Aftermarket Keyless Entry System

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I am new here and really need some help. I have a 2007 Corolla CE. It is not equipped with a keyless entry system but it has power locks. I bought an

 

aftermarket keyless entry system, named "MILANO" . It looks like all the other aftermarket keyless entry system. It has a 14 pin connector and a unit sensor.

 

The problem is I don't know how to install it on my car. Can any one help me on this? Steps with pictures would be great. Thx.

Never heard of that particular brand. I'm assuming that a wiring diagram came with it - if not, that would be the first thing I'd find. Most of these universal keyless entry units are not designed to be plug and play - you'll have to wire this by hand.

 

Having a multimeter will also come in very handy - as you'll have to probe individual wires, as sometimes the wiring color scheme can vary, depending on manufacturing date and location. I believe the factory harness is a 10-pin or 12-pin connector, though I can't remember for sure. Once you have the keyless systems wiring scheme in hand - then we'll be able to point to you possible connection points.

Indeed it came with a wiring diagram.You are right it is a 10 pin connector. It is not hard for me to read through this diagram but the problem is I don't know I I should start with my car, like where I can find corresponding lines on my car. Is it behind my car's glove box or it is under steering wheel?

 

btw, how can I upload or attach some pictures? Only thing I can find is through a link. But not sure how to attach pictures through a link.

Easiest way is to upload your pics to a photosharing site - like Photobucket or Flickr - then post the link here.

 

Most of the wiring you'll need to address is on the driver's side kick panel, but depending on what the kit needs installed - you might also need to access the connectors that are in the upper left corner of the cowl and behind the glove box. Also, need to find out if your car is TMC or NUMMI made - that can be found from the VIN. TMC, VIN starts with "2T", for NUMMI, VIN starts with "1N". Sometimes there are differences in the color coding of the wiring harness.

 

Can be tricky to install - you need power applied to test probe the wiring, while being careful not to short anything out. During installation is usually easier, as it is best to pull power completely.

 

Possible that there is wiring guide online, might be able to get the factory wiring instructions from the dealership - just ask, they may be able to just print one out. I'll also take a peek at my OEM setup and see what wires you'll need the tap.

My car's VIN starts with "1N". I uploaded what I bought and its wiring diagram. It can be seen through the link. I tried to install today but it turned out too many taped wires there. I can't decide which to start with.

I successfully installed it and it worked! But the lock and unlock button on front doors are not working since then. Do you know why this is happening? When I wire ground I simply put wires on the body frame. Is it the cause? Thx
