BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Congratulations, you have purchased one of the most advanced remote starter systems ever made. Your new
system is a technological breakthrough utilizing the most advanced, state of the art technology and
components. It is computer controlled and manufactured in the U.S.A. The dependability and variety of
features make Bulldog Security the leader in the industry. Enjoy your new system for years to come!
This system is designed to start your vehicle by sending a command signal from the remote transmitter or
by programming automatic temperature or timed start. It is required that your installation is done in a
well-ventilated area. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that the system is not used to start
the vehicle in an undesired location. It is recommended that a carbon monoxide detector be installed in
the living area near where the vehicle will be garaged.
Since there are many different makes and models of vehicles, look at the wiring chart on or our website,
www.bulldogsecurity.com/wires.htm.
Read this manual thoroughly before starting the installation. You must also decide if any options are
desired such as trunk release and dome light supervision. An optional relay will be needed for these
options. TACH/TACHLESS OPERATION In most cases the decision to go with tachless mode will save time during
the installation. If your vehicle is hard-starting or a diesel then you must use tach mode.
Please do not skip any steps.
PRECAUTIONS
This system is designed for vehicles with power door locks only.
This system is designed to be used with fuel-injected, automatic transmission vehicles only.
SAFETY FIRST!
Never start your vehicle if it is indoors, if the keys are in the ignition and you’re sure the car is in
park. A periodic safety check is recommended to ensure that your system is in proper working order.
DO NOT use mechanical wiring connections, such as crimp or snap together taps. Follow instructions
on page 2-3.
DO NOT disconnect the battery if the vehicle has an anti-theft-coded radio or is equipped with an airbag.
Doing so may cause a warning light to be displayed and may require a trip to the dealer to be corrected.
DO NOT leave the interior or exterior lights on for an extended period of time as it may cause battery
drain. Remove the dome light fuse from the vehicle’s fuse box. NOTE: Starter systems do not work well
with a partially discharged battery.
DO NOT mount the control module until all connections have been made and tested. Using wire ties or
double sided tape, MOUNT THE MODULE UNDER THE DRIVER’S DASH. Place the warning sticker under the
hood.
WARNING! – GENERAL MOTORS REAR WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLES AND DODGE DAKOTAS

LOCATING & MAKING CONNECTIONS
Please see the wiring chart on our website, www.bulldogsecurity.com.
CONSTANT POWER (+12V, key in any position including off)
These wire(s) are in your vehicle’s main ignition harness, usually located on the steering column coming
from the ignition switch. Probe each wire with your test light. The correct wire(s) will show +12V when
the ignition switch is in these 5 positions (ACC-LOCK-OFF-RUN-CRANK).
1. If your vehicle has only (1) constant power wire, attach the
RED wire from the 18-pin harness and both large RED wires from
the 4-relay harness to the constant power wire in the vehicle.
2. If your vehicle has (2) constant power wires, attach the RED
wire from the 18-pin harness and (1) large RED wire from the
4-relay harness to one of these constant power wires. Then
connect the other large RED wire from the 4-relay harness to the
second constant power wire in the vehicle.
IGNITION HARNESS
UNDER DASH
IGNITION WIRE(S) (+12V in run and crank position only)
The ignition wire(s) are also located in the main harness coming from the ignition switch. Probe each
wire with your test light, the correct wire(s) will show +12V only when the ignition switch is in the
RUN AND CRANK positions only. The correct wires will not show +12V when in the OFF or ACCESSORY position.
Most Ford, GM, and Chrysler vehicles have at least (2) ignition wires. Most foreign vehicles have only
(1).
1. Strip back the YELLOW wire from the 18-pin harness and then strip back (1) of the (2) WHITE wires
from the 4-relay harness and twist both of these wires together.
2. Connect the YELLOW wire and the WHITE wire from step (1) to the ignition wire in the main harness.
If your vehicle has only (1) ignition wire, tape off the end of the second WHITE wire from the 4relay harness and do not use.
3. If your vehicle has (2) ignition wires, connect the second WHITE wire from the 4-relay harness to it.
4. If your vehicle has (3) ignition wires (some GMs) connect the second WHITE wire from the 4-relay
4
harness to both the second and third ignition wires in the vehicle.
