My avital 4103 will not lock or unlock my doors on my 01 crown vic

I have tried adjusting the pulse duration but none seem to work. I know it is hooked up to the correct wires, and i hear the unit click when i press the lock/unlock button but nothing happens.

    It is an Avital model 4103, 2001 crown victoria p71, I am a technician, but not at a certified DEI corporation. The car does not have a factory keyless entry system, but it does have power locks. Also, on the OEM wiring I see a "Lock Motor Wire" but I do not see anywhere to connect it to the remote start.

It sounds like you wired up the door locks incorrectly. You need relays to control your doorlocks. Follow the diagram in this link to wire up the relays.

SOURCE: driver's door won't unlock with remote

This may be a problem with wiring. I will need to know what the make and model is of the car. Also keyless entry system stock OEM or was that an option you have added? Lastly, did you install this system or was this installed by a cetified DEI corperation?

Thank you,

Check the alarm program it shoudl be programing to turns it On every 2 hours, or if you have a temperature sensor should be programed to turns it On when is too cold.

I have an avital 4103 in my 2004 silverado. It won't unlock the doors and it starts but immediately quits.

There is a bypass module that communicates with the truck. It's in addition to the 4103 system. It's lost its programming or is disconnected. Sometimes you can unplug the module, turn the key on, plug module back in, turn key off, then on and start. All should be working fine again.
