Classic Mini - Central Locking System

Installation Instructions

Caution

1. DISCONNECT THE BATTERY before starting work
2. Observe Manufacturers Safety Instructions when using Power Tools
3. To prevent damage to the exterior door skin, place a piece of wood inside the door when drilling the inner skin.



Identify and check the contents of the kit that should contain the following:-

Electronic Control Module 1
Cable Assembly 1
Lock Motors 2
CDL Lever Assembly 2 (Left and Right Hand)
Pack of Fixings and Accessories 1

Remove door handle, window winder and grab handle from each door. Unclip the plastic lock button surround. Unscrew and remove the door pockets where fitted, then carefully remove the door trim panels by releasing the plastic clips from the sides and bottom and slide the trim down.

Drill a 14mm hole in each door pillar, just below the interior light switch, and in the leading edge of each door just below the upper hinge for the door cables. If necessary release the check strap from the door (by removing the clevis pin) to gain access. Treat the bare metal edges to prevent corrosion.

Photograph 2 shows a Right Hand door with the two templates in position. Carefully cut the two templates from the sheet and position them (with the printing showing) as shown in the photograph. Use the trim clip location hole to accurately align the templates by carefully cutting out these holes in the template. Mark the location of the four 5mm holes for the motor and lever assembly and remove templates for use on the other door. Drill the four 5mm holes taking care to prevent damage to the outside door skin by placing a piece of wood behind where the holes are to be drilled. Repeat for the Left Hand door with the templates reversed (plain side showing).

Fit the CDL Lever Assembly as shown in Photograph 6 using the 5mm screws and nylock nuts as supplied. Note that the pivot hole should be at the bottom of the fixing strip and make sure the CDL lever is positioned in front of the factory lever as shown.

Attach the Lock Motor to the hook. Note the hook should point down and the large body of the Lock Motor should face upwards. If necessary, temporarily remove the CDL lever from the fixing strip to make attaching the lock motor easier. Fix the Lock Motor to the door using the self-tapping screws supplied taking care not to over tighten. Repeat for the Left Hand door.

To ensure correct operation it is necessary to accurately mark and drill the factory locking lever to attach the top end of the CDL Lever Assembly. The procedure is as follows.

1. Open the door and with a screwdriver or similar tool push the lock actuator to simulate a door closure (see photograph).
2. Using the key to operate the lock, note the mid point in its travel and keep the factory operating lever in this position.
3. Pushing the CDL lever fully backwards and forwards mark the extremes of its travel on the factory operating lever (see Photographs 3 & 4).

4. Estimate the mid point, mark and move the CDL lever to this position (see Photograph 5).

.5. Check that the hole in the CDL lever aligns with the factory lever on the flat part just before it bends inwards. If not carefully ease the holes for the fixing strip to ensure the CDL lever aligns correctly.
6. Using the hole in the top of the CDL lever as a guide, drill a 3mm hole centrally through the factory lever (see Photograph 6) taking care to protect the door skin with a piece of wood.



7. Attach the CDL lever to the factory lever using the 3mm screw and nylock nut supplied.
8. Press the button on the external door handle to open the lock.
9. Repeat for the other door.


Mount the control unit in a suitable location in the dash area and connect 8 way connector on the harness to the unit. Identify the two separate 5 wire sections of the harness for each door and run each through the holes in the door pillar and door to each door. Use the grommets and sleeving supplied where the cables pass between the door pillar and the door and use the cable ties to secure as necessary. Make sure the cable does not interfere with the window mechanism and locate any excess cable in the bottom of the doors. Connect the end of each door harness to the lock motor matching the wire colours.

Connect the BLACK wire in the harness to a suitable ground point and connect the RED wire to a permanent live feed, the BROWN wire on the 5 pin ignition switch plug is a suitable point. Insulate and secure the BROWN and WHITE wires unless you intend to use our Rover Alarm interface, in which case follow the instructions supplied with that kit.

Check all cables are secure and all connections are made. Reconnect the battery. With both doors closed, operating the lock with a key from the outside or the lever from the inside should cause the other door lock to operate simultaneously. Note that the system will only work if both doors are closed.

TROUBLESHOOTING

If the system fails to operate, first check that all connections are made correctly particularly the BLACK ground and the RED power leads. Also check the fuse.

If these are OK - remove the 3mm fixing which attach the operating lever from both doors and check that operating the lever on one side causes the other to move. If the motors still do not operate the problem is likely to be electrical. If the levers operate correctly the problem is likely to be with fixing of the mechanism. Adjustment can be obtained by easing the holes where the lever attaches to the door, moving the pivot point backwards or forwards, to ensure the lever has the correct travel and operates the switches in the lock motors. Remember that the system will only work with both doors closed.

Rover Alarm Interface

Installation Instructions


Identify and check the contents of the kit that should contain the following:-

Electronic Control Module 1
Splice Connector 1

The Rover Alarm Module is located on the front bulkhead, behind the dash panel just above the point where the heater pipes enter. See Photograph 2. Remove the wooden dash (if fitted) and any trim necessary to gain access to the 26 way connector on the module.
Remove the connector and fold back the flap on the side with the clip as shown in Photograph (Note the wiring connector on early cars is the picture shown on the right)

Next insert the crimp terminal on the end of the ORANGE wire in the connector housing in position 13. This can be identified as the empty position on the end adjacent to the large purple wire already in the connector. Now insert the PINK wire in position 11 (next but one). See photograph 4. Ensure the terminals are inserted the same way round as the existing terminals and that they click home correctly. Close the cover and reconnect to the Alarm Module.

Now connect the BROWN and WHITE wires to the corresponding coloured wires in the Central Locking Harness. Connect the BLACK wire to the BLACK wire in the Central Locking Harness using the Splice connector provided.

Reconnect the battery and re-enable the alarm system by setting and resetting the alarm 3 times with the remote. The system should now operate the central locking whenever the alarm is set or reset. Remember the central locking system will only work with the doors closed. If the alarm is set or reset with a door open it will be necessary to operate the central door locking manually before the system can be operated using the alarm remote.
