    Who has done it and how hard was it? I don't know that I can live without it. And any suggestions on which one?

    i have it on mine. but it was not done by me. previous owner installed an alarm with it. i busted one of the remotes too, so now i am down to one. i need to get a replacement. just not sure which model i have and if it will matter which remote i get. i have a viper one and then some unknown. anyways it looks like it was all integrated with the alarm. im sure it isnt too hard.

    I have it on the celica, and installed it on my previous car, simply integrating it into the alarm. Very simple, you would just have to find out the trigger wires for the locking and wire them to the alarm. Its nice walking up to my car and unlocking it ith the remote! Mine had it done when i bought it, along with also when it unlocks all the interior lights come on. Is that factory in these cars though? You can do this with your alarm too

    anyone know how to reprogram the key fobs? i need to get a new one off ebay and reprogram so it works.
  9. I'd like to do this on my GT-S but I think there is a problem with the automatic locking system. It will only unlock both doors and will not lock both. So i have to reach through and lock the passengers door when i get out. When i put the key in and turn it. It will only lock my door. Whereas, when I want to unlock, it will ONLY unlock BOTH doors, not just one. I have no idea how to fix this but it would be nice too so I can get an alarm and keyless entry. I thought it would be a good idea with the new paint job and rims coming soon...

    Any thoughts?

    nah dont think its factory, i installed an alarm/immobiliser/keyless entry kit on my car and done a cuple of my friends you can get some that have a lot of features like mine had it so interior light stayed on for 10 second after you unlocked it bonnet lift sensor boot sensor shock sensor remote start it is worth it to pay a bit extra plus its pretty cool when u wire it up to your your blinkers and they flash when you press the button! amazing. pretty straight forward if u can read a wiring diagram which is pretty easy it should come with the kit.

    i think you need to re align your lock mechanism
    -remove your door trims first look for the obvious
    -then look for the solenoid that pulls on the metal rod that leads to your door lock.
    -there will be a screw on it that you can detach the solenoid from the rod with. unscrew it.
    -find out which way the solenoid goes when the doors are unlocked.(when you press unlock button)
    -pull/push the solenoid right in/out it in so it is in the unlocked position
    -also switch your door lock to unlocked position and re attach the solenoid to the metal rod

    I'm also currently working on installing an alarm/keyless entry but your wiring guide link doesn't work. Do you still have schmoot?

    I've been looking at alarms systems as well, since I always have passengers in the car. I'd always have to walk around and unlock their door or unlock mine first and reach over to unlock the door. It'd be nice to have a keyless entry, especially when it is dark out and you can't find the keyhole and there goes your shiny paint. I'd be interested in the diagram as well

    have a clifford one from 1994. works like a charm, except the siren is now fried. back then my celi only had manual locks, so when i installed power locks on mine, i used the power lock button's wires to trigger lock/unlocks, just had to look for my alarm unit's wiring diagram to find the right colour wire to twist together.

    clifford is 100% lifetime warrenty.......take it to the place where your p/o had it installed and they will replace it for free.....then tell them your locks stopped working.....lol

    No need of an alarm, except if you want your car to electrically breakdown one day or another.
    And you all know that no one pays attention to a screaming car... :roll

    I only have a remote power lock/unlock with blinkers flashing light and siren.
    One flash/beep when locking.
    Two flashes/beeps when opening.
    Ten flashes/beeps function to locate the car on a park lot (not very useful as I'm the only one to own a st162 around here) :mrgreen
    Easy to install. Negative switching. Flashing led when locked.
    Cheap : 30 euros with two remote control units and including the siren and domestic shipping.
    Available : an additional module to automatically roll up or down the windows when closing or opening the locks (I have one but not installed yet).
