I'm tired of using the key in my Ranger. Call me lazy I guess but every car we have other than my ranger has a remote fob for doors/remote start.
I've wired many things in my truck so I don't forsee this being a huge issue however I have a question.
I just bought a Avital 2101L which is only $35 to get the control unit/two remotes. I already have two wire door actuators that I found from my days at working at Best Buy(10+ years ago) so total cost for this project is only $35 plus time.
Below is the user manual: Page 4 has wiring pinout. H1/2 Blue -200Ma second unlock output is what interests me.
I have one question about a progressive feature meaning, when I push the unlock button, it unlocks the driver side door, and when I do a second push of the button it will unlock the passenger side door. Since it's mainly me in this thing, I would rather have that be the default rather than both unlock/lock at the same time.
I know most likely I will need a relay and I am probably making this much more difficult than what it needs to be, when it should actually be a lot easier.
IE: I have NO factory lock/power wiring. So I should be able to simply run 12v constant/switched to the control box Avita 2101. Then I will run the outputs to the door actuators which are simply 2 wires. I do not plan on having unlock/lock push switches in the truck, I will simply use the remote fob to keep it extremely simple...
Looking for some input on anyone that has done this. I really just want to know how to do the progressive unlock/unlock feature but unsure about how to set that up via a relay.
I do not want to go OEM, as that is going to be way more expensive because I need actuators (which I already have, not OEM), new door panels, new wiring connectors...etc. For $35 this is by far the most economical way of adding power locks to my truck. I already have all necessary wiring/relays/connectors to make it all work. Just unsure on specific wiring.
