Installation Procedures
Control Unit
1. Select a location under the dash that will allow you to use tie wraps to
securely fasten the control unit.
2. Mount the control unit as high as possible to ensure maximum range.
3. Do not mount the control unit near moving parts.
4. Avoid areas that are in the direct path of air blowing from the vents.
5. Route wires from this point, leaving slack for ease of service.
Antenna
1. Do not shorten or lengthen the antenna.
2. Route the antenna away from the control unit.
3. Keep the antenna as far away from metal and wire harnesses as possible
to optimize range.
Wireloom
1. Plug the wireloom securely into the control unit.
2. Route wires from the control unit directly to each connection point.
3. Separate the RED, BLACK, RED/WHITE, VIOLET and TAN wires.
4. Sleeve the wires with vinyl tubing or electrical tape and route them
through an existing rubber grommet into the engine compartment.
5. If an existing grommet is not available, drill a hole and install a snap
grommet.
Valet Switch
1. Discuss placement with the owner.
2. Choose a location for the valet switch that is hidden, but convenient for
the owner to access.
3. Drill a ¼" hole and mount the switch.
4. Route the valet switch wires to the control unit.
5. Plug the valet switch BLUE connector into the control unit BLUE plug.

Tornado Installation Manual 1/5/98
LED Indicator
1. Discuss placement with the owner.
2. Choose a location that is visible from both sides of the vehicle.
3. Drill a ¼" hole.
4. Route the LED wires through the hole and press LED into place.
5. Route the LED wires to the control unit.
6. Plug the RED LED connector into the control unit RED plug.
Ignition Input
1. Use a voltmeter to locate the one wire that shows +12 volts when the
ignition key is in the "ON," "CRANK" and "RUN" position, and 0 volts
when the ignition key is in the "OFF" position.
2. Connect the control unit PINK wire to the vehicle’s ignition wire.
Channel 2 Accessory Output
The DARK BLUE wire provides a 0.75 second ground (-) output when the
remote control button #2 is activated for 1-2 seconds. If the remote control
button #2 is continuously pressed, the signal will stay at ground as long as the
button is held. Most trunk releases are positive and require an optional relay.
Parking Lights
1. If the parking lights are positive trigger, connect the RED/WHITE wire
to the battery positive (+) terminal through the 20 amp fuse.
NOTE: Do not connect the RED/WHITE wire to the control unit RED
wire.
2. If the parking lights are negative (-) trigger, connect the RED/WHITE
wire to control unit BLACK wire.
3. Connect the RED/BLACK wire to the vehicle parking light wire.
Interior Light Trigger
7
2
Tornado Installation Manual 1/5/98
The Tornado2 interior light trigger wire is programmable to accept a positive
(+) or negative (-) input. The module is factory preset for negative (-) door
trigger.
1. Connect the alarm WHITE wire to the vehicle door trigger wire(s).
2. If the vehicle door trigger is positive (+) trigger, follow the "Door
Trigger Input Polarity" section in the "Programming Table for Alarm
Features" to program the module for positive (+) door trigger.
Interior Light Illumination Output
The WHITE/BLACK wire provides a current limited (-) output for 30
seconds upon remote disarm. Interior light illumnination requires an
optional relay.
1. Connect the alarm WHITE/BLACK wire to relay terminal 85.
2. Connect relay terminal 86 to a fused constant +12 volt source.
3. Connect relay terminal 30 to the vehicle door trigger wire(s).
4. If the vehicle door trigger is positive (+) trigger, connect relay terminal
87 to a fused +12 volt source.
5. If the vehicle door trigger is negative (-) trigger, connect relay terminal
87 to ground (-).
Starter Disable Output
The alarm GRAY wire provides a continual ground output while the alarm is
armed. Starter disable requires an optional 30 amp relay.
1. Connect the alarm GRAY wire to relay terminal 85.
2. Connect relay terminal 86 to an ignition switched +12 volt source
(alarm module PINK wire).
3. Locate the ignition switch wireloom under the dashboard.
4. Use a voltmeter to find the one wire that will show +12 volts while the
ignition key is in the cranking cycle only. This should be the starter
solenoid wire.
5. Cut the starter solenoid wire in half. Test by trying to crank the starter.
If it will not crank, you have the correct wire.
6. Connect one end of the starter wire to relay terminal 87A.
7. Connect the other end of the starter wire to relay terminal 30.
Door Lock/Unlock Outputs
8
2
Tornado Installation Manual 1/5/98
The alarm provides a .75 second 300 MA (-) output for lock and unlock.
Follow the door lock diagrams on pages 9 - 11.
Hood/Trunk Pin Switch
1. Locate the vehicle hood or trunk pin switch that shows ground when
the hood or trunk is open only.
2. Connect the alarm module to the vehicle hood or trunk switch wire.
3. If the vehicle does not have a hood or trunk switch, install an alarm pin
switch and connect it to the alarm module TAN wire.
Siren
1. Choose a location in the engine compartment away from high heat
engine components, moving parts and direct exposure to water.
2. Make sure the siren and siren wires cannot be seen or reached from
below the vehicle.
3. Mount the siren with the two self tapping screws to a solid metal surface.
4. Connect the siren BLACK wire to the alarm module VIOLET wire.
5. Connect the siren RED wire to the alarm module RED wire.
Power and Ground Connections
Caution: Do not plug in the system fuses until the final step below.
1. Connect the alarm RED wire to one of the supplied fuse assemblies.
2. Connect the alarm RED/WHITE wire to the other fuse assembly (if the
vehicle parking lights are (+) positive).
3. Connect the fuse assembly(s) to one of the supplied 10mm ring
terminals.
4. Connect the alarm BLACK wire to the other 10mm ring terminal.
5. Remove the (+) and (-) battery bolts. Do not disconnect the battery
clamps.
6. Connect the empty fuse assembly(s) to the positive battery post.
7. Connect the alarm BLACK wire to the battery negative post.
8. Inspect all alarm wiring. Make sure all wires are connected.
