Hey crew,

For a couple of days now my factory door lock actuators on my EL have not been locking. Even when they do decide to lock, i can go back out to my car after a few hours and find that it has unlocked itself!! You can now probably imagine my frustration.

I am now turning to the actuator replacement documentation here on FordMods, but am having a great deal of difficulty understanding how to incorporate the aftermarket central locking kit i bought, to the factory locking system and BEM. I understand how to mount all the actuators, that's simple-as, but i'll be buggered if i can understand how to wire it all in to the factory wiring.

As was mentioned in the FM documentation, the factory actuator wiring can be used, but i'm going to bypass that and just use the kit wiring that has been supplied and run it right through the car.

Can anyone please help a desperate fellow FordModder by explaining in simple terms on how to complete this conversion?

I think after wiring the first door, you may decide you took the harder option.

:oops:

Snap, you were going to be the next person i asked about this haha, but after reading those threads.....i still don't understand how, or which wires are needed to be spliced/cut or if i run the kit wiring to all the doors etc etc. Yes, yes, i heard everyone sigh and groan! :roll: Haha.

If i supply a diagram of the actuator kit, would you or anyone be able to edit it to show me which wires to splice/cut and join?

I have no trouble wiring in an LTD instrument cluster and taking half the car apart to wire in door sensors plus wiring in a whle stereo system, but this actuator conversion has got me baffled! It really must be simple if i don't understand it haha :oops:

Cut the door lock/unlock wires, from memory, brown and white go to the wires going TO the bem, and blue and green go to the wires going AWAY from the bem. then u just have to run the extra wire for the master door.....
