellow is the constant 12v source. And yes, you can connect as many relays as you need to that, as long as you don't exceed max capacity, which in this case is 30amps, so you won't.

The auto locking is something that is programmed in the bypass

Status output is for the blinking of the lights. So that should be connected to the signal wire for the relay connected to the parking lights and/or headlights/brake lights.

morning and thanks for the info...but not really sure u answered all the questions. would u pls give me a line-by line response. in addition to line-by -line response to my previous questions (all basically asking for support for wires i did/did not connect), i have a few other transponder (directed electronics 556u imobilizer interface) has 6 wires coming out of it. red, blue,pink, black,violet and green. I connected the red, pink and black only. do i need to connect the remaining three, if so, where and to what. (i am attaching a file showing the 6 pin harness for your reference).On the remote start wires, for the 6 in heavy gauge wires...there is a pink/white that goes to ignition 2 output, according to you, this should NOT be connected? ( i connected it to the red/black from the ignition harness)On the same harness there is an orange accessory 1 output. I connected this to blk/lt grn...from wat i believe you said, i should connect this to the red/blk instead (ignition harness)?I am also attaching a schematic of the wiring for the remote start as well for you reference. those shown with an "x" indicate i have them connected and to what. All the others i am unsure of (as i indicated in my detailed last message to you).again, PLEASE respond to ALL my previous questions, as well as the above which i've added. In doing that, i am quite sure we can close this whole thing out...good for me and even better for you!thanks for all the help. (should be three attachments)

I don't mind piecing this together, it's just gonna take me a bit to draw it out for you where any and all further questions would be self referencing. If no one has answered you within 48 hours you should have something from me, thanks!
