Power Lock conversion!

I was wondering if it is possible to convert my manual locks to power locks. Also, How much would it cost to get it professionally done? Thanx!!

for remote entry or including interior controls as well? cuz you can get a keyless entry for like 25-30 and lock actuators for 15, but if you want to control them from the inside with a push button i would guess kits start around 100 or so

THere is another thread i was looking at that talks about this. All the hardware might be inside your door panel. They said all the wiring is. I am actually going to try to do this too over the summer.

correct. all you need is the interior parts such as the door panels, and the buttons and the lock and window motor, and the window arms(i believe they are different for the manual window vs the power window). you could pull them easy off a parts truck.

Most car audio places will be able to do it for you. All you need is actuators and relays. Some of the wiring may get a little harry but it can be done, I know because I did it when I installed my alarm. I have an XLT and it came with no power anything, including under the hood :P

Getting ready to do this myself. Most of the car places I've checked charge $50 per actuator, which is ridiculous. Look for a kit on ebay. Something like this will work:
