    e36Coupe has pointed out my failures as an auto electrician. So will take his advice and tidy up some of the connections in the attached.

    Nonetheless, attached is a DIY for e36s with a ZKE central locking module. If you use one key to unlock all doors and the boot (central locking) you can apply this install to other models I am sure.

    Thanks to all who provided help to me.

    Nice guide mate. I didn't mean to point out your failures- I'm sure it all works fine. I just know it would bug me if it was my car and I'd have to tidy it up! Maybe I'm just fussy.
    One thing I did notice, your guide doesn't mention deadlocking the car (the boot and petrol flap). To achieve this, you need to send a signal to the lock and unlock wires simultaneously. The easiest way to do this is to put a diode between the two. You may not need to do this if you use pin 17. I used pin 13 and needed to add this diode.

    Thanks mate, where I connect two wires end to end, I strip twist and heat shrink. I have found over years that soldering doesn't add too much, although my head unit's harness was taken to a bench and done properly.

    Where I want to splice into a wire, I guess am just lazy and use the connectors which slice into the wires.

    Thanks for advice on boot and petrol flap, I'll get back under the dash.
