Remote Start/Alarm w/auto rear defrost wireing question?

I am getting a remote start/alarm put in and have the option to have it turn on the rear deforst from the remote, but they do not know the wires for it. They said I can leave it with them and let them play around and find it, but I thought I would go to where people know more about 8th gen civics.

Anyone have any idea what wire it is to hook this up? I have a 2007 EX sedan.

you looking for the wires in teh car? or the wires of the alarm/remote start?

the wires in the car can be found behind the defrost button....
the remote start should have come with iinstructions/wire diagram.

honestly, get a new installer if they are having you do the legwork to get information they should know or have access to.

I thought the same thing about the installer, but it is from Ultimate Electronics which is a very good audio dealer here in the Minneapolis area. They have a computer data system that would tell them the wires, but there is currently no info.

Not sure how the defrost module, remote starter and rear defrost all work together, but I don't think it is just a simple hook it up to the switch and it works type thing. I may be wrong though.

the climate control in the car has a harness plugging into the back of it. im sure if they look back there and use a volt meter to determine which wire gets power then the button is pressed, they can use that wire.

200ft?

any good directed alarm/remote start with a better security system works MUCH further than that and can be had for the same price and the OEM upgrade.


Yes , living in the city, not so great neighborhood,. I like the Honda one. No lights flash when start and the doors remain locked. If any window or door forced open, the engine will shut down.
