Once you find the right pins (unlock and lock), simply wire your trigger wires into that pin from your RCL unit.

    Just remember to set it up with positive trigger (rather than Negative) and our set. In total I tapped 4 wire :
    12V supply for RCL
    Ground for RCL
    Lock trigger,
    Unlock trigger

    I need to wire the indicators at some point so they flash
    ok is this what your on about when you say plug? this is behind the glovebox when i took it out

    This is the plug for the 3T module. The smaller plug is for the siren. There should also be three small 2 pin plugs, one each for the left & right movement sensors and one for the LED.

    Buy a 3T module and fob (assuming you still have the siren), plug it in and you'll have an alarm and central locking

    Theres no point in getting a 3t model, it'll cause you problems again going off at silly hours in the morning. Just fit the after market alarm in. You'll be able to follow where the wires attach to from the end of that plug

    As you've already bought a new alarm the best thing to do is to ring some mobile auto-electricians out of the Yellow Pages and get a fixed price quote to come and fit it for you.

    By your own admission you don't have any aptitude for auto electrics so unless you want your car to be engulfed in flames due to a bad wiring job I'd suggest you entrust this job to a professional.

    If anyones still interested in this I found my ZVM box under the steering column. This is for a 1991 built saloon.

    The pins I used were:
    19 to close (red/white wire)
    25 to open
    12V I got from the red/green/yellow cable in the black plug.
    It was a positive trigger too.

    For 1992 models the ZVM is supposed to be on the passenger side near the abs module.
    Pin 24 to close
    Pin 25 to open

    Got this info from here:

    Hi there, I have wired un an after market kit. It is wired into 4 and 17 of the yellow plug, but it is only locking and unlocking the drivers door and boot. When I use the key in the passengers door it locks/unlocks the passengers door, drivers door, petrol flap and boot. Any help would be appreciated.

    Also, the rear passengers door is closed and locked, and will not unlock. I have taken the door card off and pulled the metal connection, but this is not helping.

    Hi, where is pin 4 and 17 on the yellow zke4 connector supposed to connect to? Or jump these two together thus shorting pin 4 and 17?

    My current aftermarket alarm sends a 12V pulse to pin 2 when alarm fob lock button is pressed, and a 12V pulse to pin 14 when alarm unlock fob button is pressed.
