I'm currently installing a remote start in my 2010 CRV LX and I am supposed to connect a wire to the (+) Parking Light Wire. My instructions said it would be red above the fuse box but I can't figure out which red it is. Anyone know off the top of your head?

I'm leaning toward Red 2...

Good News! I was able to get the starter completely hooked up and it works! To go back to my original post, the (+) Parking Light Wire was actually the red wire in the same harness as "Red 6" but not the one I pointed the arrow to.

I tested the starter 3 times and it worked and I was able to shut it off with the brake pedal as intended so I was quite happy. It took me approximately 10 hours start to finish.

While it works, it isn't 100% where I want it to be yet. Here are some remaining questions I have:

1) How do you remove the stupid driver kick panel? I need to get inside to connect the power lock wires but it wouldn't move. I pulled so hard, part of it started to break.

2) The remote start only works with the antenna attached and the instructions show the antenna should be located near the top of the windshield. So:
A) How do you run the wire from under the dash through the top of the dash?
B) Taping a wire up the whole side of my windshield seems tacky. Is there a better option or can it be at the bottom of the windshield?

3) The gray wire is supposed to connect to the provided hood pin to prevent the car from remote starting when the hood is open.
A) How do I run a wire from under the dash out to the engine without drilling a hole?
B) I will have to drill a hole for the hood pin; any suggestions on a good location?

4) 2 features I didn't connect, and I don't know if they are worth it are the horn chirp when the car remote starts and the trunk pop with the key fob. I wouldn't mind the trunk pop, but as far as I understand the instructions, I would need to buy a relay and connect it which seems more trouble than it's worth.

Like I said, the remote start works so if I can't fix any of that, it doesn't matter that much. I can always secure the antenna under the dash, I just think the range wouldn't be as good. I would like my wife to be able to start the car from inside her work.

I may not be much help. But in reference to

Question 1: Your probably overlooking a screw that needs to be removed.

Question 2: You may just have to figure that one out yourself and what you can live with. I would think your instructions would have that all mapped out for you.

Question 3A: You have lots of wires that pass thru the firewall. Just take and poke the wire your wanting to run thru and it should pass through.

Question 3B: I would put your sensor in question up near where your hood bump stop adjusters are. Probably not the politically correct term, but I'm sure you know what I mean.

kick pannel the one where the hood release is? remove the scuff plates with a flat screwdriver, the pry the kick pannel with a long pry bar there are 3 clips that hold it it place.

remove the pillar trim and hide the antenna wire in there, hide it on top of the headliner for the top part

like dyi guy said snake the wire for the hood switch thru the firewall.
