Following up the previous blog post, I wanted to post a couple of pictures of a recent keyless entry installation.
This particular vehicle did not have power locks, so door actuators has to be installed. Below is a picture of the actuator installed on the passenger side door:
Once the actuators were installed, I moved on to the keyless entry system. Here is a picture of the keyless entry installed:
Being a keyless entry system, visibility of the system is not as important as it is with an alarm system. Typically, alarm systems are installed in a location which is not easily visible or located. You may also notice that the wiring closely matches most all of the factory wiring. Again, this is not as important with keyless entry systems, but this is paramount with alarm systems so a thief cannot easily locate the alarm wiring and disable the alarm system. However, for consistency and quality reasons, this process is done with all alarms, keyless entry, and remote start systems.
