They should be vacant. You will need to remove the plug and take out the brown plug, then add the new wires.
    I think pin 4 was already wired in my car, although I did push a new pin in for pos17, 13 can also be used. To lock the fuel cap you'll have to power the lock and unlock wire at the same time with a diode inbetween but i'll get into that if you want to lock your fuel cap

    Ok here are some photos of what it looks like behind my glovebox. Ive taken pictures of all angles to make it as clear as I can. On the left the aluminium case I think is the abs module. There is a big bunch of wires with two relays in the centre. Then on the far right clipped to the heater matrix pipes there is a white plug and a black plug. I have tried the black plug but it doesnt work. I couldnt find the yellow plug to try 4 and 17.

    I can't seem to see a zke body cpntrol module there mate. Behind the glovebox there should be a black box with three plugs on the front and two on the rear off it. Have a look under the passenger side carpet.

    I thought I was going mad with everyone saying the plugs behind the glove box. I have fitted three of these kits to an escort, vw caddy and honda crv and this one definetly has me stumped. I did try wiring it to the wires in the drivers door but could only get it to lock and went through too many fuses trying to get it to work!! I will look under the carpet tomorrow, otherwise I am just going to fit an actuator to the drivers door pin to pull and push it.

    Hi 92e36 - sorry you are having trouble. My 318is is only a year or so newer, but looks nothing like yours behind glove box.... I can see why you can't find the yellow loom connecting to the central lock module....

    Was going to post some pics, but I just got too tired and still have to connect a wire to the brake switch. After I have done this tonight, I will post up some pics.

    Oakey dokey! I now have remote central locking!
    I couldnt find the yellow zke plug so I fitted an actuator to the drivers door to pull and push the door pin. Not the way I would have liked it to work but it works so better than it not. Thank you to everyone who helped. Greatly appreciated
    Quick question, I dont get hot air through the face vents only on the windscreen, is this nomal?

    yep thats normal mate, if you look closely at the knob its coloured blue when on the face setting. But if you get it in the right place, pointing straight down you can get some warm air coming through

    Glad you got it sorted mate, although not so good you couldn't connect to existing central lock.

    Here is a picture of what's behind my glove box, bit different to yours. You can see the yellow plug for the central locking module - except the yellow cover has been removed so that I could connect my lock and unlock signals to pins 4 and 17. They are just pushed in with a bit of glue.

    Bit of a mess in there I know as I also have a digital set top box which connects to the AUX in port on my head unit - works pretty good too.

    I will post up all my pics soon to help others buying after market remote.

    Still having problems though as when I arm the unit by locking doors, the courtesy lights come on and fade out, tripping the siren... So still using keys until I get it sorted, probably leave that connection out.

    Early E36s had a ZVM module to control the body electrics. This was replaced in 93/94 by the ZKE module which is what all the other advice is related to. This had a yellow or violet coloured plug. You could technically wire yours in a similar way but you'll probably struggle to find details of the wiring for your car.
    Good work on getting it sorted though. A good work around.

    I think you could do with tidying up your wiring a bit! Or is it a case of out of sight out of mind?

    And I think that's choc blocks and scotch locks I can see too. Do your car a favour and get yourself a soldering iron and some heat shrink! Definitely preferable to glue!
