I don't know where or how to get you started, if you don't know an amp from
a volt. you need a knowlegable, helpful, and nearby friend. Have you read
and down loaded all the stuff from Chris' site? I have contributed some
integrating wiring diagrams thereto.
The easiest install RKEs are those that have the output relays built in,
neater, more compact, and less wiring to do. You should be looking for
instructions for integrating with an "electrically activated vacuum locking
system", some call it a Type E system, as used by MB and Audi. I think that
the "one wire systems" Type F, also called Cut to lock, Ground to unlock,
were used only on rice burners.
