Dashboard door lock switch installation
« on: October 01, 2017, 05:37:54 PM »
Hello everybody

I'm removing door lock switchs from door panels (because i replace old panels by new ones) and i'm installing a door lock switch on the dashboard (at the side of the rear defrost switch).
Does anybody knows how wire this new switch? I've tryed to do this but it's a real headache, cause i'm a newbie.
I've also noticed that power lock doesn't works if one door lock switchs are removed...
My car settings : 79 T/A, rear defrost, no ac, power windows, power lock

Hope somebody knows this trick.
Thank you for your help ! =)


PS : sorry for my english

Sadly, i've fucked up something  when trying to wire my dashboard switch.
Now, switchs on doors just unlock doors. Electric locking doesn't work anymore... =(

Somebody would have any idea about what i've broken, please?

Very helpful, thanks! :D
According this, it appears that i can't hijack the actual wiring with my 3 pins switch.
I'll remade all the wiring, using 2 relays.

I'll post here diagram and photos of my work soon. :)
