    Alright im having a little trouble installing my remote start in my 98 taco.. I havent put it to the truck yet, im trying to figure out the wiring first.

    So im trying to install a Viper 5101 with smart start. The problem im haing to the the H3 harness so the 12 AWG wires.

    H3/1 PINK (+) IGNITION 1 INPUT/OUTPUT = black/yellow
    H3/2 RED/WHITE (+) FUSED (30A) IGNITION 2 / FLEX RELAY INPUT 87 = black/red wire
    H3/3 ORANGE ACCESSORY OUTPUT = blue/red
    H3/4 VIOLET STARTER OUTPUT = black wire
    H3/5 RED (+) FUSED (30A) IGNITION 1 INPUT = black/yellow
    H3/6 PINK/WHITE IGNITION 2 / FLEX RELAY OUTPUT 30 = black/red
    H3/7 PINK/BLACK FLEX RELAY INPUT 87A key side (if required) of FLEX RELAY
    H3/8 RED/BLACK (+) FUSED (30A) ACCESSORY/STARTER INPUT


    So really what im asking is what do I do with the H3/7,/8 wires. and what the hell is the flex relay?
    I read some where that I should just tap the 3 fused wires together and put then on a constant 12V.

    If you could please help me out that would be awesome.

    ...too much shit to list.
    The viper flex relay is a "flexible" built in relay.
    Think of it as just a relay that you have access to terminals 87, 87a, and 30.

    EDIT:
    H3/7 Guessing it's not needed on your truck. You don't have any factory ignition bypass
    H3/8 Hook to a wire that is +12v during crank and ignition
