Hi Bibs'

Not a problem, I got my knuckles rapped before on another forum for posting alarm / central locking wiring details but there's nothing that someone couldn't find out if they really needed to -

 

On my '95 MY S4s the central locking is negative trigger & the cables you need are -

Lock - orange / blue ( number 2 on module )

Unlock - orange / red ( number 6 on module )

 

Phil.

yeah I kind of agree with that.there is absolutely no info on the net/forums etc re any alarm systems/diags etc.thatcham,cobra non of this is readily available.you download when you buy if your fitting it yourself and after that I think your pretty much on your own.the only benefit I think to fitting it yourself is that in the event of a problem you know where the wires are and how it was immobilised etc,steve

Mmm, according to the diagram there is no number 5 ?

Numbers 2 should be orange/blue with two wires coming from it & number 6 is orange/red with two wires coming from it.

According to the book the other connections on the control unit are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12. No 5 or 10 shown.

To be honest I can't remember if I checked the numbers on mine, I think I just found the correct coloured cables & connected it to them. I do remember it was a right royal PITA to access down in the footwell !!

As you're a full forum member have you downloaded the service book ? this has all the wiring diagrams in.

Phil.
