i will try to explain this best i can, hopefully it makes sense....

basically i have got as far as taking the door panel off and hooking the alarm up to the drivers side door lock actuator - ONLY the one door. RESULT door unlocks and locks when i arm and disarm the alarm.

All good i thought, but when i try and connect the output for the door lock from the alarm to the locking system in my car nothing happens!!!!

now this is my problem. i have a 91 model EB so as far as i no it doesnt have smart lock or any central locking control unit as such. and if it does i cant find it!!!!

if any one could tell me if i need some sort of relay or if i need 2 do something other than wat i have tried.

and for all those wanting to no it is a VIPER 791XV it has all the good stuff - immobilizer, turbo timer, shock sensor, remote start etc. etc. picked it up from autobarn in ferntree gully VIC 4 $550 on special (un installed of course).

Does your EB have the dash mounted lock/unlock button?

Can you also supply a pic of your instruction manual for the central locking relays?

The BEM controls the central locking btw, and it should be easy to set up once we have the info. (Unless it was second hand and has no manual!)

no my car doesnt have the dash mounted lock/unlock button

and all the manual says is basically - BLUE + unlock - lock
GREEN - Unlock + lock

BUT it seems its not as easy as that...

there are no wiring diagrams nor is there any blog in the manual saying where and how these wires should be connected - which i think is really weird considering that everything else has detailed wiring schematics!!!

i read somewhere that apparently i need 2x12v relays or something like that because the alarm doesnt send the pulse 4 long enough, but i can change the pulse time 2 3.8seconds and it still didnt make a difference.
