Lightbulb looking for info on installing remote start/security system in 00-04

Hello Focus Fanatics,

As a weekend project, i am going to install a "viper 5704v" remote start + security system in my 2004 focus on my own. The key bypass i am using is an "express-kit DB-ALL".

I have worked with countless electrical applications in my life so i do have a in-depth knowledge on how to install/work with these types of things. however this is my first remote start on a car that needs a key bypass. i have done A LOT of research and so far i am feeling pretty confident. i know that most would say to take it to a shop and have a pro do it but i would like to use this as a learning experience for myself, its not about the extra money it would cost.

While looking for info on doing this i came across many good videos and how-to guides but none on my car and as im sure many of you know all cars are different. as far as the wiring goes this is where in stuck, for both the db-all and the viper the best i can find is what each wire is (not where it goes) and for my car i can find where each wire is and the color and what not, but also nothing saying how to hook this up. it seems that a lot of this type of info is reserved for dealers and installers.

So the big question is.... I need some in depth info for both how to wire up both the express-kit db-all and the viper 5704v, specifically to my 2004 ford focus se

Any help would be appreciated, also i am new to this online community thing so if i left any info out please let me know. I hope to make a "how-to post" for all focus owners that are having the same issues after i get this all squared away.

Thanks,
Derek

Not to be rude, but if you have say you have "in depth" knowledge It makes me thing you really don't. Don't be afraid to just say I don't know how, but I can splice wires together. *Edit: the viper kit looks easy enough, but that databus looks like you couldn't have found a more complicated bybass module. Either way the instructions are clear enough, just keep following the directions for ford pats with security and you should be fine, it even has a wire color code listed for whichever vehicle you want to use.

First make a 3 key for the transponder code. You NEED 2 or its back to dealership with ya to get a $150+ key made. otherwise buy a transponder key from the dealership or ebay and have it cut.

Quote:
"to add a key....

1. Insert and existing (working) key into the ignition cylinder.

2. Turn the ignition cylinder ON (RUN) and back to OFF. Ignition should stay on for at least ONE SECOND.

3. Remove the existing key and, within TEN seconds, insert a second working key and turn it to ON (RUN) and the back OFF. Ignition must be in ON for at least ONE second, but no more than TEN seconds. Remove the key.

4. Insert the new key before TWENTY seconds have elapsed and turn it to ON (RUN). Leave it the ON position for at least ONE second and turn back to OFF.

5. The security light will light up for THREE seconds to indicate that the new key has been successfully programmed.

6. To program additional keys, repeat steps 1 through 5"

Now you need all the wire colors for an 04

I feel like this is exaggerated but then again I could see somebody doing this.

H3/6 Red/white connects to ignition red wire or to the car battery with a 30 amp fuse
h3/3 Orange connects to ignition Yellow wire
H3/4 Violet connects to starter wire gray / black after the kill ignition relay the wire that is going to the starter not the key
H4/5 Green wire starter wire gray/back this is going the other way same wire to the key side
