Default fuel door lock install

I got myself a fuel door lock that is supposed to lock and unlock with the car doors.

Now I can not find the correct wires, or a place to mount the lock. This was an option on my car but never installed.

Can anyone post some detailed pictures of the mounting location, lock motor installed, and the latch possition inside the fuel door? And does anyone know what color wires connect to the lock motor.

thanks,
John

Why not just get a locking gascap instead of having to deal with the whole locking door thing?

I got the locking gas cap. Hate it. Would rather have the door lock instead.

I would suggest using the electrical schematics in the Factory Service Manual. If you don't have one, get one. It'* invaluable.

It is definitely on my list of things to get.

In the mean time, the people on this forum are very valuable sources of information.

Pat ran to the rear door lock. It'* the same circuit the factory used. It'll work off the second push of the remote for "all doors"

We had peeled it off the parts car and then drilled the holes and bolted or riveted it onto his car. A little more work and presto...
