Dummy Guide to fitting remote central locking
« on: 10 August 2009, 21:59 »
Searched high and low for instructions but could not find everything in one post so here goes

i went for the rightclick ke669 but the instructions should work for all rightclick models - about 25 - 30 quid with 2 flip keys like the new vag ones

this the main connecter that goes into the central locking brain -




first pop this top trim off with fingers or flat head ( the trim just above the white connecter )


this will reveal two screws - there are another 2 in the bottom 2 corners and 1 under the fuse flap - take the trim off



remove the plastic grill with foam lining under the fuse box - it just pops off if you pull

there are 2 white clips holding on each side of the fusebox - these pop off if you pull them towards you

the fuse box needs lifting up and slowly easing forward and let it hang - make sure battery is disconnected

now find the loom that goes into the drivers door at the right side of where the fuse box was - follow the loom a few inches back and ease the loom wrap - take the green and grey wires away as below

you connect the white wire from your kit to the grey wire - and the white and black wire to the green wire. this is lock and unlock and i got it wrong first time so when i pressed lock the car opened and when i pressed unlock the car locked. just changed them around.


Connect the thick red wire to this connecter to the top right - this is for power 12v dc - my phone ran out of battery so i couldnt take more pics till 30 mins but after this i connected the yellow and yellow black to the same red for 12v dc - i guess you can connect srtaight to the battery but thats up to you.

you can see where i connected the thick red wire - later the yellow and yellow and black went in the same place



there is an earth connection under the steering column and there is a black wire already connected there - connect the thick black wire here - just open the nut and wrap the wire and re tighten

can see the black wire hanging down

there are 2 brown wires for the indicatolrs to flas and these splice into the connectors on each stalk - i tried doing this but my left side wouldnt flash so i left them - the pink wire is for the blip blip to let you know its locked and blip once for unlock - i borrowed mu mates siren for his toad alarm and this worked connect the pint to red on the siren and earth the other siren wire anywhere on the chassis- i will feed the pink into the engine bay when i manageto find a siren. thats all for the wiring make sure the wires are insulated properly and spare wired are wrapped tight - find a place for the control unit and secure with sticky pad provided

you get 2 keys - any place will cut them - dont put them in the housing - get them cut first £3 it cost me -

take the rclick badge off by flicking it with a knige - open 2 screws underneath - thats the only way it comes apart - take the key holder ring and open the 2 scews - one on each side - replace with new key - take care when opening so u know how to wind the spring back

Big big thanks for doing this, it's something i'm wanting to do.

I have a question, what's the best way to connect wires to other wires? Mainly the thick red wire to
the connector?


Again, i thank you. :cool:
