Remote door lock on rear door
Posted 13 November 2004 - 07:23 AM
Has this been done before,... i know from a gregories service manual, some soobs from 86 had central locking.
I was gonna put some 6x9 speakers in the rear door while i was at it also, anyone got any tips on this.

6x9's can physically be installed in the hatch, but the location is not good for fidelity. The rear seat will absorb alot of the sound. A better placement would be up high in the rear corners in self-contained boxes
good luck, John

My '85 Gl-10 has the separate switch, all of my later models (GL, GL-10, and Loyale) operate of off driver's lock.
... GLs could unlock their hatches individually, but Loyales have it just linked to the power locks.
Regarding speakers in the hatch: Any significant weight added will cause hatch to creep/drop closed, overpowering the air struts.

(P.S. My car is a wagon)
Would the weight of 2 speakers realy affect the car that much, i have 2 6x9's in 6X9 boxes just sittin on the floor in my boot, only problem is they slide around as i go around corners

Why don't you take those boxes and bolt them to the ceiling or something? Then you would gave tolerable fidelity (well... for a 6x9 ) and you wouldn't have anything sliding around, nor a hatch that might fall on your head.

stuck the boxes behind the rear wheel well, with the plywood end at the very back of the car - they stay put now, unless I get really wild around corners, and I dont do that much
ps: the rear hatch lock works with the drivers door lock on my 89 GL wagon....no dash switch
