If you're planing on having Best Buy do the install, why not give them a call and see if they can do it?

Yes it is possible, but there will be extra parts/labor involved because the eclipse has an engine immobilizer from the factory. Expect $100 - $150 extra on top of the cost of the alarm/install.

I would definitely recommend getting it professionally installed, that way you have someone to blame if anything goes wrong, and you retain the manufacturer's warranty (sometimes lifetime).

I installed the alarm on my Protege5, and it took 10 hours with the help of the installers at my work. This included remote start and window roll up. This was my first alarm install and my P5 did not require an immobilizer bypass, which is usually the hardest part of a remote start install.

Well it looks like there is a Tweeter close to you. Check them out. I know they should do good work.

But do you have a spare key? If not, you will need to get one coded from the dealership and will end up costing more than a regular bypass.

What exactly are you looking for? :scratch: The installation instructions for your particular remote start system, or a wiring diagram for the vehicle, or ???

This output is used for progressive door unlock. A progressive unlock system unlocks the drivers door when the unlock button is pressed and unlocks the passenger door if the unlock is pressed again. The BLUE wire outputs a low current (-) pulse on the second press of the unlcok transmitter...
