haynes manual.

 

BUT

 

why on earth are you using the ford OEM stuff? its over complicated and often tempremental after being removed from another vehicle.

 

bin the OEM stuff and buy a much more simplified, attracive, practical and reliable aftermarket job :thumb:

i sadly dont like the aftermarket stuff cutting the outer cable and putting a 2 wire soloide i did one on a ka and they are rubbish

is there anything on here that could help me ?

 

 

then you installed it wrong fella.

 

i ONLY use aftermarket CL kits on my cars and theyve never let me down or failed aswell as bing 100x more usable than the IR ford versions that have awful range and limited reception angle.

 

another unfortunate side effect of ford CL OEM system is its prone to alarm confusion if the drivers door isnt used to lock the car at all times, resulting in the alarm going nuts even if you start the car. :rolleyes:
