Trying to put in a Rattler Car Alarm with Remote Door Locks and Can't figure out how to wire the door locks so the remote works. another problem I am having is how to hook up the remote kill, if the vehical is started without the key it will shut off. Can any of you Bronco guinesses help me out.
first off, what year? the starter kill: you need to cut the wire for the starter under the dash and put them to the normally closed of a relay. the positive of the relay coil goes to the alarm, ground to ground. when the alarm is activated, the realy will engage and kill the ability to start the truck with a key. the door lock may require a 5-wire relay harness. what does the alarm have for outputs to door locks?

its a 90 and the alarm has about ten options for hooking up the door locks. I tried hooking them up on the drivers side but they didn't work. is there a reason that I would have to hook them up to the passenger side locks?
You have the 5 wire door lock switches. The reason you have to put em on the passenger side is because that is the master for the doors locks. You will need to get 2 door lock relays...about $5 bucks each. Do a search on the net for FORD KEYLESS ENTRY or just KEYLESS ENTRY. You will find wiring diagrams that will help you specifically for the bronco. I would send you the diagrams I paid for when I did mine but its been about a year and I couldn't find em if my life depended on it.
You will see that you have to cut the LOCK and the UNLOCK wire completely, then wire in the relays. When I did mine, I cut them inside the door panel and added the connectors with the male and female opposite of each other. That way if there ever is a problem, I can pop the panel and reconnect the wires the way they were.
Also I mounted the relays behind the passenger side kick panel for easy access and routed the wiring through the boot from the door to the fender using a wire hanger to fish the wires through.
If you cant find the diagrams... Or need any other help, email me through my profile and I will see if I can locate something that will help. I may have something at home.