ACCESSORY WIRE(S) THAT POWER THE HEATER/BLOWER MOTOR
(+12V in run or on positions) This wire is also in the main ignition switch harness usually located in
the steering column. Make all connections as close to the ignition switch harness as possible.
Most vehicles will have (1) accessory wire; however some Fords, newer GM vehicles and Chrysler 94 and
up will have (2) or more accessory wires. To locate these wire(s) probe for wire(s) that only show +12V
when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ON positions. This wire(s) will not show +12V when the ignition
switch is in any other position.
1.If your vehicle has only (1) accessory wire connect the WHITE WITH BLACK STRIPE wire from the 4-relay
harness to this wire.
2.If your vehicle has (2) accessory wires, connect the WHITE WITH BLACK STRIPE wire to both.
3.If your vehicle has (3) accessory wires connect the unused WHITE wire from the 4-relay harness to the
third accessory wire.
STARTER/CRANK WIRE (+12V only in the start position only)
The starter/crank wire is also in the main harness. Locate the wire that shows +12V only in the crank
position. This wire will not show +12V in any other position. Attach the YELLOW WITH BLACK STRIPE wire
from the 4-relay harness to this wire.
DIESEL INSTALLATION ONLY
Connecting the Glow Plug or Wait to Start Wire
When installing on a diesel engine, a wire that energizes the Glow Plug (also known as the Wait to Start
Wire), must be located and identified. This wire is usually located at the instrument cluster or at the ECM
(electronic control module). This wire will, depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, test as
a (+) positive or a (-) negative.
TO TEST FOR NEGATIVE: Clip the test light to ground, then probe the wire and turn the ignition key on. The
“Wait to Start Light” on the dash should be illuminated, the test light should also be illuminated. When the
“Wait to Start Light” on the dash goes out and the test light also goes out this is a (-) negative wire.
Connect the GREEN WITH THE BLACK STRIPE wire from the 18-pin harness to this wire.
TO TEST FOR POSITIVE: Clip the test light to ground, then probe the wire and turn the ignition key on. The
“Wait to Start Light” on the dash should be illuminated, the test light should not be illuminated. When the
“Wait to Start Light” on the dash goes out but the test light is illuminated this is a (+) positive wire.
Connect the BROWN WITH THE BLACK STRIPE wire from the 18-pin harness to this wire.
NOTE: You will need to program your unit for Diesel Start Mode. See programming on page 11.
CHASSIS GROUND
Factory Bolt
Locate an easy to get to bolt or screw

BRAKE INPUT
The brake wire is located on the switch near and above the brake pedal. The correct wire will show
+12V only when the brake is pressed. Connect the BLUE WITH BLACK STRIPE from the 18-pin harness to this
wire.
FACTORY ALARM SHUT DOWN WIRE (FASD) (-)
If your vehicle is equipped with a factory alarm system (as most vehicles with a factory keyless entry
are) probe for a small gauge wire (usually found in the driver’s side kick panel) that shows (-) ground
when the door lock cylinder is turned to the unlock position using the key. This wire will usually show
a (+) positive voltage before turning the key. NOTE: Some factory disarm wires remain neutral before
you turn the key to unlock instead of +12v positive. Connect the RED WITH BLACK STRIPE wire from the
18-pin harness to this wire.
5
HOOD PIN SWITCH
This feature will keep the engine from starting or shut off the engine when the hood is opened.
Locate a good chassis ground, if at all possible do not install the pin switch in the rain gutter.
Drill a 5/16 hole, insert the pin switch into the hole and tighten. Check for the hood adjustment,
there is approximately 1/4” adjustment in the pin switch. Close the hood easy, making sure that
the pin switch is not keeping the hood from closing all the way, if it does, cut off approximately
1/8” of the black plastic off of the top of the hoodpin switch and try closing the hood again.
Check to make sure that the hoodpin switch remains neutral when the hood is closed and shows ground
when the hood is open. Plug the BLACK WITH BLUE STRIPE wire from the 18-pin harness into the bottom
of the hood pin switch.
TACH INPUT (Optional) (Must use with diesel engines)
By this time, you should have determined the way you want your vehicle to start (tach or tachless).
If you have chosen the TACHLESS start option, simply proceed to the next step and skip the following
instructions. Make sure this wire is taped up when not used. For TACH mode connect the BLACK WITH
WHITE STRIPE wire from the 18-pin harness to the negative side of the coil or the tach wire at
the coil pack under the hood. To find the coil pack follow the spark plug wires back to the
termination point. To operate in tach mode, make sure to program tach option, see programming
tach option page 11.
