Default Please help me locate some areas in my car...

Went to install the remote starter in my wifes car today, but ran into a roadblock. To disable the factory alarm, I need a relay and 2 diodes, not something I can source on a holiday.

But, I am hoping someone can help me out before I tear into this and run into trouble.

Its a 98 Saturn SL2.

Where is the Factory alarm module located?

The directions say it is "Behind the panel next to the drivers rear seat on both the sedan and coupe." Which panel is this referring to? I couldn't located it.

Here is a screenshot of the directions I got from the company who makes the alarm (Crimestopper).



I'm going to order a relay, the diodes, some wire, and a project box from Mouser or digikey todya to put this in. I don't like doing half assing things, and don't want this kind of stuff flopping around in the car.

So, where exactly is this module? And, when the picture refers to "ignition" does this mean the ignition on wire, like that would run to a stereo?


And, Where is the best place to get to the...
Ignition Harness
Drivers Kickpanel (what the heck is a kickpanel?)

I also need to run a wire to the ignition coil for the tach signal. Is there an easier way to get this?

I plan on soldering and shrink tubing everything after I tap into it, just to be safe. I plan on keeping this car for a while, and I don't want to have problems later on from a bad install.

Wolfman's RKE/alarm reprogram thingy in the How-To doesn't do what's required?

Passenger rear seat on '97 coupes. That plastic panel below the window. Fold down the seat-back, pull the evil plastic pins out and pull the panel forward, reach in & pull the module off the Velcro.

...
The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

I really can't make sense of where that first picture is located.

Thanks! They put the wrong side on the information. That makes me nervous that the rest of the information may not be right...

The slope of the door frame suggests right rear as the 2nd picture displays the RKE in the right rear section next to the non-existent arm rest area.

Here is a video on removing the components you need to get to the RKE module.
