    Clifford Concept 470 DIY Install

    Just got the alarm system and decided to fit myself as i don't have £200 to pay someone to do it.

    Reading through the manual and i understand some of it.

    Just have some questions.

    Am i right in understanding you have to fit your own bonnet pin?

    Is it the same for the boot pin? or can you somehow use existing pins.

    What type of door locks does the astra have? the manual has about 8 types.
    Im hoping its 'positive 12-volt pulse' the others seem to require more parts.

    If your familiar with this specific alarm system then wire 'h1/5 green/white (-)', says i can use it to protect my stereo if i attach it to ground - how does this work??

    I would Leave this upto the pros Cliffords are very temperamental and can give no end of problems if the fit is bad this is not a DIY fit, if you have pins switches they can be utilized and the locks are neg pulse, stereo thing, continuity loop if the earth goes then the alarm sounds.

    Boot switch you can use your boot light earth for (i think), yes you'd need to fit a bonnet switch as well.
    As above though, cliffords are really sold to be pro fitted and even once fitted can be a ball ache to program in, i'd suggest swallowing down and getting it fitted properly because you'll either a)fall out and wish you never bought it b)loose your temper with it half fitted, take it to a pro and them charge you double to put it right

    Got to agree with above really. These clifford alarms are tempremental, i've seen so many with problems that i've taken off and thrown in the bin

    You can hook onto the orgional boot switch, bonnet switch will need to be fitted and the locking is negative pulse
