fitting remote door locks possible??
Anyone on the Q-list fitted remote door locks on a mid 80's 5K (85
5K non Q). I've tried but failed :-( Archives yielded nothing to
solving my dilemma.
Currently: I've put a pneumatic actuator w/ switch in the driver
door from an 82 5K ... works fine. My ElCheapo alarm outputs a lock
and unlock 300mA neg. pulse (1 or 3 sec) on two wires. I've relayed
these such that I get a pos.12V pulse for each wire (one
lock, one unlock).
Problem is: I could only make the bi-pressure pump work if I
diconnected the drivers lock/unlock switch and switched the alarm
to generate a 3 sec neg pulse relayed as +12V pulse for lock or
unlock. Unfortunately, the bi-pressure pump has the center 12V but
no permanent 12V on the lock or unlock state .... the result is no
pump action after a few minutes unless the pump is "primed", that
is, 12V toggled lock and unlock a few times to make the pump operate
Am I just going nuts? Why does it seem that others have
been able to do this successfully.
At this point its remote door locks or die trying.....
