I also have not been able to turn on and off from inside the vehicle?

I installed the remote box for the unit next to the fuse box under the hood.

Do you know a way to wire up the unit so it will scan when the doors are locked and or unlocked, Plus be able to use the remote as usual ?

Again, thanks for your time!
The new scanner uses a IR eye so you will not be able to control the scanner unless you are pointing the remote at the eye in the center of the scanner but from what you are stating it sounds like you ordered the universal 22" scanner?

I do not know a way to wire the scanner for those functions but someone on here may be able to assist you with that wiring.

The Remote is IR or Line-of-Sight (like your TV remote) you have to point it directly at the sensor in the center of the scanner.

Jonathan, thanks for the info about cutting the wires will not void the warranty. Going to install it in just a bit. Hardest part is going to be putting the radiator cover back in place.

I look forward to seeing the scanner installed.

IR eye, that makes sense now. I may have to wire up a switch inside then? I want to be able to turn them on and off from the drivers seat and use the remote to only adjust the patterns. I think an on off switch in line with the power wire may do this?

You can wire a "kill switch" so when you flip the switch the scanner will turn on with the last function it was on.
