EDIT:

I think that I figured it out, at least looking at an installation manual online I think that I found the answer. Wire pin 6, blu/wht wire to the unlock wire from the door switch and pin 3 brn/wht to the lock wire from the door switch. Then wire 12vdc to pins 1 and 4, I would use the existing door lock power for that.

94MI9C1,

sorry for the delay in responding been crazy at work.

i tried the way you said but it still pops the fuse.

i wonder if my alarm built in relay only can handle so many amps. ill try running a external bosch relay.

is there anything else you recomend or thoughts?

thanks

I wouldn't think that reversing the terminals is going to do anything, that is if the relay internally is wired as it is depicted on the posted diagram. It is the same way to get power really, but generally speaking I would hook the power feed in to the common terminal as listed for the relay pin 30 and then 87 to the switch, to each is own it would all work the same in theory.

Make sure that the other leads listed above that aren't attached to anything aren't touching something, other than that it would indicate that it is a bad relay module on the astro start unit, does it blow immediately? or only after you do something like try and unlock?
