On the remote start satellite of this alarm, there is and orange ACC output. The booklet says to connect this wire to the accessory wire that controls the climate control system. Where is the best place to connect this wire? Am I supposed to splice it in or make it the dedicated power supply for the Accesories in the car?

Sorry for being a dumbass here, guys, but I've done searches and they've gotten me this far. Now I'm stuck. Thanks for the help.

first, there is more than one orange wire on the 791.

second, you haven't given me any idea of what car. I will assume an impala/caprice.

If you are talking about the 10 or 12 gauge orange wire, then it just splices into the accessory wire located in your factory ignition harness. On GMs this is usually orange as well. Make sure to check it with a DMM or a test light. This light should fire positive(with a test probe or 12V with a DMM) when the key is in the accessory position as well as after the car is started.


P.S. I'm not responsible for any damage caused to your car. This is simply a reference for you.

The orange wire is the one that is on the car, not on the alarm.

I might be smoking that crizack AGAIN. Hahahaha. I coulda sworn on a 791XV you had to hook up the wire to an orange wire that was on the car.

Found out my confusion:

Ignition Pink Ignition Switch Harness
Ignition 2 Orange Ignition Switch Harness, (check engine light)

I didn't read his initial post clearly.

It says that should go to Accessory + up a couple pages. Just a wild guess, but I think that would be in fact the orange wire, 2nd ignition.

Constant 12V+ Red Ignition Switch Harness
Starter Yellow Ignition Switch Harness
Ignition Pink Ignition Switch Harness
Ignition 2 Orange Ignition Switch Harness, (check engine light)
Tach Red/Black Or Pink/Black (-) at Multi Coil Pack
Neutral Safety Wire Orange/Black Gear Select Switch
Brake Switch White Brake Switch
Trunk Release Black/White Switch
Trunk Pin Dark Green (-) Driver's Kick Panel (Rear Body Harness) (96)
Parking Lights Brown Light Switch
Head Lamp Yellow Light Switch
Door Trigger White (-) Driver's Pin Switch
Door Lock Light Blue Behind Driver's Kick Panel
Door Unlock White Positive Trigger
Horn Wire Black (-) Steering Column

That's what I have for the wiring for our car. Nothing says directly "Accessory" so it's my assumption it goes to the orange 2nd ignition. Or would it be the 1st ignition?

How big is the wire? I've only done one 791XV install (my car) and I can remember. If it's on the satellite box though, it should be a big one, and then you should be able to hook it up directly. Also, the manual says when it is just a small signal for a trigger for a relay.

thanks guys. I spliced into the orange wire coming from the ignition harness. Everything's working. The orange wire from the satellite is the same size as the power to the starter. That's why I was unsure if I was supposed to splice or dedicate the orange ACC wire.

Exactly. It's around 114 degreez right now


If I wanted to hook my stereo up to that wire, would I need a relay, or just a diode? or both?

No, to make the stereo turn on with the orange accessory wire out of the alarm. The one that I spliced into the orange wire on my steering column.

you don't want to do that because the car is still armed when you use your auto start. meaning your alarm is still functioning when you use your auto start.

If you really wanted to do that, I'm sure you could rig some kind of relay to activate the radio turn on.

you would splice into the accessory of the auto start and connect it to 86 and loop that directly to 87. ground 85. then run 30 to your radio turn on wire.


I wouldn't do it though, could be more headaches in the end.

you really shouldn't post those up, I think the administrator was on here asking people not to tell people how to do that for theft reasons :(


I don't care, because all you have to do is a search and you can achieve this information.

If you guys want, I can give you how to setup a relay, so the vats system still works.

the stereo is powered from the acc anyways, so you just hook it up like the instructions say, the vats bypass relay is in the install book for the alarm anyways.

i know it is a little late, but how did you terminate your splices,

Ilike to strip the wires back and spread them so i can slip in the alarm wires then wrap them around solder the connection if permrnant, but at this point you can just tape it tight and put a tie wrap around... guaranteed not to come loose. (this is how DEI recomends, not t-taps)

Anyone have this unit for a couple years? How well does it age? I like all the features the Viper 791XV offers, though I would like a remote that's not pretending to look like a mini cell phone.

I currently have a Bulldog remote start/keyless unit. I like how the remote could almost pass for stock, but would like the addition of an alarm.
