DIY: Remote Electronic Locks for $25

First the kit: It is called Omega REC-43T Keyless Entry System, and you can get it off ebay. I got it from a guy called tintnelectronics. Good guy, shipped quick.

Basically this a radio frequency programable clicker. You can use this to open your car, your garage, trigger any electronically controlled device. There is nothing that makes this kit "car" specific.

First impression - Chinese quality box, but the clickers and the box feel solid. Seem to made pretty well, only time will tell. The provided instruction are good, in grammatically correct English, and all in all provide us with a good idea of how to start. Having a voltmeter helps, or you can just fallow my wire guide.

1. Remove the trunk lining between tail lights
(I dont have it in anyway so I didnt show how to do this)
These are the wires we are looking for.
Image

2. Disconnect your battery - we will be dealing with hot wires - since the system continuously draws power - so disconnect at the source.

3. The kit comes with two bundles - here is what the basic wires will look like

4Wire bundle
OMEGA wire Color ----Car functions----Car wire color
Red ------------------+12V------------Red (antenna wire)
Black ----------------Ground-----------brown (bunch at trunk lock)
Green ------------Output 3-----------not used
Blue --------------output 4------------not used

2 Wire bundle
Green -----------Lock-------------Green and black stripe
Blue--------------unlock----------green with purple stripe

4.Our hot wire for constant 12V
Image

5.bundle that runs to trunk lock
Image

6.double sided tape on back of main box for attachment
Image

7.soldering in power wire
Image

8.box mounted
Image

9.ground wire soldered in
Image

10.all wires soldered in
Image

11.and clean it up
Image

12. Reconnect your battery - or else nothing will work.

Optional: The stock antenna is pretty short and since I cut off the extra lengths of wire anyways as I was installing it I decided to use them to extend th antenna. I then rn it around the edge of the trunk and up underneath the speaker tray area - range is good.

NOTE: to get no delay you need to turn the delay dial on teh board all the way counter clockwise and then click channels 1 and 2 down to the (-) notch. That smoothed out operation a lot for me.

I dont have an e36, and I dont have any friends with one, but I see no reason why this could not be made to work. If you have power locks all you really need is to figure out which wire is which (unlock and lock) and do it the exact same way. All the device does is connect +12V to the "lock" or "unlock" wire when you press a button.

Not only do I have to do this to my car now (or a full alarm with keyless entry and all), but now I know which wire is which so I can hopefully troubleshoot my recent lock issue. Couldn't find the wiring diagram for the locks in Mitchell On Demand.

Not sure what Mitchell on Demand is, but I hope this helped.

It's a computer program that's supposed to have full wiring diagrams and MUCH more info for just about every car ever produced. I was able to use a copy to look up my car, and printed out everything I could, but I didn't see power locks listed.

Not sure where you get it, but a lot of auto repair shops have it. I think you have to pay a subscription for access to it like AllData.
