OK, I wired a relay as above and it KINDA works... if I touch a ground to the pin that the starter wire ( - when disarmed) wire is connected to, the scanner goes off. It will then stay off until I turn on the alarm (as it should). but then when I turn the alarm off, the scanner won't go off unless I touch a ground to the starter wire side again... HELP!!
First of all, thanks for all your help! I went to Radio Shack an bought a 275-226 relay, but it only has 4 pins!!! I went back to try and find one with 5 and didn't see one anywhere... The relay I bought has pins 85, 86, 30, and 87, NO 87a.... help!?!
I apologize. I did give you the wrong part number. That is a SPST relay. You need a SPDT relay. I can't seem to find one on their web site to give you the part number, put I know that they sell them because I have bought them there before. If you can't find them there, you should be able to buy them at any car audio store, or even at the car audio installation dept at Circuit City or Best Buy. They are the most common relay ever used. Tell them that you need a "Single Pole Dual Throw non-latching relay".
