    central locking wire colours.
    white with grey line down it is unlock wire.
    white with brown line and yellow bands is lock wire
    white and red is dead lock
    on mine i had to cut the unlock wire for the alarm i fitted else just blew fuses but try just cutinig in the green to the unlock
    and blue to the lock (do not cut any wires yet just take a bit of the insulation of to find out which on goes where as it could be the other way round)
    then clearly the positive and negative the the remote unit.
    try this and let me know but the wire are indeed behind the glove box on the ZKE as pointed out above. hope this make sense for you

    Ok.....Thanks for the info , however somethings not quite right. Tapped into the two wires you mention first way round, the unlock button locked it then pressing the lock button blew the fuse. I replaced the fuse and tried the other way round.....that just blew the fuse

    Lack of fuses has stopped play for the moment.

    Thanks, Starting to do my head in as it should be simple
    Think I have the right wiring diagram, can anyone in the know look at it and tell me which colours are for locking and unlocking, Im looking at drivers door lock assuming this will operate both doors? Cheers.

    When you operate the remote for open or close, do the open and close wires on your remote unit read +12v?

    The only instructions I have for the remote are on the side of the box (post 1) I think looking at that it does......

    Others who have fitted similar things before may know better, but looking at that diagram it looks to me as if that is for fitting remote locking where no central locking existed before, as it doesn't mention the car's control module. If the green and blue wires give a +12v pulse when operated, it shouldn't blow the fuse. If the system is supposed to control the actuators by itself the signals are probaly changing polarity to open and close.

    Do you have a multimeter? Can you check this?

    to get mine to stop blowing fuses i had to put 12v+ on the dead lock (white/red) then cut the lock wire and attach the wire from the remote to this.
    this had my head scratcing for a long time honestly this is the only way. the doors are neggative trigger thats why you have to use the deadlock first.

    You are correct it is for cars originally without central locking, was hoping to use just the remote module in conjunction with my own central locking.

    Sadly no multimeter, wouldnt know how to use it

    I am a complete beginner when it comes to electrics, other than head units, speakers and amps, I know nothing.
