Frequently Asked Questions FAQ’s
  1. What is Remote keyless Entry system RKE.
    A remote keyless entry system or remote central locking is a system designed to remotely lock, or unlock.
    It duplicates all of the features of a standard car key with the added convenience of operating the power door locks, eliminating the need to physically manipulate a key into a lock as well as being able to do so at a distance.
    The functions of a remote keyless entry system are contained on a small, hand-held fob attached to the keychain or built into the ignition key handle itself. Buttons are set aside to either lock or unlock the doors, plus open the trunk. Some cars will also close any open windows when remotely locking the car.
     
  2. How easy is to install.
    The actual time your installation will demand; depends on your level of experience.
    All units come with a general wiring diagrams for any car, plus we provide specific wiring instruction for majority of the cars. For most vehicles made up to 2004/5, Rightclick gives you a sheet that tells the location and colour of the wires you need to access in your vehicle (for the central lock part). At the time of your order, Please advice your car make/year/model so we can send this information with your system. You will also receive The Universal Central Lock wiring diagrams for any car PLUS Car Security Installation Guide.
    Installing - Car Alarm OR Remote Keyless:
    Installing Remote Keyless Kit is a lot easier than installing Car Alarm Kit, It does not matter where you buy your car alarm from, it requires installation by a qualified person. Any one that tells you installing a car alarm is easy is not true unless the installation is carried out by some one experienced in car alarm installation. Car alarms has many options to offer that is not required/included by the Remote Keyless Kit. We sell both Car Alarms, Remote Keyless and many other car accessories.

    • Manual C/L means when you unlock the drivers door with your existing key all other doors also unlocks.
    • If your car does not have manual C/L there is a few kits we sell that converts your manual door locking to central locking system, this comes with wiring diagram (Mechanical fitting instructions are not included). Please check our Central Locking Category listings for the item you need.
    • In case your central locking system can NOT be opened and closed from the passenger door, you need to install an additional control device ( motor also called solenoid or actuator) into the driver’s door. There are 2 types (5wire and 2wire) generally 2wire motor will work.

    If your car has central locking and wants to convert to Remote Keyless Entry, then we suggest any of our keyless kits: Remote Keyless.
    If your central locking system only operates from the drivers door key (not the passengers) then you will need a  2 wire motor for your drivers door PLUS any one of our Remote Keyless Kits.

    If you are after a flip key RKE then we suggest the 670 (BM type key) , 669 (Any key blank) or 851 (VW Original HAA key). Most of our kits are similar except for the remotes-fobs? YOU JUST PICK THE Ones YOU LIKE...

  7. Immobilizer
    This ONLY applies if you buy remotes with key blanks (blank keys that are screwed into the handheld transmitters). The immobilizer transponder chip has to be stuck into our handheld transmitters (remote controls). (i.e. If your existing key has chip inside, some can transfer their chip into our remotes! and save 100’s £££).
    If your car remote key has immobilizer-chip inside:-
    Customers do different things:
     - Transfer the chip to our remote,  (NOTES: only some of our remotes has space inside for the immobilizer chip like our 669 or 851)
     - Place their existing key under or flush mounted in the dashboard...
     - Use a Transponder Bypass - for car alarms (Transponder Immobiliser Bypass Module TBM01)
     - Do not use the key-blank and Attach your own key to our remotes (using our FREE key ring! supplied with all our kits)
     - Or buy one of our remote kits that don’t have a key blank! 
     
    What is an immobiliser?
    An immobiliser is an electronic device which stops the car from being started if it is broken into. Although this won’t stop your car from being broken into, it may well stop it from being driven away. Most newer cars come with some sort of alarm and/or immobiliser
    My vehicle already has a factory transponder or smart key system, which is built into its ignition key?
    There are many factory immobilizers in the marketplace i.e. ACURA IMMOBILIZER, AUDI IMMOBILIZER, BMW EWSII, CHRYSLER SentryKey, FORD SecuriLock/PATS, GM PASSlock II, HONDA IMMOBILIZER, and TOYOTA Engine Immobilizer to name a few. These anti-theft systems consist of a miniature transponder imbedded in the ignition key head itself, which allows the vehicle’s computer to identify the "real ignition key" and thereby enable the vehicle to start. These systems are factory installed on many new vehicles at no charge.
    Recently, a national automotive magazine published information on how to bypass these systems - it only takes about 20 seconds. Also, there is a company that manufactures a product called the "No Key Required Bypass Kit", which bypasses the transponder key system in any vehicle made.
    TRANSPONDER BYPASS MODULE: Required on most vehicles from 1997 (and some earlier) for remote starters to function (This ONLY applies if you buy kits with remote engine start). Allows the alarm to turn the factory fitted immobiliser off when remote start (Engine start) is used.
