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 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?
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.
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!
