Door Lock Question, Can't Figure This Out!

Ok, when I purchased my truck, it came with manual door locks. I have since bought a keyless entry kit off Ebay and installed it (about a year ago). The kit consisted of a keyless entry module/box, two door lock actuators and two keyless entry keychains. Since I swapped my manual windows to power and used the factory door bezel and switches, I still have the factory door lock switches in the bezel as well. Is there any way to wire it up so that I can press the lock/unlock button and it will trigger the actuators? By the way, the actuators are two wire. [email protected]!

I did exactly this. I did use two relays to avoid the risk of a short circuit in case someone decided to go against what the lock controller was doing (I think that was the scenario. I just remember a +12V to ground direct connection was possible, hence the relays).

Hope this helps... it's the actual pseudo-schematic I used to wire up my locks. (And yes, I realize some of my wires change color between A + B. I was short on wire at the time).

What are the wires on the back of the switches? How many are there? I know Bob has a schematic!

Well I can't rightly recall to be honest. I just used a multimeter with a continuity detector to figure out what was what.

This is the basic setup for aftermarket P/D that will act like the factory setup. I replaced the module with the relays and tied it into the alarm system remotes.

Key Remote Ops: First unlock pulse opens drivers door, second one unlocks both doors.

Door Switch: The door switch will either lock or unlock both doors. You should be able to configure the factory switch's to work with this setup. Its all just a matter of grounds. Hope this helps.
