Any alarm/anti hijack technicians around?

Of course there are people who only dream about driving a Hilux or Cruiser. They are welcome to show us their current vehicles here, ask questions or post some exciting new releases.

Is there anybody around here who makes a living from fitting alarm systems?
We have a little Tazz and it has an aftermarket alarm/anti hijack system fitted. This thing has a button to press after you started the car and then if you forgot it activates the car's hooter. This normally happens just as you pass the blonde who's taking her dog for a walk or the neighbour who is tanning topless. So it is quite annoying.

I checked the system and there is a lot of wires going out of it. On the box it says "AutoWatch" 211 hi and there is somethign about a 3way something. If there is anybody who knows these things can you please tell ne which wire connects to the hooter. I wants to disconnect it and connect it to a little buzer which I can put inside the car.

I did the very same mod Pieter, as the horn would sound and upset many a motorist in front of me. :wth:

1st bit of good news is that there is no colour coding, all the wires are black :o:

What you must do is remove the trims around your steering column. This should expose the point where they spliced into the cables. Check the colour of the cable supplying the horn (under the bonnet/behind the radiator grill) then source it back to the harness on the steering column. :wink:

What I did was to wire to the siren instead, this results in a bip instead of a hoot. :D:

Good luck Pieter :!:

Pieter, you can override the anti hijack function on the autowatch systems, by pressing both the hidden button and the button to disarm the system. :thumbup: The alarm should sound twice to indicate that it is off.

Also when it is off and you press the hidden button it will sound the alarm horn to indicate it is turned off. Hope it helps.... :wink:

Thank you for the advice. Cassie, it is still the Toyota remote, when I started to work on it, it seems like they used the factory fitted alarm and just added the anti hijack system to it.

I went the buzzer route. The first buzzer a installed was too soft, could not hear it but then I bought a big one and now it is much better.

For all it is worth, it was the green/black wire BUT to blow the horn you must earth this wire. Thus there is power on the horn all the time and if you earth this little wire it will blow. So I had to connect the one end of the buzzer on a life wire and then the other end to the anti hi-jack wire and it worked.

Apologies for resurrecting an ancient thread. I'm considering installing this very same system in my Hilux Vigo.

May I ask what is your experience and opinion of it?

Hi, I have a 1995 SFA. It has central locking fitted, but the central locking only opens 1 door. The keys I have, works in the ignition, but it does not lock/unlock the doors.

Is there anybody who can help, either to fix the central locking/ restore anything to original with a working key for the door locks?

Remove you door locks and take it to a locksmit with the ignition key,they will change locks for you so that they can work with the ignition key

phone around for a new alarm to be fitted I think I paid R1600 for my sfa because insurance demanded it.Then you have new remotes/alarm and a guarantee.If you are still looking someone I could ask my brother he worked in the Cape for 8 years for Netstar.
