    and of course while cutting into trunk wiring loom reconnect all broken wires AND SLIDE WIRING LOOM FURTHER INSIDE TRUNK LID ( theres plenty of wire length inside car) to move broken part into trunk lid. now you have fresh part of loom in bending place

    central locking

    central locks work only when doors are closed!

    by using this scheme you can deadlock your doors and you do not need to connect alarm central locking driving wires to any other power source. they just communicate car wiring
    hi,
    thanks for such a great "how to"
    i am a little confused though.
    if i use this scheme (quoted above) i do not need to use diodes?
    i take it that the above is conected to a relay.

    any help would be great.
    thanks

    Boring E36
    I had a Key fob that came with my car but I lost it. How do I know that I had an alarm? Key fob didnt work so I guess it was deactivated.
    U MAD?

    Sweet! I'll have to give this "window problem" a try. My driver's side window has been REALLY annoying now.

    Anybody try this out yet?

    OK
    to get cl working properly you have to connect strictly by the scheme. these are relays that are in alarm itself. if no diodes are on the scheme then they are not needed. comfort signal has to be positive.
    it seems like i have to explain how the scheme works, i will do it later.

    and pm is always faster tham post here

    great write up. You'll save the community here thousands in labor costs, and prevent a theft or two while we're at it. nice work.

    Wow, I'm surprised no one asked about the window problem. Could you elaborate more on that? You just showed us where it should be but don't mention how to do it.

    let me explain central locking once again as this seems to be the most difficult part:

    did you notice that you have to cut lock wire?
