    adding power locks to trunk

    Hi everyone,
    I have foud a used power lock set in working condition, my car did not have this option it is a 1970 deville convertible. Is it possible for a company that installs alarm systems to create this to make it open with a keyless entry?
    Thank you!

    Re: adding power locks to trunk

    If you have functioning door locks, they could be added to an alarm remote if the alarm supports it. Installing the power locks is another question. You may or may not have all the parts you need (brackets, rods, clips, wiring, relay(s), etc.), it would be a relatively involved process to install properly, and I certainly would NOT trust to an alarm shop to do it. You never know how experience or careful a particular installer is going to be, it's luck of the draw, and could be a nightmare. If you were willing to tackle the door lock job yourself, you could have the alarm shop set up the functionality through the alarm and the remotes, and just leave the loose wires capped off under the dash to hook up yourself once the door locks were in.
