I'm going to replace my current outdated alarm (circa 1998) with a viper 5000 and everything is pretty straight forward except the door lock wires. can anyone tell me what wires to use on my alarm?

I figured it out.

green/black goes to the lock wire

blue/black goes to the unlock wire

violet and violet/black both get grounded.

you don't wire it to the blinkers, you wire it to the parking lights. pull the plastic cover off the steering column and find the harness coming from the ignition switch. splice into the Red/Green wire in the Ignition Switch Harness.
