Right so pissed off.

All i want is no door handles and not have to drive 300 miles to get it done.

Most places i have been ringing up to get em fitted fob me off with the "it cant be done bollox" or say they wont touch my car cos they didnt fit the alarm.

The place that fitted my alarm are a bunch of retards, say it cant be done etc lied to me and pissed me about long story.

So i now still dont have solenoids and looks like no-way of getting em


Any help?
Theres a guy off here who had em done but it was in hull too far
Im based in berks if theres anyone knows a good alarm engineer???

mate they are really very simple

its basicly a pod which fixes anywhere inside the door (bottom outtermost corner i used) with 2 screws and then a wire which is attached to the outside door latch bar

very easy

mate

wire from battery on car to a fuse

wire from fuse to a "push to make" button under mirror

wire from other side of switch to the + on the solinid

wire from the - on the solinoid to the cars body

when u push button it completes the circut and pops door

mine ALSO has a wire from alarm to the popper to open it too
