Hood Alarm

Hi,

Yesterday, my kids was in my Wrangler unlimited 2008 and I had locked doors by remote.

I was talking with a friend when my kid open rear door from inside, the alarm start and i stop it with remote.

Now i had the idea to install a switch to monitor the hood opening and wire it with one door switch.

Anyone can help me to find the good way to wire it?

Any comment or Help will be great

I would suggest you simply buy a hood lock. 4X4 Offroad offers them. They replace the rubber hood latches.

Thanks,

But i think a parralel connection with a door wires should be easy to do,
this way if hood latch are open, it will show "door" alarm on console,

No one has a wiring diagram for ?

I can pass a wire from inside the hood to connect near door connector, but it is a
bad way to do it, i guess the door wire is passing somewhere near the firewall anyway,

The door open presence should be a "normaly open" switch,..connecting another N-O switch
for the hood is a good idea,..no?

Help me plz

Thanks

No. You need a normally closed pin switch. Its open when the hood is shut and makes contact when the hood is open. Wiring it in parallel with the rear pin switch would work. I used to get all my pin switches from the car stereo shops. They usually carry car alarms and accessories for them.

I know you want a alarm for the hood but I would suggest a nice set of hood locks to go along with the alarm. I don't regret having installed mine.

Hood locks are for pussies. Just hook up a train horn to the alarm. Once that hood opens they'll have no choice but to go home and change their underwear.
And get their ears checked.

Have someone destroy your new Optima Gel Cell trying to steal it and you will get hood locks.

Train horn would be funny tho

Is this a factory alarm or aftermarket? I would go back to the rear pin switch and check the wire color. Then find out where it meets up in the dash area and run a wire tap from there to the hood pin switch.

it will be tough to give you a wiring diagram without knowing which car alarm you have. You need a specific model number so you can get the correct module. Then it is just plug and play. Most hoods use a popper switch. It looks like this.
