fitting remote door locks possible? (Results)
Thanks to John Karasaki and Dan Simoes for the ideas on rigging up
remote door locks on my 85 5K with my ElCheapo alarm system which
only has two (-300ma) door triggers and a dip switch for 1 or 3 sec
However, it was Allan Olesan who came through with a wiring diagram
to modify the 12V to the drivers door switch and bi-pressure pump.
Turns out to be a simple circuit on paper ... just a little confusing
to wire while head is stuffed under the dash. Overall excellent
Only addtional thing I had to do was to put an actuator/switch combo
from an '82 5K into the drivers door. The only problem I've
encountered is the plunger isn't moving freely and will occassionally
not fully close/open on the 3 second actuation ... this results in
the locks moving back to their original position ... I will see if
this can't be fixed.
(1) ElCheapo alarm(Sherwood) $55
(2) 5 pole relays $12
(1) junkyard actuator and plumbing $5
(1) extra junkyard bi-pressure pump $7.50
+ countless hours of wiring/rewiring, cuting, crimping and swearing
Thanks all !!!
