Do the Klassic Keyless systems maintain the factory locks and handles?
Yes, all of our power door lock, keyless entry, and alarm systems are designed to be used with all of your factory door latches, handles, lock cylinders, and lock knobs still in tact and fully functioning. Your doors and trunk will still be able to be unlocked with the key in case of a dead battery etc. just as it did before you installed our system.
Why does my trunk not open when I press the trunk button on my remote?
On our 3 button remote systems, you must hold down the trunk button for 5-6 seconds. The keyless entry brain is programmed with this delay so that if you accidentally press that button while putting your keys away, the trunk is not open while the car is unattended.
My keyless entry just stopped working, how do I fix it?
If while pressing the buttons on your remote there is no response from the car (no lock/unlock, no flashing park lights, no clicking sound from the brain), then most likely the batteries in the remote need to be replaced even if the LED on the remote still lights up. There can be enough charge left in the batteries to light the LED, but not enough to transmit the signal to the car. Each remote uses (2) CR-2016 button type batteries that can be found at Walmart or Walgreens. If you are unable to find them, a single CR-2032 battery will also work, but you may experience reduced range from it.
If while pressing the buttons on your remote, the park lights flash and you can hear a clicking sound from the brain, but the locks do not work, then most likely a fuse has blown on either the white or white/black stripe wires at the keyless entry brain. This is usually caused by one of the blue/green twisted pair wires being pinched or chafed by metal and grounding out. Replace the blown fuse and try the remotes, if it blows the fuse again, then inspect the wiring going out to the actuators. If there is no sign of damage to the wires, then test for a faulty actuator. Do this by unplugging one door actuator, replace the blown fuse, and press the remote buttons. Then plug that actuator back in and unplug the other actuator and repeat. If one side blows the fuse and the other side does not, then replace the actuator that blows the fuse. Replacement actuators can be found in our keyless parts section.
I have a non-stock fuse box in my vehicle, where do I connect the Park Light wire?
The park light wire is a +12V output from the keyless entry to flash the park lights when you lock and unlock the doors as a visual indicator that the keyless is working. At the back side of the headlight switch, locate the wire for the park lights and "T" into that wire. Output from the light switch will not hurt the keyless entry system. The wire that you are looking for will give a full +12V when the headlight switch is pulled out one click, and will not dim or reduce voltage when the light switch is twisted as it will for the dash light lead.
Can I purchase just the door hardware to add to my alarm or push-to-start system?
Yes, we have recently added a series of door lock systems to our keyless offerings that are perfectly suited to add to an existing aftermarket alarm or push-button-start system with negative(-) trigger door lock/unlock outputs. We have assembled everything you need to add power door locks to your system, including prewired relays, actuators, vehicle specific mounting brackets and rods, door jamb boots, wire, connectors, and all hardware in addition to our full color photo step by step installation manual. Look for your application in our "Power Door Locks" section on this website.
Does your system work for Shaving Door Handles?
No, our system does not work for shaving door handles. Klassic Keyless systems are designed to lock and unlock doors with factory door latches and handles still in tact. Our system can be used with aftermarket or custom adapted door handles such as Kin-Dig-It so long as there is still an exterior door handle used to open the door. Shaved door handles generally require a 50-100 lb. pull type solenoid to release the latch that our 15 lb. bi-directional actuator would not be able to do.
Can I shave my lock cylinders and still use your system on my vehicle?
Yes, Klassic Keyless has designed all of our systems to be able to be used without lock cylinders if you desire a smoothed out exterior look. We do, however, recommend some sort of emergency manual release in case of a dead battery etc. Our power trunk latch can be modified to be used with a manual pull cable to use as a backup. Give us a call if you need any help with ideas on how to setup an emergency release.
Can interior lock switches/trunk button be added to your keyless entry systems?
Yes, interior door lock switches and/or a power trunk release button can be added to our keyless entry and alarm systems. We can add input wiring to our keyless/alarm brains to be used with owner supplied switches (power trunk release buttons we have available) that will control the onboard relays to lock/unlock the doors like factory power door locks. At this time this is a special order request so you will need to call us (402-502-6926) to order a system over the phone to get this provision.
