    Question Easy to fit full closure on mk4?

    is this worth doing? i read the how-to guide and it looks pretty simple but i dont wna end up cuttin through any wires that i shudnt do!

    also, while im ere, i have remote central locking and it doesnt work from much of a distance, its a 1998 model so is this just normal and sometimes the deadlocks dont work but afta a quick spin they start again! anyone had this problem?

    Hi my son Maxx89 has fitted total closure to his Mk 4 Astra recently and it was a really simple job, im sure if you pm him he can fill you in on the details later when he is home? Jx

    i got my total closure unit of a fellow member

    really cant remember who know it was but they made them seleves and came with really easy to follw instructions

    it also spliced into the wires rather than having to cut them.

    the hardest part was getting the interior trim off which took all of 5mins.

    as for the car not always deadlocking - change the battery in the key, my started doing the same so i chaged the battery and has been fine ever since

    /\ /\ also when u change the battery - pop a piece of folded up paper or card ontop of the battery and between that and the case....this will help push the battery down onto the contact pins as these sometimes break free from the PCB.

    Most TC modules come with comprehense fitting instructions so nothing to be worried about here.....

    What I would strongly advise though is to source a quality unit from LMF or http://www.totalclosure.com/

    Wouldnt be tempted to scrimp and save and cut corners by buying dubiously designed units

    ....oh and forgot to mention...

    Make sure your car has factory closure as standard

    open window, get out and lock the car with the key in the door - hold it in the deadlock position until the window goes up

    If the window dont go up (and the one touch feature has been enabled) then this kit will NOT work on ur car.

    NOT all models have this feature - particularly some of the early coupes

    i fitted mine and it was no problem
    the panel was a right pain to get off, i managed to get it back on but its not on perfect

    sometimes my car doesnt deadlock when i open it, get in, dont drive or turn the engine off, then try to deadlock it

    otherwise if i drive it normally and lock the car it always deadlcoks
