I use a heat gun from Harbor Freight that I picked up for $10.
I am no good at soldering either, but going to learn alot here shortly with all the leds I am getting. Course probably doesn't help that I ruined my iron by using to to fix my bumper and old grill, melted the cracks and breaks together.

Default After market alarm question

So, I'm installing an after market alarm into my truck. It has no alarm/immobilizer system from the factory.

The system allows me to wire into the 'ignition on' switch so that when I turn the ignition on, the doors (after market locks, not oem) lock and when I turn the alarm off they unlock.

I was wondering if, instead of wiring into the ignition I could wire into the neutral safety switch?(assuming it's electric and not mechanical) so that instead of working with 'ignition on', the locks lock when I take the car out of neutral and unlock when it goes back into neutral.
My wife's Saturn has this feature and I think I'd prefer it to the ignition on locking.

Any ideas anyone?

I don't see any reason you couldn't. I say try it and see if it works.

Actually there is lol I just found out.
Basically the feature isn't wired uniquely into the ignition wire. The alarm system as a whole is wired into the ignition and HAS to be. The lock feature is an internal feature of the alarm and I can't wire the whole alarm into the neutral switch.
if there was a separate and unique wire for the 'lock' feature, I could - but there isn't, so that idea is out of the window lol
