Remote central locking

My bravo atm has got central locking. im guessing that if i get an alarm it shudnt cost much more to have it connected to the locking system to make it remote as all the motors and everything are there already.

am i correct in thinking this or am i guna have to fork out loads more for an extra kit todo it?

Cheers
Adam

Yeah, it would work like that. In the Brio catalogue you can either just get a remote locking addon that costs 70
They have a meta alarm system that does this as well 155 for the one that will work on the brava/o
Also a thatcham rated one at 176

hope that helps

the majority of alarms have a central locking interface not just the Fiat supplied ones

Re: Remote central locking

wouldn't those wires be connected to one of the front lock motors? there's no real central locking switch, only the lock pin

Re: Remote central locking

i have the same problem...i have a 2 month old punto but fitted an alarm in myself it cost me 76 brand new and came with the central locking thingy built in and it will autolock etc but the 2 wires that i connected to the central locking worked ok but the wires got a bit hot so i disconected them...so i need to know where the 2 pulse wires go to..the ones i used were coming from the drivers door and are very thin all was ok but i could not lock the whole car from inside from the drivers door and the fiat dealer said my car has a "body computer " in it...so whatever that is. but the car all locked for the remote fob but the wires got a bit hot.so if you solved the problem please let me knoe the colours of the wires and there location.....thanks in advance....ps...the car alarm i bought from e bay is called a cheetah....complete with micro window protectors and very bright blue/red led's..nice alarm..but the dam wires to the c/l....

Re: Remote central locking

I'd get an auto electrician to do it. you could burn out the wiring
