    Ken, certainly no disrespect intended, but I believe we have derailed. The intent of my drawing was not to make a universal alarm system, and of course a separate ground wire would be needed for plastic. Rather, my drawing(s) represent a simple solution to the OP’s question for a latching relay set up that would control a 12 volt horn mounted under his seat that would activate when the doors are opened without being overly complicated. I believe I accomplished that.
    I’m sorry for any miss givens, miss understanding, or confusion, anyone is welcome to use or lose the design at their choice. I bid a fair goodbye......

    No disrespect intended or implied. I freehand most of my diagrams, not that computer savvy, and usually end up constructing them on a breadboard to iron out my mistakes.

    No disrespect intended to anyone.

    Most of the circuits I use and embellish upon are known, proven and working industry standard circuits. Occasional I make errors and I’ll admit I did not make it clear on the prior drawings that the activation and door jam switches were copy and paste generic internet pictures, not necessarily shown in their correct positions. I also assumed everyone would see the drawing was in its standby state with the activation switch on, ready to be triggered by the door jam switch when it engaged and that I was using a standard automotive relay footprint.

    Im sorry I mislead anyone to think otherwise.

    The drawings were done quickly on the fly with no written instructions to explain function. My intention was and has always been to help, not confuse. I believe I straightened all misgivings out in the later drawings. While I try to keep on topic and uncomplicated, unfortunately I don’t always succeed. It is never my intention to mislead, misguide, misdirect, argue, fight or complicate issues, and again my apologies, I don’t always succeed.

    Though I have acquired some knowledge, I’m not to be considered an expert by any means on any topic. However, I truly enjoy sharing knowledge and helping. Unfortunately sometimes I assume everyone else can see what’s swimming inside my head and unintentionally leave info out. It’s not intentional, certainly not meant to misguide. Lately, I seem to be a catalyst of misleading, misguiding, misdirecting, arguing, fighting and/or complicating issues.

    Sorry, I’ll refrain....

    NEVER! We all know that you were just offering a helping hand and NOBODY said you were the expert.. ( well, maybe me!?!? 8-) ) Everyone here enjoys your posts and knows that you are one of, if not THE, most helpful guys on this site. You've got nothing to apologize for. Now that I've typed out this wordy response... what I wanted to say originally was "BULLSHIT... Stop That!"

    I couldn't agree more! I've always appreciated your posts and find them to be some of the most helpful, well thought out information anyone provides. I found your drawings to be just what the doctor ordered, and I never questioned the details of the "jam switch" - it's obvious that it's a NO switch that closes when actuated. That's just the way things work!

    Keep up the "helps"! They are much appreciated and of great value!

    Got the alarm wired in, I went with the remote on/off key fob like you suggested. I was wondering if the remote relay was going to draw the battery down overnight, so I first tuned it on and left it set for 24 hours. It cranked over like crazy yet so that was not an issue. Here's a video of it in action, its pretty quiet so turn your volume up.

    The relays are off until the door opens, the only power draw at rest is the remote receiver and it's small.

    Yes, The remote relay makes quite a click when it turns on so I was a bit curious about it's draw.
