What does "prewired" for security alarm ential?

Brochures for 2004 models mention they are "prewired" for security
alarms.

Exactly what is this wiring? One wiring access point for immobilizing
the car? Contacts on doors and windows?

On my present 89 GL I've fitted a home made immobilizing switch. Will
the "prewiring" on the '04s enable me to do this easier, or is it some
complex stuff designed to work only with a proprietory Subaru gizmo?

Incidentally, a local Suburu dealer recently quoted Can$450 extra for
an immobilizer on a new Impreza TS wagon, plus $250 for a cargo cover,
which I assume must be handcrafted out of gold laminated fabric rather
than the grey roll-up plastic thing on my current wagon. Outrageous,
IMHO!

The wires for the alarm and interrupt relay are in the harness. For
the 2003 Outback, installing the factory alarm entails removing the
radio and plugging in a module next to it. The interrupt relay
connector has a jumper which is replaced with a relay.

The sheetmetal under dash is sharp so be careful. I got 5 stiches for
not wearing gloves when removing a nut.

Click on the library link for the install manual.

The hardest part is getting the plastic dash apart (see instructions
for clip locations), otherwise the install is fairly easy.
