    Your correct its a pos trigger. Its pin 4 and 13 on the zke module. Middle plug out of the top 3 Can't remember which way around but IIRC pin 4 was unlock and pin 13 was lock.

    I wouldn't trust that alarm to lock itself after walking 2 metres away lol

    Thanks m8 i think i have an idea now so im guessing that pin 4 is for the yellow or black yellow or 13 vice versor from the alarm colours in diagram ill check this on car tommorow with a multimeter and pin 4 and 13 for white or white black vice versor ill prob get it wrong way around and it will unlock when i want it to lock. .Umm so far with the alarm its said what it said on the box iv walked away and its said alarm armed and walked to it and its said alarm disarmed so far so good it has warrenty from the supplyer so all good so far but if it goes wong it wont take me to mins to rip it out and put another one in just hope if it does wrong its at home and not in tescos car park any other advise will be great mate cheers mark

    Right get that sorted and let us know how you get on

    Need anymore help just give shout/scream/rant in this thread lol, I fitted a Toad ai606 to my car with no problems. Just needed a few dioides here and there because of the doors switches using the same wire on the car but different on the alarm. But yours looks straigh forward enough

    cheers mate just looked again at the diagram do the yellow and yellow/black go to continuos live or do they also go on the middle yellow zke plug? there the ones that are baffling me i sorted figured half of it out but im getting more and more confused with it but thanks for the advise for pin 4 and 13 ill have a look at them tommorow i beleave they are for my white black wire and solid white from my alarm just these yellow wires i have no clue to i though if it had a possitive live it would have run from the alarm at all times and wouldnt have needed yellow and yellow black to go to a possitive connection i wish now i got a clifford or a toad mate as atleast the wiring diagrams and explanitory gave u more of an idea thanks again for your time

    yellow/black and yellow will both go to constant positive - You can use the purple/green thick wire on pin one of the black plug in the car (top left) IIRC. Or you could just join to your alarm red positive wire after the fuse.

    Your white/black and white are the only two wires that will attach to pin 4 or 13 depending which way round they need to go. Use the cig lighter for a quick test by pulsing pin 4 and see if it locks or unlocks.

    If your car window go up when keeping the key turned in the lock position in the drivers door then you already have an window module fitted. So all you'll need to do is connect that window wire to your lock pin (pin 13 IIRC) but use a diode so you don't send feedback to your alarm (shouldn't do any harm but i'd always recomend it to be on the safe side)
