Hi all, I am hoping someone out there can help solve this problem. I bought my e36 2 weeks ago and was thrilled when DH gave me a keyless entry kit. The car has central locking via the key so the aim is to convert it to keyless (fob).
Had the kit wired in by an electronic friend but we have come across a stumbling block. When the fob is pressed it operates the hazard lights and directional light..all ok there. However it will not open or lock the doors!
Behind the glove compartment, the loom which deals with the central locking is purple (not yellow) in colour. We connected the wires from the unit to pins number 4 and 17. No joy. It appears that a previous alarm was fitted to the car as pin 17 seems to have a purple wire coming from it which is further attached to an orange and black wire. There is no alarm module so this is now inactive.
We have tried by passing the block and connecting the wires directly to the colours which are located at 4 and 17 still no joy
Please can anyone help?
