Default Adding remote control to power door locks

I just added a remote control unit to my power door locks.
It was very easy. The unit came from JC Whitney for about $40 and includes two key chain remotes.
It only involved hooking up 4 wires. You just need to tie into the 2 wires going to the door switch, hook up a ground and a constant hot wire.
I tied into the door switch wires in the wiring harness on the inside of the car just inside the door.
The unit doesn't beep but the door locks are loud enough that you can hear them lock and unlock.

The remote on my LS1 when I hit the locks dosen't beep (factory) but as you said the locks are loud enough ti hear. The front ligghts flash when I unlock the doors but I think that is to show the alarm is off. If use the remote to lock the doors and set the alarm (Have to hit 2X) then the horn beeps. If I hit the lock while the door is open security light comes on 4 beeps. When dooris closed doors lock, lights flash no beep (Alarm is on). Went a little overboard here.

Rick- your alarm will come on if you just hit the lock button once.... the 2x beep is just to verify that its all locked up and that the alarm is set.

I don't think mine does that but I'll have to double check and test. I think I might have changed the settings (They have instructions in the manual so you can change things a little) . If I hit lock with doors open locks and security go on.. If I close doors ten lock u have to hit the button 2X for lights flash and horn beeps. I'll test and let everyone know. Read the owners manual and you can set a few things to you liking.

That's why I never buy this option. Always wind up either setting off the horn or locking myself out.

Guess us old farts just can't deal with newfangled gadgets <grin>.

Your right. If I hit the lock with the doors closed just one time the security light is on. Should beep when this happens so you know the alarm is on. So the 2nd time you hit the button does nothing except flash the lights and chirp the horn. Seems dumb to me.
