first thing to do before buying any parts is to check if your alarm
system control module can support remote central locking (RCL).
So far almost everyone I have come across can but some have damaged
circuits so best to check. With the car unlocked put your key in
the ignition and turn to position I (Ie, Radio only) watch the dash
LED for about 20 seconds and when/if it illuminates turn the key
back to the off position. The alarms LED should remain lit which
indicates its ready to be programmed, in which case you can turn
the ignition to position II and back off to reset it.
your LED hasn't illuminated then your alarm module doesn't support
RCL and you'll need to obtain one that can, new from ford are about
£100 so get one from a scrappy and remember since every mondeo has
one don't pay more then about £20.
start this modification you need to disconnect the power to the
alarm module so open the passenger side fusebox and remove fuse
number 25. Alternatively unhook all the connectors going into the
this is what the receiver looks like from the side, the connector
will go into the bottom and the actual receiving bit is on the left.
Take into consideration the size of it because there are only a
few places it can go if you don't mount it in its original location
(Behind the door handles)
is looking down on the module into where the connector would go,
with the receiving bit on the right, the pins are labeled from left
to right as 1 2 and 3 - which if you look down at the pins base
you should see engraved.
the wiring should already be from the alarm to the door pillar so
if you want to go for the original fit then you need to obtain a
new door handle surround, door loom and simply do the plug and play
routine. However if you want to mount them elsewhere then you'll
need to splice into the wiring at the control module.
to the above right of the accelerator pedal you'll find the alarm
module (Labeled B in this photo). There are three multi-plugs going
into it, a big chunky one on the far right with about 8 wires (this
is the power supply) and then two thinner ones that go to various
sensors on the car. The plug we are interested in is the one furthest
to the left of the alarm module.
shows you the wiring that is needed in order to make the system
work. Start by undoing the housing on the third alarm connector,
its a push clip design and should come off easily enough to allow
access. From here you can trace the wires you'll need. (Looking
from into the connector (ie, alarm side) with the key (the clip)
at the top the pins are labeled from top right as pin 1 across the
top line to pin 10 and then down to the second row for pin 20 and
running back along to pin 11 (under pin 1) like so:
9 8 7
6 5 4
3 2 1
19 18 17 16 15
14 13 12 11
pins we need to connect to are 1, 3, 4 and 5.
some 4 core cable if you intend to use both receivers.
pin 3 from both receivers to the cable coming from pin 4 on
the alarm module (Black).
both pin 1's from the receivers to the wire at pin 5 on the
alarm module (Orange/Blue)
pin 2 of one receiver to pin 1 of the alarm module (White)
if you want the second receiver then connect that ones pin 2
to the alarm modules pin 3 (White/Black)
should now have ended up with the above diagram - remember the wiring
colours shouldn't have varied from the alarm module so make sure
you are splicing into the correct cables!
note here that the sensors must not be mounted in such a way that
they are both able to receive a signal from the key fob at the same
final stage is to program the key for to the alarm module and vice-versa.
Step 1 - Put
your key into the ignition and turn it to position 1, Wait for the
alarm light to come on in the dash and then remove the key before
the light goes out.
2 - Point the remote at one of your receivers and press the
bottom button until light flashes on transmitter (keep the button
3 - Whilst the bottom button is held in press the front button
4 times then release both at the same time.
4 - Both the keyfobs LED and the alarm LED should flash to indicate
communication complete. Put your key back into your ignition and
turn to position 2. The LED on the dash will then extinguish and
programming (and this modification) is complete.
