Re: Possible electrical issues

no clue on the alarm and how its kept a low profile this whole time. i removed it only to start a whole new level of issues. removing it caused me to lose my tail lights and turn signals.

How do the connections look that were spliced in for the alarm. If they look terrible, then I would also make sure none of them are bad or causing the issue. If they look good and that a professional did them, you have less to worry about.

Like in cars, people pay to get these things installed and never look at the work. So many times the install was a hack job where they just twisted wires together and used some electrical tape to cover up the exposed connections. If that provided a good reliable connection, manufacturers would be using this method instead of those expensive wiring looms and expensive sealed connectors.

Probably the PO didn't say anything because the alarm doesn't work.

I pretty much removed the alarm. It used to cherp when i would install a battery, it stopped doing that when i had all this electrical issues happen. but now i think the issue is in the start/stop switch, all the previous components are all plugged in except the stop start switch and my fuse did not blow. so now i assume thats my issue.

Good Morning,

i took out all of the alarm. then reconnected teh tail lights to the original plugs. now the tail light and turn signals dont work, but the break light does work.

as far and the stop/run switch, i took it completely apart. i took the actual switch red switch off to see what it would do, i turned teh key and it didnt pop the fuse, i reattached the red switch, i then turned the key and flipped the switch to run, the fuse popped. so did i dint the problem? lol

Still no clock or display

Think your on the right lines now , the tail lights and turn signal could be effect of the alarm, I'll have a look at the wiring diagram, is there any code or name on the Scorpio alarm that I could have to find any instructions for

I looked for nomenclature on the alarm box. i looked at pictures of Scorpio alarms. it looks like the I900. but i could be wrong, but looks identical as far as all the stuff it comes with. I appreciate all your help. im almost tempted to purchase a new stop start switch, but i dont want to be $75 dollars wrong.

Re: Possible electrical issues

Hi I would concentrate on the White/black wire on the engine stop switch and the black wire from the engine stop switch to the starter switch, they both connect white/black to the angle sensor and the black wire to the engine stop relay , any shorts along those wires

SO i went through the stop/start switch, i check for continuity at the connector and i had power at 3 of the 7 wires. i have not checked the ignition switch yet. i will check it now
