Remote Central Locking - Fiesta Studio 2015

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have recently brought a 2015 Ford Fiesta Studio (the only model without Remote Locking as standard🙄).

I've seen you can buy kits off eBay to turn standard central locking into remote locking. 

Just seeing if anyone knows if this is possible to do with this model?

There is another thread here from a few years back regarding the same topic, but to no avail:

I've approached a company near me who say they can do this (www.automotive-control.co.uk) but have been quoted £300 including the kit and x2 keys. The kits are only £20-£40 online so seems a bit steep - assuming it must be a pain in the ***** to install hence the price?

Would rather not pay £300 for this but it's driving me crazy not having remote locking on a new(ish) car. Had a 2003 Fiesta before this one and even that had remote locking!

Any input appreciated 😀

Well, I gotta ask - if that was a killer function for you, why didn't you walk away? My 'killer' is A/C, wouldn't consider a car that didn't have a working system no matter how cheap 🤣

Whilst not a helpful comment, my killer feature is quick clear windscreen . I don’t suppose the studio model has that either. I don’t think I’d be too bothered if I didn’t have remote locking.

Studio models come with a drivers seat and steering wheel as standard, but Ford are looking to do away with one of those unnecessary extras 🤣

Reminds me of the Escort mk2 "Popular" came with a rubber floor

Cheapskate owners - they should have paid the extra to buy a Popular Plus IIRC

Mk1 Fiesta popular didn’t even have a heated rear window. Can’t recall if mk2 did. None of this helps saint1.

My first car was a 306 in Miami spec...

Manual locks, manual windows, manual mirrors, didn't even have a rev counter...  So, what made it the Miami trim?  An electronically operated sunroof!!  :laugh:

Didn't seem that important at the time, just needed a car!

Well, what else did you expect? :laugh: 

Seriously though, I looked at doing it on the 306 with a kit from Maplins, presumably similar to the one you're looking at, and decided it was far too much hassle to bother with.  I just sold it and bought a better specced one a few months later instead.

Ah good old Maplins. It does seem like a lot of bother for something so simple. Will get a better specced one eventually but going to have to suck it up with this one for now.
