View Full Version : Remote Door Locks

I just went and bought a kit to put in remote door locks. There is a wiring harness with a whole lot of wires coming out of it. Are these wires supposed to hook up to the wires in the dash that I just hooked my radio to? Sorry if this is an obvious question, I'm just trying to learn all of this stuff!

Nope, nothing would be that easy. I would hope there are some instructions that go with the kit to help you figure out how many of those wires you are going to have to use. The '99 Grand Am has door lock relays in the Left Hand IP Electrical Center under the control of the body computer under the glovebox. You would likely tie into those wires somewhere. Your vehicle doesn't have separate control of the driver door lock motor, I don't know if the kit does that function like the OEM system.

I am sure someone else has installed a similar kit who would have experience in installing (maybe you should have mentioned brand or model number of the kit)?
