SWEET! I have keyless entry now. And I didnt have to pay the stereo shop a dime, beyond the actual unit. ($175 for unit, $200-250 for install. OW! I should become an installer)
I would like to give mad props to BlackIce, because his info was very helpful and helped clear up any doubts I had in my mind as to regarding NOT blowing up my new toy. I was 75% on the right track, BlackIce made it 100%.
Anyway, its pretty simple. I kinda feel dumb :>
1. Locate your cars central locking relays, its one of the items that Blownville is selling atm in the buy/sell section. http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ight=brumfield
I hope it is ok I use his picture as refrence, his is awesome because its OUT of the car and has the colored wires dangling out the back for refrence so its a prefect pic. This guy hides behind your glove box, where all the other relays are.
2. The two outermost wires "F" and "A" or Black and Blue, these are your door lock switch wires or COMMONS. One of them locks, one of them unlocks. Bare some jacket off them and solder up to the brainbox harness. Blue is lock, Black is unlock.
3. The orange/black wire, its your 12+v constant hot at all times. Bare some jacket on this one and solder up BOTH your NORMALLY OPEN wires to this guy. And use some fuses, this wire can dump up to 30amps before its fuse goes. I put fuses on the commons too, cuz im paranoid like that.
4. Thats it. You have keyless entry now.
I would definately like to say this was not exactly something that takes an hour or two. I honestly thought I would do it in about 5-6 hours or so In an afternoon/evening. Nope. Hows 12 over three days. I guess 12 hours is not so bad for my frist time. And this being a rather complicated little unit didnt make it any easier. Anti-Grind feature threw me for a loop too till I read more stuff on the internet. The pressure of being poor like kenny did not help either I bet as I didnt want to wreck the cars door locks or the brainbox itself. Anyhow, in the end I can press a button in the morning when I wake up and its minus 30 hop in the shower and have a warm car to go to work in. Not to mention no more frozen locks. Canada is hard on cars man. hehe.
