Door Lock Interface, DEI 455T

I had one hard time finally finding one of these, been searching Ebay for probably around a month or so...
Well, 3 finally appeared. I figured I'd share my find for anyone else looking...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DEI-455T-Jee...item2c619b3f3f

It's the module you need to wire a aftermarket remote start kit into the power door locks on a '96, '97, '98 Grand Cherokee....

I know, I just can't find out how exactly to do the wiring and put in the relays for the door locks....

You dont need relays. Im a long time installer and have learned A LOT of tricks over the years. To disarm the OEM alarm you just tie the "disarm" wire from the remote start into the purple/yellow wire in the drivers door harness. That will disarm the OEM alarm when you remote start the jeep or unlock the doors. For door locks you open up the lock switch in the drivers door and solder a pair of wires right to the circuit board. All your doing is simulating your finger pushing the button. You have to solder to the 2 leads that come from the switch and go to the circuit board. Just a normal - signal.

Wow, thanks. Everyone else had told me that I needed either the module or a complicated wiring system because of how the key fobs need to get programed... I know I dont need to worry about an alarm, I lucked out and don't have one...
Well I guess it's too late now... I already got the module... Hopefully this will help the next person who is working on this...

I have one of the 455T's that I stashed a while ago incase I ever wanted to do alarm/remote start, does anyone have any tips on what wires are used and not needed with it?

Good find. If you have to do relays like I did, it's two relays in each door. Found a diagram on the Audiovox website (I was surprised too!) that worked fine.

I'm sorry for ressurecting an old thread, but JeepFreak could you PM me some more detailed instructions as to how one goes about bypassing the need for relays on the reverse polarity door locks? I've got a 96 Grand Cherokee that had an aftermarket keyless entry system installed. The previous owner replaced the door and did not have the relays transferred into the new door so I'm trying to see if I can get it work as cheaply as possible

I am working on my 96 grand cherokee and would like some more information. is this going to work as positive trigger? negative trigger? any more info on this would be helpful. I knew someone had to figure this out as they can all be unlocked from one switch.
