    Also note there is a switch that must be pressed if u try to test this with the hood open right by the coolant tank, on the passenger side, or just shut the hood...

    Here is how I had to wire our EX, the clip to remove the connector is on the north side in this pic...

    Thanks for that picture. I was wandering how it was inserted since I'm at work.

    Definitely going to do this, thanks OP.

    I cannot see OP's pictures? I hate the stock locking alarm on my 16' Optima, so I'm going to swap mine out today.

    This thread was from a little over 4.5 years ago, so that'as why most all of the pics are now broken and not showing.

    Figured it out. Thanks so much O.P. I just electrical taped the hell out of the wires because I didn't have heat shrink. Hopefully that will be ok....

    This chirp on the 514LN sounds so much better than the old wimpy beep that sounded like it should be locking a mini smart car or golf cart sized automobile.

    I cut the black wire to make the chirp a tiny bit louder. Will make it a little easier for my wife & I to find our car in a busy parking lot when we forget where we parked it. Paid $9.68 total (shipped!!!). Best mod ever for the price!
