    Viper alarm wiring help/parking light isolation wire?

    white/brown - "Parking light isolation wire - pin 87a of onboard relay"
    I am installing a viper alarm (right now) and I'm not sure what this means. the white/brown wire is from the viper harness. where does this go on my truck? there is another wire for "parking lights" and I'm not sure what it's talking about in the relay.

    so alarm installed... lights do not flash with the lock/unlock. I have done nothing with this parking light isolation wire, and hooked up the parking light wire from viper to parking light wire of truck.

    now, look on the inside of the brain here


    these appear to be some jumpers or something. funny thing, when i bridge the jumpers with the fuse right there, the parking lights come on permanent. none mentioned in my paper work..... ideas?

    that jumper is used to select the polarity of the parking lights. it will have a positive and neg option printed on the brain. meter the wire you hooked the white parking light wire to and put that jumper in - or + depending on what ur output is.. fords are usually positive if you made the connection at the headlight switch

    haha you're about the only one left helping me over two forums.... i hooked it to the wire in the passenger kick panel harness, the wiring guide i have says the brown wire in the brown plug is the Parking light + wire, and white/black as the neg. wire. I went with the brown wire. may try rerouting and tapping into headlight switch.

    it'll be the same brown wire at the headlight switch. if you put the jumper in the positive orientation then ur lights should flash when you press lock unlock or start the truck.

    on the 06 you might have to hook up that parking light isolator.. try this.. turn your headlights on then hit lock or unlock. do the light flash now? also try the same thing with the truck on

    ok... well they don't so far but i'll try and fool with it some more. i'm also not sure my domelight supervision is working.... how can i check that? i hooked it to the black/blue wire in the kick panel that my wiring guide said to use.

    basically what the parking light isolator does is allow the lights are vehicles that have a module that controls most of the functions in the car only when the car is on. the parking light isolator i believe allows you do wire the lights up after that module. i can find out for sure while i'm at work today though. ive never hooked up dome supervision so idk about that one.

    i can turn parking lights on when vehicle is off though, does this mean it's not needed? I will go ahead and give it a shot though.

    so i turned the key on, still no dice. I tried it with jumper in both positions and couldn't get anything to happen.
    if the jumper is in the wrong position, lights would be on all the time, right? and flash off when i lock/unlock? because in one position, it used to be on all the time. now it stays on in neither position.
    and now i see it was in the positive position where they WERE on all time, and are not now. is it possible i blew something? jumper fuse is still good, and i checked the parkign light fuse the other day as i was trying to figure it out.



    ok so it's just the three jumpers at the top i'm concerned with, right? what is the row of smaller black things that look like jumpers?
    and the jumpers in the top right that are on the outside of the case, are they correct? the default was with them horizontal.

    the outside jumpers should be fine by default. if you plugged in the lights jumper so the - you probably blew a fuse because you would have short circuited the light wiring in the truck... check the truck's fuse. put the jumper in the + position and find that fuse that you blew and try it again. if not i'd go directly to the headlight switch, find the brown wire, meter it to make sure it's positive when the parking lights are on and then go.. if your parking lights dont come on at all then ur fuse is blown if they do then that's odd. dont bother with the row of black deals under the light -+ jumper.

    ok it's possible they blew since last i checked. it's just the fuse in the kick panel, right? there's not another? I didn't even try just the parking lights earlier.... should have thought of it. i do know one of my corner lights is out... but that's not really an issue. i won't be able to really rip it apart again until maybe next next weekend.
    i still have the whole autostart part to work out...

    also i thought i would be able to flash the XK05 bypass module myself, but now i see i need some other box to hook it to my computer. does it even need to be flashed, firmware says I need 5.PKTI v1.02 and the back of the bypass module says PKTI. none of the downloadable firmware from their site even has PKTI in it, other than the one it says I need, so am I good to go? if not, would I be better of selling the XK05 module and getting THIS instead?

    if you use the pkall bypass you can program it with your keys. if you use that then you need a bitwriter to program it.

    well it does say you use keys to program the xk05 too though. is it just a firmware issue? since the pkall is preloaded with all of them.

    ok so it sound like you have no clue what you're doing. so first off don't just blindly hook up wires and hope things work out. get a multimeter and test your wires. even the best tech support is wrong often. second thing, read the install manual before you do anything else. it sounds like you have no clue what you're trying to hookup. the parklight isolation wire is used when you need to isolate part of the circuit, hence the name, it's simply onboard, rather than using an external relay to open the connection. here's all the info you'll need for your truck, except the immobilizer, for that i'd recommend a pkfm if you're determined to use a dei piece but i've found idatalink tb bypasses to be much more reliable. and it sounds like you either have little or bad tech so heres pretty much everything you could need for your install.

    the one other thing is that I hope you're not using t-taps, solder your connections or at the very least twist, fold and tape.

    I have a question with the flashing parking lights. Do you think it is possible for the fuse to be blow if nothing has changed? I have not added any additional lights or did anything different beyond replacing by remote. They simply stopped flashing...

    Any ideas? Is it possible that when the remote was replaced the alarm was programmed to stop flashing the parking lights?
