    Hi,

    I am just installing an alarm for a friend and was wondering if anyone here has managed to link a 3rd party alarm unit into the indicators?

    The alarm has a power lead to the flashers to flash when armed/disarmed/alarm going and the recommendation seems to be to wire them into the Hazard light switch, but the TLC one has about 10 wires to it and it appears that a number of them will need power.

    Are there any short cuts - I don't really want to have to plumb in a stack of relays.

    The installers were able to do it on my vehicle. I have no idea of how they did it.
