Good Day Guys forum members and Experts.
I'm Darren From South Africa. I really need some help / advise as to install a Remote Central locking KIT, I have Ford Fiesta 1.4 Duratec 2004 with key central locking. the locks on driver and passenger are damaged and have to gain access via the dam boot every day.
I bought a basic central locking with remote KIT and was trying to install it today but that failed Horribly and ended up popping a few fuses on the Control box.
I had the Red wire connected on a Constant 12v supply from the GEM wire and Black earth wire to the Steering Colum bolt tested the earth with a multi metre. there are 5 wires on the Harness that got to the Master Solenoid- White, Brown, Green, Blue and Black Earth. I want to use the existing solenoids already factory fitted. There are to other wires a white and a brown that were not part of the solenoid wires that get 12v when the Unlock and Lock buttons are pressed on the Remotes. I connected those to the Blue and Blue/Red wire on the GEM first plug Dark Grey. there is a thin Green/Black wire in the Grey GEM plug which is UNLOCK I connected the Blue wire and then connected the Green wire to the Orange/black wire in the Second Plug of the GEM for LOCK. The Indicators work when I press the remote lock/Unlock perfect and easy... Now I can hear the doors lock and unlock but it keeps blowing the fuse on the Control box the other White and Brown wire that goes to the Master Solenoid seems to have a 4.5v on both wires constantly
I hope this kinda explains my problem a little I am not sure what to do now. the Blue and Green wire I connected for to the GEM both also get a 12v kick when I press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the Remote same as the White and Brown I connected to the indicators...
Please if anyone can assist me or advise I'm lost now and not sure what to do
Thanks Guys much appreciated
