There are some jobs that I get a really good kick out of doing. As is normally the case, most of the installation is hidden so will never to be swooned over and admired, I simply have to take a quite satisfaction that it’s done to my standards as opposed to horrid little crows nest created by one of the local car audio shops scrunched up behind the panels!
However when your customer notices the attention to detail on what is visible and appreciates the effort put in it make the job particularly sweet.
Today I had a 2014 Mitsubishi Pajero in for a Cobra AK4615 upgrade alarm. My Customer had driven down from Auckland with his wife on his way down to the South Island for a holiday. He had booked the job in some weeks ago after spending time on the website.
The Pajero has existing keyless entry and transponder immobiliser which makes the Cobra AK4615 the perfect fit. It has no factory alarm (at least not the NZ specified models) but the later models do have blanks where optional ultrasonic sensors would go in the centre roof lining trim by the rear view mirror.
Here is how they look when back in the car:
If you have an older model then it is not the end of the world as the Cobra Ultrasonic pods are a perfect colour match:
The there is the LED
That’s all there is to see, the engine bay remains unblemished as the siren is hidden and there is a factory bonnet switch built into the latch.
The Pajero also has twin horns so along with the Cobra siren which make the alarm hideously loud.}
Remote Mirror Fold
Mirror fold comes as standard on the Pajero and a 3rd press of the lock button on the factory remote folds them in.
If you don’t have working Mitsubishi remote controls then the AK4198 is a great option and I can make the mirrors fold in on the first press of the Cobra remote.
