Anyone installed a keyless entry system recently? I am looking for a inexpensive system that comes with everything I would need to pop the trunk, lock and unlock doors. No security or connecting to lights... I have found some old posts but nothing too recent. Does the fiero have positive or negative trigger? I would rather get a system that has built in relays if needed. I have never installed a system like this. Thanks for any info

You mean something like

I got one like it a few years back, and seem to recall installing it very easily, above the evil blue box.

Then add two lock linear activators and you can get the job done for under $25. I am about to do this job very shortly on my 85GT . It makes it very convenient to unlock the doors for a friend. I also will add a door switch inside on the window switch console as my car doesn't have power windows.

I just installed the Amazon one a few weeks ago. Door locks are positive trigger, unit has relays internal so can be wired either way. A catch was the trunk pop output on the unit is negative trigger, so I had to put in a relay for that. Not a major ordeal to install. Hooked up light flash output for indication, but didn’t use horn output as that can be obnoxious.

It looks the same as the one in the link above, but my son bought it for me so I’m not sure if it is exactly. If not, I think it should install exactly the same.

I installed a keyless system on a friend's Fiero (and will be doing the same to mine in the future). The doors were not a problem, but the rear trunk latch was another thing, and I have yet to get that working. I did a bunch of searching on this site but could never quite get a clear answer on what exactly I needed to do. I understand I must to install a relay, can someone explain (diagram) exactly how I do that (and were I tap into the factory wiring)?

I'd really appreciate the help.

Thanks,
Art

Not recent, but cheap and easy. Someone was selling the parts as kits in The Mall, might still be.

So, the one I got from Amazon is the same as the one above, just dug out the lousy instructions. I don't have a diagram other than what came with the unit, but as I said above the trigger for the trunk release on this unit is negative, and the Fiero trunk release relay gets a positive signal from the trunk release switch. The wire you want to tap a positive output signal from the new relay into is a gray/black wire from the trunk release switch to the trunk release relay under the dash. In the diagram below, the blue wire from the unit goes to the negative side of the relay coil; the positive side of the coil and the relay common tie to your power source (always hot, likely the same source you used already for your keyless entry control). The normally open output of the relay then ties into the gray/black wire mentioned above. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures of the trunk release wiring, but relay is pretty easy to find under the dash. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info. I bought a unit on amazon with a switch for polarity on the trunk pop. Can set it to + or -. Also can be wired for + or - lock triggers. $17.99 and works great right out the box, no relays required.
