    Hi
    Can any body help just bought a sniper simple alarm, ive installed the control box under the dash, the siren under the bonnet 3 wires i presume 2 connect directly to the battery correct??

    Then from the control box with 8 wires 2 fused which i presume are straight to the battery correct?? if so do i drill the bulkhead or connect to something in the maze of wiring under the dash??

    Please someone just help me make a start just the siren would do for now I'm that desperate, James

    Read the instructions it came with if new. If not new contact the manufacturers for instructions.

    People don't tend to run alarm wires to the battery as they are easily found and disconnected and easily followed to the alarm.

    Read the instructions that came with it.

    Different alarms are wired differently and they wire to certain things into the car. For example, my aftermarket alarm had a few wires with fuses. Two of the fuses would be for the lock/unlock mechanisms, another two would be for the left and right indicators etc. There is a hole already in the firewall, usually it's cover by a grommet and is somewhere below the battery tray (on 4 cylinder 3 series)
