If I would have seen this sooner, I could have sent you one too. We just pulled one out of an 08 Titan at work the other day...chucked it in the trash. It was a t-tapped clusterf$%k of an install.

thanks for the offer greg. it is interesting looking at both of the ones these guys sent me and seeing how different they were installed. and the people at karr are the biggest pain in the butt to try to get anything from cause they "dont sell retail" and "have professional installers so they dont give out the install sheets." what a joke. they didnt even use the same wires on both of the ones that the guys sent me and they both came out of an element. so much for uniformity... im just glad these guys yanked them when they did and i would strongly encourage anyone else with one to do the same after seeing the actual makeup of the units themselves and the obvious lack of install training these guys that install them for the dealership have. karr=poopy

I think some combination of grey/blue, grey/red or grey/green were lock and unlock on the one we removed from the Titan. They were actually tied to the two wires that you add to the BCM to control factory alarm arm/disarm on the non smart key equipped trucks.

I was one of the people who sent mine to Yoda. Mine is the one with all the twisted/braided wires. Anyway, I've said it before, it looks like a pita to install up under that dash trying to get the right wire. There are a lot of connections and not a lot of room to work with.

Anyway, I'm just curious, how would someone make this thing functional? There is a little module that is attached to the end of one of the connectors that was mounted on the outside of the dash but there is no light or button on it. Would it just require changing that module out with different one? The KARR 4040A operating instructions available on the we talk about an LED, mine had no LED.

While it was installed in my car and now without there is no difference in the way the doors lock or what beeps - it seems to have been truly deactivated.

as far as making it functional i will try to get what i can from how the wires are grouped together and put it on the test bench an send signals either power or ground to get it to arm and disarm. my main objective is to try to get it to let me add the remote start i sell to it without freaking out, but if i had it my way everyone would do what you guys did and trash it. you would have never really seen it do anything unless you were trying to set it off by locking the doors with the remote and leaving the windows down and sticking your hand in and unlocking it and then opening the door. it has a shock sensor but who knows how well that works.
