Wiring aftermarket power doors to stock door switches

Ok this is like the 4th thread i've started about these power door locks so bear with me lol. I have aquired a set of stock power door bezels and am going to wire up the switches to activate the acutators. I have this diagram but don't really understand the top part. I think the (LCK) and (ULK) boxes are relays but which wires go to which parts of the relays? Also when it says that the NO goes to the PS2, what the heck does that mean? My actuators only have 2 wires, the Blue and Green that already have wires running to them. The only thing I really need to know is which wires go to which ports on the relay and what the NO going to the PS2 means. Thanks for all your help guys. I'm going to do a thorough walk thru of installing aftermarket power door locks with keyless entry once I'm done.

This diagram was designed for dual pulse system (unlocking passengers door separately from drivers) but should help. Just delete the bottom relay and reroute the blue wire coming off the passengers actuator and splice it into the blue wire connected to the drivers actuator for your setup.

Awesome, you've been a ton of help tonight. What amp rating relays should I use for this? Will 30A be too much/ too little?

Any 12V SPDT relay rated at 10 amps or more will work. You can also add a manual switch with a center off DPDT rocker switch as shown at the top of that diagram to control the actuators.

I have the stock power door lock switch that I just got in today, so I'll use that to control the actuators.

NC = Normally Closed (term 87a)
COM = Common (term 30)
NO = Normally Open (term 87)
C1 = coil term 1 (term 86)
C2 = coil term 2 (term 85)
PS1/2 = Power Supply 1 or 2