DOOR PIN TRIGGER
To determine if your door pin is turned on with (+) positive or (-) negative trigger, probe for a
wire in the driver’s side kick panel that switches polarity when the door is closed then opened.
You can also find this wire going to the under dash courtesy lights.
•If this wire reads +12V when the door is open and (-) ground when the door is closed, it is (+)
positive. (most Fords)
•If this wire reads (-) ground when the door is open
and +12V when the door is closed,
it is (-) negative.
If your vehicle is a (+) positive door pin connect the BLACK WITH WITH YELLOW STRIPE wire from
the 18-pin harness to the door pin wire. If your vehicle is a (-) negative door pin, connect the
GREEN wire from the 18-pin harness to the door pin wire. Make sure you tape up the unused wire.
NOTE: When testing the door pin wire, make sure the dome light is on. Some vehicles, if the door
is left open for a period of time, the dome light will go out, resulting in a false reading.
DOME LIGHT (Optional Part #775 required)
Once you have determined if your door pin wire is a (+)
positive or (-) negative and you have made this connection,
next, you must decide if you are going to connect the dome
light supervision function which will require an optional
relay. This relay will also need to be connected in a (+)
positive or (-) negative configuration depending on the
type of door pin in your vehicle.
(+) Positive Dome Light Type (Most Fords)
Connect the VIOLET wire from the 18-pin harness to the
WHITE wire on the optional #775 relay harness. Connect
the BLACK and the Blue wire on the optional relay to
+12V constant fused at 20 amps. Connect the YELLOW wire

TESTING DOOR LOCKS
TESTING: Door Locks
There are three basic types:
“Type A” Door Lock Test (Most GMs and some Chryslers)
Probe both of your door lock wires going to the door lock switch usally located in the driver’s kick
panel. Attach the clip end of your test light to a good chassis ground. Using the vehicle’s door lock
controls, activate the lock then the unlock, testing both wires one at a time. If one of these wires
tests (+) positive when lock is pressed and the other tests (+) positive when they are unlocked, your
vehicle has a “Type A” door locking system. Make sure to mark which wire is lock and unlock. Proceed
to Connecting Door Locks, Connecting Door Locks. NOTE: “Type A” and “Type C” locks will test the same,
until you test for ground. Make sure you run both tests before making your connections.
“Type B” Door Lock Test (Most Imports, some newer Fords)
Probe both of your door lock wires going to the door lock switch usally located in the driver’s kick
panel. Attach the clip end of your test light to +12V. Using the vehicle’s door lock controls, activate
the lock then the unlock testing both wires one at a time. If the test light illuminates when you probe
the lock and the unlock wires your vehicle has a “Type B” door locking system. Make sure to mark which
wire is lock and unlock. Proceed to Connecting Door Locks.
“Type C” Door Lock Test (Most Fords, some Chryslers, GM Trucks)
(Optional part #778 required)
Using your test light probe both the lock and the unlock wires usually located in the driver’s kick
panel. Attach the clip end of your test light to ground probing both wires one at a time while locking
and unlocking the doors with the driver’s side switch (usually the master switch). The test light should
illuminate in both switch positions. Now attach the clip end of your test light to +12V constant, probe
both wires one at a time again. The light should then illuminate again only in reverse order. This
tells you that you have a “Type C” reversing polarity system. Make sure to mark which wire is lock and
unlock. Proceed to Connecting Door Locks.
Testing Switch Wire and Motor Wires
Before connecting, you must now determine which wire is the switch wire and which is the motor
wire. Cut both the lock and unlock wires in half. Start with both of the lock wires by placing
the clip end of your test light to ground, hold the door lock switch in the lock position, make
sure you are using the master switch (usually on the driver’s door) and probe both lock wires
looking for voltage. The wire that illuminates the test light, mark as the switch wire, the wire
that shows no voltage, mark as the motor wire. Repeat the procedure for the unlock wire. When
connecting the lock and unlock wires to the #778 relay harness, make sure you connect the switch
wire to the RED wire or pin #87A and the motor wire to the BLUE wire or pin #30. Be sure to connect
the lock wires to the lock relay, and the unlock wires to the unlock relay, you may need to mark
these relays before you start.
