    you'll just have to wire it to the sun roof like you would the window

    sounds like you will have to take the roof lining and pillars off to do it though but should be worth it in the end

    You won't need that module mate if your windows close when you keep the key turned in the drivers door lock

    I've got the same alarm and i've wired it up, don't know about the sunroof. If that closes with the key being kept turned in the drivers door then you won't need the module either. But i've also heard of a comfort relay (probably not in your car as its a '96 model). Let me know if your going to tackle it yourself and i'll tell you what needs to go where

    Yep, you connect the black/green stripe wire coming from the alarm to pin 17 I think it is, you may need dioides between the two lock wires depending on how they've been wired up.

    And finally you will need to setup the alarm by going into the "switches" by using your pin so your windows go up soon as you press the lock button or can be controlled so you have to keep the lock button pressed If you get that far give me a PM and i'll tell you how to navigate through the alarm by counting chirps and watching the LED flash.
