Aftermarket installation of remote central locking on 2006 Nissan Navara ST-R
I have brought an aftermarket remote central locking kit for our '06 Nissan Navara ST-R. It already has keyed central locking, and I am told that it isn't hard to fit the remote components when this is already installed. Now I have taken off the door trim, I am unsure where to go next though. I have a master actuator in the kit that I assume has to go somewhere in the door but I cannot figure out where?? Can anyone help me on this one???
Re: Aftermarket installation of remote central locking on...
Doesn't matter, I have given up, the existing central locking components are completely different to that of the new kit, I think I will just have to put my tail between my legs and go genuine, getting a Nissan dealership to fit it for me.

Cheaper alternatives are out there, but when it comes to remotes, it all depends on what you want it to do. To simply unlock the doors (if the car has electric locks) is cheapest. To unlock doors and a liftback, the price goes up. To unlock doors, liftback, and a fuel door, the price goes up again. Want a panic button? Pay again. (See where I am going with this?)
All kidding aside, there are cheaper alternatives. Look up your local window tinting places and/or car stereo installation places. They will be much cheaper than the dealer, but to be honest, I have seen the workmanship and quality that many of those types of places produce and you would have rather spent the extra $100 you would likely saved to get a well installed and serviceable solution for your Nissan. The car is already fitted perfectly for the Nissan parts. The aftermarket installers have to "jury rig" many aftermarket parts to get them to fit. Up to you. Good luck.
There are lots of aftermarket filters available. Are you wanting an aftermarket direct replacement for the original filter? or are you wanting an aftermarket air filter modification kit? Both are available. I don't recommend using the modification kits however. These tend to mess with engine controls and cause all kinds of running problems and "Check Engine" nlights to come on.
Aftermarket direct replacement filters are available in several different brands including Wix, Purolator, STP, Fram, MicroGard, etc. - just call your localparts supplier.
There is no need to cut wires, you just remove the old one by disconnecting the connectors. If you start cutting, you'll just destroy the wire harness and defeat the concept of connectors. Besides you don't have a diagram of the electrical system. Now if this is an aftermarket unit, all I can say is good luck trying to adopt that system to your immobilizer system (anti theft).
The remote should be built into the key. If not the remote central locking would be after-market. After-market remote central locking is part of an anti theft device so the fob you get with the key's has two function's it opens the door and disables the imobliser. If it had a fob and it was'nt with the key's then the ignition would'nt work so the car would'nt start. So it dosent have remote locking. Before giving up check the dash and suround's for a small either green or red light which looks like it was installed after-market if their is one then it still may have remote locking but was disabled for some reason but although it is there unless you really need it don't bother with it because you will need to get it rewired then get a fob which will need to be programed. Hope this help's Cheer's
depends on the model. Some come from honda, others come with the option to have it added later from honda or aftermarket. I have an LX accord and that was the case so I had it installed aftermarket but my HX civic had it stock from honda. (contact honda to see if that is an option for your model)
