Okay, this is my first how-to, so I hope it helps. This is the remote starter I bought off eBay.

You have to remove the kick panel on the drivers side and take out two Phillips head screws from the plastic piece under the steering wheel.

The other screw is hidden behind the plastic strip between the dash and the door.

Once all the plastic is out of the way start the wire connections. All the wires are behind the kick panel for the install. The large green wire is constant 12v(turn the key through all positions). I hooked the starter unit power lines and the power supply for the transponder here.

Then the ignition wire here to the white wire with green chaser.

The transponder comes with a wire ring to fit around the ignition switch. I just popped off the ring and inserted the ring around the switch from the underneath.

You can see the wire (black and white) hanging down. I hooked the brake switch to the yellow wire on the lower brake switch. (there are two brake switches above the pedal the yellow wire is on the lower switch.)
After making all connections to the control box, I used double sided tape to mount it up and under the dash. (over the kick panel.)

I used cable ties to mount the transponder to a bracket behind the dash plastic.

I then wrapped the wires back up and tested the starter.

Once I knew it was working, I put everything back and zipped tied all the wires out of the way. The Bulldog starter has great tech info and support.
