Hi

Hoping for some guidance please! my remote lockoing has packed in (never worked since ive had it). The central locking is fine off the key, just the remote does nothing. Ive tried the usual reset procedure, and change the transponder box behind the clocks. no joy.

So i think the best solution is just to add a separate remote receiver fob. These seem to be readily available on ebay. However, as they are universal kits, Im not sure how hard the wiring is likely to be?

Has anybody any experience of fitting aftermarket remote locking to a t4 with central locking (ie, just needs the electrics, the mechanics are there and functioning off the key in the door)?

thanks

I fitted what was called a 'Remoter' some time ago to a MK3 Golf.
This used to be sold by C&R Enterprises in Nottingham.
Don't know if they still exist?
Fitting was a breeze as it was all plug and play and went into the connector in the driver's door.

Have you checked you have power and a "earth" connection to the box?
Also the wiring in the drivers door bellow?

Hi - the box just has a harness that plugs straight in - and im a bit clueless as to which wires in that provide what! The wires in the door bellow seem all intact

Have you tried a new remote fob? I got one from a different VW vehicle, sync'd it as per the manual and I was back in business. I'll try and find the thread.

Mine was the flip key kind.

I don't know if the electronics are compatible between the two key fob types.

Are you sure it's not just the battery in the fob itself?

When I say key fob all I mean is the remote control buttons, not the actual key itself.

From your OP, I gather that you can lock the van using the key in the lock, and all doors lock and unlock, just not off of the push buttons (key fob).

If the receiver (behind the dash clocks) had the same part number as mine then I don't see why you can't change to a flip style key and fob.
