I got home today and my keyless entry system had been here for a while so I figured I would open it up and see what was in it.
First of all, there were a billion wires and connectors. Then, the instructions made NO sense.
I wanted to make this so the next guy that gets shitty instructions can figure out what to do.
Note: This is for remote entry ONLY. Not remote start, not an alarm, remote entry only.
Another note: If you have an aftermarket alarm (maybe even the stock alarm), get ready for it to go NUTS. I have half ish of an aftermarket alarm, but with no key fob and no siren. Most of the wires have been cut anyway. But disconnecting the battery turned out to be a poor choice.
- Socket set (for finding a ground/undoing the battery)
- Wire cutters/strippers
1) Disconnect the battery.
2) remove the drivers side kick panel.
3) there's a square blue connector with wires, going into the door. Unclip it. Now, find a light green wire and a dark green wire, right next to each other.
4) Tap into them (this is the only part the instructions told me which wires to use) and connect it to the module. Then get your ground wires together and ground them on the grounding bolt nearby. I had 2 ground wires. Then get your constant 12+ V wire. I just ran one straight from the battery.
5) Hook it all up, and hide it under the dash.
Bam. Done. Some kits can be hooked up to a trunk release as well, but you need to get custom with that on our cars.
