    Fitting aftermarket alarms....Toad..

    Allrate,looking at getting a addon for my coupe so ive got sum interior sensors,ive been told the Toad 850 is the best addon,ive found some where that sells it for £99 (if any one can find it cheaper please tell me),

    But i was wondering if any one has any experience in fitting one? what are they like to fit? how hard?

    Or is there any alarm fitters in the Doncaster / South Yorkshire area?

    Thanks guys

    Replied to your email mate

    Autowatch are fairly easy to fit and come with all fitting and programming instructions

    Sigma's and Toads don't

    Don't mean to hijack this thread - but what would be a good option for me for the Frontera? as it doesn't seem to have an alarm or immobiliser fitted? no central locking either... would this be hard to fit?

    NO CDL on the frontera??? Sure it's not just bust as I thought they all had it

    Anyway as long as you can use a test light and know what your looking for then they are alright really

    Thought it was a bit strange - will have to investigate further as a few of the electrics were shot.

    Can even use a multimeter mate.....so tell me more.....

    All depends how far you want to go with a alarm Scott, just for your own peice of mind?

    I'll talk you through it on msn or PM sometime

    Oh and the CDL from memory just has a 3 wire switch in the drivers door and the relay for it is in the passenger kickpanel
