Re: Door Lock: Thanks and more hints

This is one area that the Bentley manual covers nicely: stating exactly how
to troubleshoot the factory alarm.  The Bentley tells you if voltage is
expected at which terminal at the alarm control unit and under what
conditions (arm/disarm).  Basically, if you apply 12v to a certain terminal
it arms and if you apply 12v to another terminal it disarms.  Very candid.

I haven't done this in our V8 yet, but expect to in the next few months.
Heck, it took me 3 months to fix the key interface at the door locks!
