Central Locking

Recommended Posts

I have just fitted an alarm to my diso Jan 94 TDi. The alarm came with a central locking solenoid I fitted to the drivers side door. It seems the soleniod is not strong enough to lock the door. I have approached a local wrecker and asked if the sender mounted to the driver door that locks the other doors can be replaced with a sender and soleniod aswell. He told me that he thought the senser was a solenoid aswell but was not able to give me a wiring drawing.

Can anyone confirm this and let me know the what the wires do.

If this is not the case is there a later model disco part I can get to replace my sender unit that is a combined sender and solenoid.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Pete,

I will be interested to see the results from your question, As it could be a common fault.

My 94/95disco 300Tdi has had the same issue, IE sometimes it locked but mostly it seemed as if there is no power to to action the soleniod. I changed the fob battery... but no change. it now locks most times but with a very slow action.

I hope some of the more informed members can shed some light on this one for you as it might help a lot of others with the same issue...

good luck

Lawrence
