I have a 06 patrol ute but obviously modern things such as central locking for the 2 doors wasnt included on the DX?! :rolleyes: Has anyone fitted an aftermarket central locking kit that they would reccomend as there are so many on the market, that I could hook into my remote immobilsor? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers...

Does the dx have passenger door solenoid? i.e the passenger door unlocks from the drivers door lock?
I fitted a keyless set up to my 03 ST ute which involved fitting genuine door latch/solenoid assy to drivers door from a wagon, running two wires for the lock/ unlock solenoid to under the centre of the dash (just behind the lighter socket is the control module for the passenger door on the ST) and activating it by an alarm kit through the lock and unlock negative trigger feeds that come from the drivers door window control panel and go to the module. Most off the shelf alarm kits have the functions to operate central locking. They just need to be wired to suit which is in the diagrams supplied.

Hi Sparky, No alas there is no solenoids at all for the locking, just the door key barrel ! so it would be a complete new install including solenoids, control box etc.... I guess i was wondering more about the mechanical link up from the available kits to the existing manual locking mechanism.

As the keyless immobilisor/ alarm was already installed , i dont have a wiring diagram for it, was wondering if the negative trigger isnt apparantly obvious, wether i can link main drivers door solenoid to say the relay out which activates the indicator flash, (maybe with a diode to prevent the door locks activating evrytime the indicators are used normally?)

A lot of alarms have an output driver for the central locking. Have a sniff around with a 12V test light and see if you can find a wire out the back of the alarm that gives a flash as the alarm is activated or de-activated. I can't help with the mechanical interface, but on my old Mav it was easy to couple up the locking motor to the rod coming down from the lock push button. In contrast to the factory unit, I mounted mine as high as possible to reduce damage in river crossings.

Cheers mate, will check with a metre on the output for a stray wire or connection point.
My other concern was as the locks are not the push down type but the ones that flip out near the door handle how well the solenoid would pull / or push the attaching rod to these, but i guess a bit of trial and error , or by getting some off a patrol wagon or something may get results.

Cheers guys, checked that link 'gu central locking' relates to the ST which has some bits alreay fitted but the DX is a little more basic, may speak with Bryan from BDS as u recomend him and see what he says. how hard can it be... hahahaha....

Saw some cheap kits for locking actuators with control gear from Jaycar (@$60) which would have to be cheaper than proper nissan ones, even from the wreckers. c how we go...

If you are pretty handy with a test light as tb5 bruce suggested the immobiliser kit should have the functions to operate the central locking. If this is the case then all you will need is two solenoids and two 12v changeover relays. Find the two pulse feeds from the alarm module and connect like shown in the diagram. Also note if the trigger outputs are positive then connect pin 85 of the relay to ground and 86 to the trigger output (most are negative though) Also fuse the b+ feeds to your 87 pins. From memory after market solenoids draw 5amps per solenoid. So for a ute 15A would be fine.

You can always pick up a central locking module and 2 actuators (1 master, 1 slave) from Jaycar. You can pick up modules purely for a trigger if need be (not remote) which could integrate with your current immoboliser.

I picked up a remote immoboliser kit from Jaycar, as my ST wagon already had central locking activated from the drivers door lock. I used the CL module already installed and found the trigger wire. Then I just found the wires heading to the other door actuators and ran a wire to a new slave one in the door.

Works a treat.

Hi Jethro,
I have the same ute and immobilser made by Dynamco. I'm sure there is a trigger that can be used to activate solinoids.
I'll keep watch because I would like to do this too.
