Hi, I'm after fitting an aftermarket RCL to my girlfriends Fiesta. It has central locking at the moment but the drivers door doesn't work with it (suspect it's the solenoid on that side). Would fitting an aftermarket remote system fix the drivers door issue? Am I best getting this type http://www.ebay.co.u...2#ht_500wt_1361 or this one http://www.ebay.co.u...#ht_1855wt_1111


Thanks.

Hi I have the same problem on my mk6 fiesta the drivers door will not unlock with the key so I have to keep going to the passenger side to unlock it I have just brought a hawk remote central locking system on eBay and am in the process of trying to fit it did this fix the drivers door issue? And any tips for fitting as the manual I have it looks like a nightmare!
Thanks rich

Bump ... Any help on this? Got it all fitted its gets power and I get the indicators going when I push the buttons on the remote So I know I got the 12v + the indicator and ground wires right. but the doors don't lock or unlock I know it's negative locking and I tapped into the black/orange wire in the green plug for locking and The black/green wire in the grey plug for unlocking and the blue wire for the ground, but nothing still I've also Reyes grounding it on the chassis but still nothing any help would be great

On the gem unit the lock / unlock wires are the black/orange wire going into the green plug on the gem and the black/green thin wire in the grey plug on the gem (the same grey plug as the 2 blue / blue red indicator wires) this is what I got told from the people I purchased the system from and I have checked and I think they are right but I'm still not getting the doors to lock or unlock!! Ahahh you need to test the voltage on the 2 wires I have said above one should show 12v when the doors are locked and then show nothing when the door is unlocked and the other do the opposite I have tested these wires and hooked the system up to them but its still not working but from testing them its pretty safe to say these are the lock and unlock wires

did they tell you if it was negative or positive trigger? basically it is a relay i have connected both n/o contacts to ground and then the commons go to the locking and unlocking wire that is if it is negative switched. i could just do with the wiring diagram of the car and i could work it out myself but there is nothing i have looked for hours.

Easiest way is someone with a haynes manual I can take you a pick of the mk7 diagram for the central locking cant imagine they are much different if it helps

Yea it is definatly negative if you look at the top of the gem all the wires are in little bundles going into 5 separate plugs at the top of the gem and the plugs are different colours there should only be 1 black and orange wire going into the green plug (thats the lock wire) and 1 thinner black and green wire going to the grey plug (the first plug) thats the unlock wirehope this helps! Pretty sure mine is sorted now just got to tidy it all up tomorrow

Also where did you take the 12v power supply from because I read on another forum that that made a difference I took it from 1 of the 3 thick red wires under the dash I just picked one and snipped
