Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

The alarm you installed will have you cut the yellow ignition switch wire and run the alarm to the cut wires.. To determine if this is a vehicle or alarm issue simply reinstall the yellow wires together and see if it will start.. If yes then you have a bad alarm, if no then you have an issue with the vehicle and not the alarm..

If you need anymore assistance feel free to reply and don't forget the RATING before leaving the site!!

Have a great day,

Hi thanks for your comments, please let me know if the yellow wire is the one that are connected to the relay RL-40? Or the one that are plugged to the alarm box

Here is another picture, i cut the yellow wire near than the relay and nothing happens, pleasw let me know more tips

Good afternoon...

The alarm is connected to the vehicle at the steering column harness.. On the steering column harness you will need to locate the yellow factory wire that has been cut, once you locate the cut wire then jump the yellow wire together and see if it will start..

Hi, finally i found both yellow wires, it was connected to the relay, i put both yellow wires connected, switch the truck with out fix. When i switch to start i can see that the odometer level moves in the oppositive way.

Does it start and run?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No not start and not run. I want to tell you that the remote is working to open and close doors too, but when i switch to start my dodge not start
Expert:  -Brad- replied 10 months ago.

Ok if you connected the yellow wire and the engine will crank but not start then you will need to start with the basics, see if it has fuel psi and spark that will tell you which direction to head to get it started..

Ok it will take me more time, i will replay 30min later, keep wait pleasw

Hi, i give current direct to the generator it try to run but the gas bump are not giving fuel. So the alarm are cuting current to the gas bump. Please let me know next step
Expert:  -Brad- replied 10 months ago.

Did you say you jumped 12v to the generator? Why did you do this? If you have the yellow wire connected the alarm has nothing to do with the no start. Do you have spark and fuel psi? What codes are in the PCM?
