    I just bought a alarm for my 02 Taco and I remember seeing something about the door pins and dome light supervision. Something with the delay of the dome light turning off but cant find it anywhere, anyone know where or how I do it.

    Not sure what info your looking for. But if you are concerned about the delay time of the interior lights tripping your alarm it shouldn't be a problem? I can't be positive with the Taco's as I am a recent convert from Honda's but generally, when you lock the doors it cancles the delay time and shuts out the lights right away.

    I tried this once befor on a friends truck and could not get the doors to trip the alarm because of the dome light. I remember finding a write up on here with somthing about a diode or relay that had to be put in.

    ...too much shit to list.
    Pretty sure the 02 is the same as my 04. The dome light supervision is automatic when the doors get unlocked. The door triggers themselves is on the front of the fuse box with the 22 pin plug. The driver door trigger is green, the passenger door trigger is green/white (both negative triggers). You'll need to use both wires with diodes to isolate them.

    I am about to install an alarm, remote start and keyless entry made by Sigutech in my 2002 Tacoma regular cab. I am trying to see which usage will I utilize the Auxilliary Channel 5 and don't know if this is optional. Have you guys use this wire before?

    According the the wiring schematics, the door switch itself is either in the door jamb, or part of the door lock assembly. It is not really showing clearly. As mentioned above, the driver's door open switch is the green wire on the driver's door, and the green/white wire for the passenger's door. You should install a diode when tapping in, to prevent your alarm system from sending a false trigger to the Body Control Module.
