    This may seem like a silly question, and I'm sure it is... but on s13s (or at least, my s13 lol), when I lock the driver side door, the pass. side locks. When I unlock the driver side, the pass side unlocks. When I lock or unlock the pass side, nothing happens to driver side. Are s13 power locks true power locks with actuators and everything, or is it some mysterious something else that's going on?

    The passenger side only unlocks passenger side.

    Yeah I had a feeling the pass side only unlocking pass side was intentional, but my question is are they like power locks in cars with normal locks (like my mother's tahoe, for example) where there is a relay and motor, etc to mechanize the lock mechanism?

    (Trying to figure out if I need to buy aftermarket relays and motors for my keyless entry is what this all boils down to lol)

    I dont think you need extra stuff.
    I pretty sure that you can just tap into the existing system.

    I have not messed with that part yet. When I do I will probably scream.

    I have actually put an alarm in a s13 and it was a pain in the ass.. had to use a relay, since the power locks on the s13 run off of one wire, for both unlock and lock, so you have to wire it up a certain way for it to work correctly.... took me a total of like 6 hours or so for the entire alarm and keyless entry system.. PM me for more info.. I have the wiring diagram at my parents house and i'll look for it next time I go there and hopefully be able to get it posted...
