RETROF IT GUIDE F O R KE60 – j o n @wendzin a.com

It woul d seem after much resea r ch and man y painful ho urs with my head under the dashbo a rd, I’ve finally m anaged to r etro fit rem o te locking i n to a Fabia w ith only ge neric central locking.

As ther e are no gui d es, I promis ed I’d make o ne. So her e ’s how I did it:

The kit used in this g uide was KE 60 from rcli ck.co.uk. I d ecided to us e this kit as i t provides 2 x folding keys wh ich house th e transpond er from the existing key . If requeste d, I will mak e a separate guide for key t ransferral.

The first thing to do is to disassemble a few elements of the interior. You need to remove various elements of the dash in order to get to some of the electrical areas.

First, pull the upper trim of the wheel towards you.

Gently lower the lower panel, making sure you don’t pull any cables. Before entire removal, you must open the small storage area and pull out where you will reveal a diagnostic socket. Push this out. Also, you need to remove the aircon hose from this storage area, and release the headlight cables. The trim is now free for you to put to one side.

Central locking in a Fabia is Negative Type 6. This means that the system relies on a single wire opening and closing mechanism, taking voltage from a grounded source. There are 8/9 cables from the provided loom that you have to connect. The easiest ones are the earth/live cables. The large black cable needs to be earthed to the chassis, the best point I found is by the fuse box (see below)

You will need to splice two further cables into the earth (directly from the loom) to provide grounded voltage to the OPEN/CLOSE cables. (Yellow & Yellow/Black).

Typically, as with many VW based cars, pin 10 is Black/White and pin 12 is Black/Green, splice one brown into each of these.

Finally, you need to wire into the existing door.

With your door open pull this hosing free (see below)

At the bottom you will see a white plug. This is where you need to wire the white/black and white cables. First you must solder on a 180ohm resistor on the black and white cable. Then join (after the resistor) the black and white cables together.

I soldered them onto a single white wire and fed it through the chassis out of a small hole (as per the diagram above) and wired it into Pin 5 at the plug. The Yellow and Blue cable.

Put it all back together and you’re done! Easy!

FURTHER NOTES

During my first attempt, there were a few small errors I made preventing the system from working. The provided splicers didn’t seem to splice well enough on my first crimp. Make sure they are pulled together with pliers and check there’s a +12V output from the yellow / yellow/black once you have spliced them into the black.

Make sure you wire into PIN 5 in the existing central locking. Yellow and Blue not Blue and Yellow where Blue is predominant.

I hope this is of some use. Please ask if you have any questions.
