|EF/EL Central Locking Replacemen|
This document describes how to remove your old central locking system, then wire and install the new system using a Jaycar off the shelf central locking kit.
Take off your door trims (all of them) and unplug the motors, then proceed to remove them by drilling out the rivets (they are hard work to get out, have patience). Once you have the rivets out, the motors will be floating around, twist it around and remove the motor from the wire attaching it to the door lock, leave the wire attached to the lock.
At this stage we arenâ€™t going to place the new motors in, as its easier if they are working so we can check they are able to operate the lock properly, in most cases you will need to make some adjustments for it to work correctly.
Next step is to wire in the control box near the BEM to take the signal and send it to the master door lock, which then sends the signal through to all the slave motors.
You will need to remove your dash
This is where we need to find our way through the large amount of wires included in the Kit. Start from the white connector, there are four wires you should see are the shortest, they are brown and white (on one end), and black and red (on the other end). Black is Ground, Red is Power, White and Brown are for hooking up to a separate alarm with a remote locking output, even if you have a separate alarm, they arenâ€™t much use as they wonâ€™t save you any work.
Brown <- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - > Red with Yellow Stripe
White <- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - > Yellow with Black Stripe
Only connect the end of the BEM wire that comes out of the BEM, the wires running to the doors will be connected to the blue and green wires, which will then run to the slaves via the factory wiring locations (under the floor/dash etc).
Green <- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - > Yellow with Black Stripe
Blue <- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - > Red with Yellow Stripe
The next step is to go to each door, cut off the old door lock connector, and grab the ends of the blue / green cables (with the connectors) so you can wire them into the door, the simply plug them into your new locks.
Now all the tricky fiddly wiring is done, you can start putting in the new motors, take careful note of the way the door locks operate, the frontâ€™s are ok, but the backâ€™s rotate more and donâ€™t move up/down as far (you will understand when you get the doors off)
Note the front doors wonâ€™t lock when they are open.
The best way to connect the motors is to first attach the motor to its bracket, then attach the motor to the door lock wire and mark out roughly where you need to drill, the good thing is the brackets are flexible and can be adjusted if they are too high or low, the motors donâ€™t need to go fully up or down, they will simply push as hard as they can in the given direction, as long as they arenâ€™t at the top or bottom of their travel.
Once you have drilled your holes and attached the motors, plug them in and check they work the locks properly (ie the locks go all the way up and down). On a couple of doors I found using some washers to position the locks closer to the middle of the door where required as the motor was pushing the lock on an angle.
