    I think I'd backtrack and unwire the alarm and locks, labeling all of the connections, and see if your problem goes away. Sounds like a mismatch of components, like a hidden ground or sneak circuit in your alarm system.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    I did a lot of wiring the last few days. I wired up the Vintage air relays too. Had it all looking organized. Agree something must be grounded. God I hate trouble shooting wiring! My fear is I fried some random thing that will be hard to find.

    I worked through the wiring problem, I think it was an undersized wire going to the LS power fuse block getting kinked and causing a high resistance. I replaced the power wires going there with a couple beefy ones and it's good now. Got my Vintage Air system all wired in and the controls and vents in place, just have to charge it up.
    Installed the shorter front suspension bumpers too and along with the shocks it's riding better. I think if I raised it up some more it would ride even better, but I do like the current stance so I'll wait and see.

    Finally tracked down my AC leaks, had to buy a sniffer tool to do it. It was one hose fitting that attached to the condenser and one quick connect fitting on my AC manifold hose. The thrill of victory turned to the agony of defeat on the test drive when my water pump sprung a leak. The replacement appeared to leak too (made in USA Melling) so I have another on order.
    While it's down I decided to cut down the rear lowering blocks to raise the rear about 3/8" since it had dropped with the hydro shocks. Used the table saw with a guide and multiple thin passes, turned out nice. I have a 1/4 inch lowering block leftover if anyone need one LOL.

    So happy, went for a long drive with no coolant leaking, AC doing it's thing. Put on a Gates water pump since the made in USA Melling leaked on me. AC pump makes a little noise, seems like my GM ones in the past did too.
    Discovered I had only put in two hand tight bolts to hold on the clutch fan, yikes! That could have been ugly.
    The ride height looks perfect to me now, glad I did lowering block mod.
