Power locks?

Excellent pics and info. Nice job!

I'm kind of surprised that anyone would bother to do this to a TJ, though.

I agree, there are only 2 doors and who locks their TJ. Espically when you run a soft top. It only gives them a reason to cut your top or windows. Just don't leave anything in it anyone wants.

I have a hard top and always lock the doors out of habit.
I also lock my keys in the car all the time lol worst habit ever. I'm gonna install these actuators with a hidden unlock button outside the jeep like on xxx so I don't lock my keys in the car any more.

what.

TLATEOTW, I see from you photo that you used a factory remote ( I assume for a keyless entry system you added with your power locks). How did you do this? Did you just program the a factory remote to work with your aftermarket keyless entry?

I'm adding power door locks and a keyless entry from Electric-Life and don't like the remotes that come with the kit. I'd like it to look factory as possible.

Thanks for the help.

Either way, looks good. Great Job.

Where did you get the remote from? How did you get it to work with your keyless?

Thanks for the help.

So I have gotten a few questions lately on my install. I still have had no problems with it at all. The only thing that I added to it was a hidden switch for the rear tailgate so it can be secure even when the top is down and the doors are off. This way you can't just hit the center console button and unlock the tailgate and take my tools and subs.

I did this mod so I can lock my vehicle as it has a hard top for more than half the year and I do not want to fumble with keys when it is pouring rain. I just click the remote and it is open.

this is a great mod! I'm going to research more into this and try to do it on my '05 unlimited. Seems a little daunting so I may be contacting you.
Beats getting quoted $250 per door... -_-

I know this thread is a bit old but just picked up a 2013 jku before end of year and wanted to add the power locks. I went to the mes site and it looks like the AVI-2101 is the kit we need (for 4 door). I do not want the alarm. I also see the surface mount switch as an option. Can you confirm this is correct? Also the link to the bohemian biker blog does not work but through search found that it links its store to Solar Capitalist LLC. Can you also confirm part# for the sae 2pin disconnect.
Thanks

I like the surface mount switch and would recommend it. That site is also run by the biker guy. Tell him what you are doing and he will point you in the right direction.

Ok, picked up the MES kit and the 2 pin disconnects for the rear doors of my JKU but needed to get minimum 5 pin for the front doors as there are five wires.

2 questions:

1. I need to buy some butt splices to accommodate the wire from the actuator to the quick disconnect that I will leave in the door right at the exit. What is wire size of actuators. Eyeballing it looks like 18awg. (I just ordered so I do not have them in hand to check)

2. I assume you use the actuator and the wire supplied to get to the edge of the door where you splice the SAE2pin. On the other side you will have to splice again to the wiring before terminating at the controller, Yes?

Thanks

I was planning on running a power wire for the controller to an Add-a-fuse through the hole in the passenger dash wall. How did you get constant power for your mod?

Hey I'm new to this forum so I don't know if I'm doing this right, I've been really interested in keyless entry for my 01 tj and every post I've seen keeps going back to your thread (witch is great by the way !). Except I need help on which one you ordered. Can you give me the link for the product page witch you got because I don't want to order the wrong one. Also dose the remote have 2 separate buttons for locking and unlocking? Thanks

Basic keyless entry system based on the Avital 2101L with two wire actuators:

Unswitched power:
Red
Violet/Violet-Black (These wires are joined out of the box)

Ground:
White/Black
Brown/Black
Black

To Actuator:
Green/Black

To other Actuator Wire:
Blue/Black

Reverse actuator wires as needed to get the function correct. On mine the Blue/Black went with the Blue wire for the actuator, your mileage may vary.

Things I'd like the system to do but ran out of time and patience:
• I'd like to progressive unlock to work - where the first press unlocks the driver's door and the second press unlocks the passenger door. (no idea how to do this)
• I'd like the horn to honk when the door's lock.
• I'd like the lights to flash when the doors lock and when they unlock.

Hope this helps, any input would be welcome!

Cheers!

I bought this kit. But only used two of the actuators... I haven't decided to to the rear door at this point. There's also a two door kit if you don't think you want to do the tailgate.

Four Door Kit:
A1 Electric Online Store: 4 Door Power Door Lock & AVI-2101 Keyless Entry

Two Door Kit:
A1 Electric Online Store: 2 Door Power Door Lock & AVI-2101 Keyless Entry

There are also other brands that don't cost as much. I went with the Swedish built units as recommended by the OP.
