You can do some research on this. Go online and see what the best keyless entry systems are to install in your vehicle. You can also ask your car dealer what system is compatible with the car that you have so that you can purchase the correct system.
- Purchase the remote keyless entry system. When you know what type of keyless entry system you need, you can purchase it. You can do this online, or you can also go to auto shops to see if they sell the type of system that you need. If you purchase online, you can look for discounted systems so that you can save some money. Remember to purchase a remote keyless entry system with two actuators if your car has two doors, and four actuators if your car has four doors.
- Preparation. Before starting the installation, you have to ensure that the windows of your car are all rolled up. Look at how the window panel on the car door is installed and see how you can remove it without damaging the car door.
- Installation. Remove the panel inside the car door and look for the lock. What you have to do is to get the clip from the remote keyless entry system and attach it to the bar of the lock. Get an actuator and use the bar that came with the kit, and put it through the hole on the actuator. The next step is to put the bars in the actuator to connect it to the locking bar. The last step is securing the actuator using the screws that came with the kit. After this, you can replace the panel and test if the mechanism works.
