I am almost done with wiring up the RKE and having trouble figuring out the tan wire. Pulled off the kick panel, black plastic shield, and see the connector. No where do I see two tan wires coming off the A pin, actually its a grey. Pin H is tan, is it this one I cut and connect with the tan from RKE? I have 87 MCSS.

I am going to attempt this installation on my 1987 Regal with the factory anti-theft option. I found a module from a 1998 Monte Carlo, and then got 2 remotes from ebay.

Has anyone attempted to install RKE with the factory Anti-Theft system? It is unclear if the unlock part of the module will also disable the alarm (usually done when using the key to unlock the door - there is a switch on the cylinder that disables the alarm).

Any ideas?

-Bill

I have looked all over the salvage yards around me and no one has one of these modules. if anyone has a extra module with 18 inches of harness that plugs into it they want to part with I would be very happy. thanks John

I know this is an old post, but does anyone have a picture of this module mounted in the ju k yard car? I spent the day looking for one. Sweat my @ss off , 98 degrees here and I found nothing. Is this thing hidden in the truck, or easily seen?

I know this is an old thread. Ii spent pretty much the whole day yesterday at 2 different junk yards, in 98 degree sunny temps trying to find this keyless module with no luck. Anyone have a picture of one mounted in the stock location in the junkyard car?

I don't have one where you can see the module in it's location, but I found this stock image and circled where it would be.


It sits on top of the metal deck, but under the carpet/insulation.

Easiest way to do it (if it's 1000 degrees outside and the yard isn't watching) Grab the top left corner of the back seat, pull it and bend it out of the way, grab the carpet and insulation, weave the seatbelt out of it then bend that out of the way. Reach straight back near the corner and if the car is equipped with the keyless system, you will feel the black box and harness. Actually your hand should run straight into it without much feeling around. If you peel the carpet/insulation back enough you could probably see it. The box is held on to the metal shelf with velcro.

If you don't see it up there, don't worry about looking elsewhere on the vehicle because it probably doesn't have one.

It's in the same spot for 90's luminas and monte carlos. I've never really looked in other models.

Next time I go I'll try to both take a picture of one as installed from the factory and also grab a couple. Not all have them but many do, not sure if it's half or more/less. Not too hard to find them once I figured it out. The pic above is a pretty good help.

WELL #$%^&*&^%$

I was looking in the wrong place. Maybe I will go back tomorrow morning, there was half a dozen Montes/Luminas there. Surely one of them has it.

I was also told that some montes also had them directly behind the glove box. Never seen them either place so far. Bummin big time. If anyone can get their hands on one with harness. Let me know

Went out to the yard today and started hunting in late 90's Monte Carlo. Found one in a 1999 Monte, looked like a luxury edition and had controls on the steering wheel. I needed only wire cutters, as the rear trey cover is a slip on.

What mounts the module to the tray? No bolts? You only had to cut the wires?

I just pulled two of these with about 12" of wiring. PM if interested, I pulled them for potential members due to the interest in them. No key fob's just the module and 12" wiring leads, which is more than necessary based on my one install so far.

Sold the two I had, not sure if I'll get more. If so I'll post in the classifieds.

Just did this mod on my SS and it works perfectly. I mounted mine under the dash so I wouldn’t have to run the wiring from the trunk. I attached the lighting wire to the PS door striker so the dome lights come on when it’s activated. I also hooked the trunk release to the black wire coming off the trunk release button in the glove box. I don’t know if it’s 100% necessary, but I moved the power supply to the glove box trunk button from an accessory power supply to a constant power supply on the fuse panel. This requires a little trimming of the connector but will now allow that button to work without the key in the accessory position. All in all this is an easy and cheap quality of life upgrade. I got my RKE module from a 99 Monte Carlo which appeared to be a base model.

How long does the lights stay on when its activated, does it only blink or stays on for a certain amount time? blue wire to orange on door pin?

Sorry, I just saw your reply. I spliced the dark blue wire to the single wire coming out of the back of the door pin. The light stays on for a while when you unlock the doors (45-60 seconds by my guess) and only stays on for a few seconds after locking the doors. Hope this helps!

Good, I think I will go back and splice that blue wire in on the install I did some time ago. Thanks for the info.
