Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
I am trying to wire a remote keyless entry on the bench before I install it. I have all the componets and a schematic. I just do not speak schematic. How do I put a relay in place using plain old english? If I can get it to work, I can install the actuators and hide the harness. I do not care about any other features except maybe the trunk release.
A bench test will require a 12VDC source, such as an car battery. You would connect wires according to the instuctions (i.e., red to 12v(+), black to 12v(-), and the required ignition wire you can toggle by touching it to the 12v(+) when required. Your schematics should show how the relay needs to be wired. And it's really simple. 85 and 86 are the coils. In most cases, (for example), 85 will have a 12v(+) connection, 86 will receive an input from the remote keyless entry (RKE) to activate the option. So, if you're using this relay, say, to activate your 12V(+) parklights, the 12V(-) from the RKE will go to 86, you'll have another 12V(+) wire connected to 30, and the connection to the vehicles parklights will connect to 87. 87a will have no connection in this application. The 12v(+) to the relay should come from a fused 12v(+) source.Trunk release will work the same, depending on whether it's a positive or negative trigger (depends on vehicle). You'll use the trunk output (should be a negative output from RKE) to the relay as described above. If the Trunk release is a negative trigger, you would connect a wired from a ground source (i.e., metal screw in kick panel) to 30, and 87 would go to the trunk's trigger wire at the switch.
