Default My Electrical problems!

Tried to make this easy to read with the pictures!

As some of you may know from reading my other posts,
Ive had a few electrical problems with my car. Heres a few notes.
The PO had an alarm system in it, when he sold it he didnt take everything out.
So Ive had to deal with the battery draining, and the cd player not working along with some other stuff. I've since removed
a few random wires that traced back to nothing, and replaced the crappy CD player with one of my own.

Well I just removed a GD Portalac(clicky) Along with a box which I took apart and one of the
boards has printed on it Lo-jack VT Digital. And what appears to be a antenna for the system that
ran up the windshield. I still have alittle left and Im not sure what the last part is so I took some pictures,
I didnt want to remove it yet because it appears to be attached to important stuff.

In the last piece the yellow and blue wires are crimped to stuff in the mess of wires in the steering
collum cluster

Default relay

That relay was probably part of the anti theft system- most like the starter disable. The BL (black, blue stripe) is key switched (power, ground, signal) to the ecu. Just remove the relay from the circuit and reconnect it.

its an aftermarket pioneer headunit, when I bought the car there was a junk phase linier unit in there. I cut that crap out and soldered in the pioneer. It was working until I a few days ago when it cut out.
