Hi. have a 97 mbz c36. Alarm is a Sound Stream ARS 2 Pager Alarm. I had also paid for a FORTIN ALL IN 1. i don't know what's wrong with alarm installer, but is using viper or directed website for reference. He was able to bypasse oem mbz alarm, i think, but car wouldn't start. He didn't even try to use fortin all in 1, which has activation code inside. On this ****, it only calls for programming if 2001 and above. He told me that ignition is analog, but I told him that even spare has chip inside. He told me that a Skyteck Alarm is better, but i wanna run what i have + like Remote design. The sounstream website also takes a fortin, but not applicable with my ride. Any help greatly appreciated. I have 4 Car's, all customized & have over 200 trophies. I want my old school rides with New school technology.
