Installing Power door locks & Keyless entry
in a Chevy Silverado pickup truck.
Wiring & Cleanup
The parking lights on late model Chevy trucks are wired through a relay in the engine compartment, making adding light flash to the keyless entry a little more difficult than on other models. Usually we can find our parking light wire near the light switch or in the kick panel area. On these trucks the wire in the vehicle needs a low level ground signal to trip the relay. Since our keyless entry has a high power positive output for the lights, we found it easier to extend and run the wire out to the left front parking light. One clip rod holds the light in it's frame. Once the headlight assembly is pulled forward, our light wire is connected to the parking light wire behind the headlight assembly. This wire is typically brown on GM vehicles.
With all the wiring completed, the door locks and keyless entry are checked for proper function. The door panels, under dash panels and kick panels are replaced and the truck is cleaned up.
