Default Installing a prostart Remote Car starter into a 91 integra GS

Hey guys,

I am installing a Prostart CT-3271 remote car starter in my 1991 Acura Integra GS.
My girlfriend bought it for me for christmas... and I am trying to install it. She really wants me to install it mainly for the remote door opener but the remote starter would be nice.

So far I think I have found all the necessary wires...

Constant 12V+
Neutral Safety Wire
Brake Switch
Parking Lights
Hood Pin
Door Trigger
Door Lock
Door Unlock

I haven't found the emergency brake wire... but I don't know if this is essential or not. Going to to grab the wiring sheet, it states that parking brake is N/A.

When I hook up all the wires into the module, the lights blink 4 times.

Now my problem is that I can not access the "Programming Mode". I tried pressing the hoodpin for 4 secs and then releasing and pressing the programming assistant button for 4 secs and both did NOTHING. Does anyone know which wires are essential for entering programming mode? I am 99% sure I have the correct wires. And is there a possibility that I have a fault module?

Thanks for your help guys. If I get this to work, I will post pics.

the e-brake wire will be right at the base of the hand lever... to note, there shouldn't be a separate "Neutral Safety Wire" and "Emergency Brake Wire", they are both the same thing... pretty much those wires tell the remote start "the parking brake is engaged"

and if the alarm is supposed to do something (like enter programming mode) then chances are very likely that the alarm isn't seeing what it needs to see to do so... meaning, incorrect wiring

Actually they are meant to be separate. one goes to the neutral switch (grounds when car is in park or neutral, this is what prevents you from turning the key to position 3 when in a drive gear) and the other goes to the parking brake switch.

Both look for a ground though, so bypassing the switch is possible (if not irresponsible). If you are in a manual you don't have a neutral safety switch.
