Default remote door lock woes...

First time poster in this forum. I have a 95 Legacy LS wagon to start and have a problem I am trying to figure out. I've done some searches here and elsewhere and thought I would throw this ou there. To begin, my car has an aftermarket remote door opener and car starter. I had all four doors replaced from a newer model legacy due to rust damage on all of them. The body guy was unable to repair the door control mechanism however.

I believe the original 95 door had an actuator installed in it to push pull the lock rods and was also able to unlock all doors and trunk. Sincs the installation of the new doors, the harnesses seem to not be the same on the drivers side door. I believe there IS an actuator in the new door that wasn't in the original door. To make matters worse, my key does not unlock the drivers side or trunk key lock (seized??) Trunk is original and the lock cylinders were replaced on both front doors.

Does anyone have wiring diagrams of the 95 legacy. I have from more recent years and from 94 back, but since I read recently that it had no actuator in the door from factory I'm wondering how it would unlock all other doors from drivers side door. Wiring harness from mine has a Red with Green and Light Green wire going from new door actuator on pins 21 and 24 of the harness, but are not same colour on chassis side. This is only on the drivers side. Passenger harness has same colours going to like colours on chassis side. If I had old diagram I would probably be able to figure it out. It's been frustrating to say the least...any insight would be a help...but considering it's a frankenstein job of new doors on an older chassis, it makes it a little harder.

thanks..

Thanks for the links. I do have that 97 wiring diagram already however. I am hoping to find one of a 95 if it is any different. Again, I read on here that in 95, there was no actuator in the drivers door..I'm wondering what triggered the other doors to unlock and where these wires are so I can tap back into them...

um, I'm pretty sure there is an actuator. I'll crack open my door panel to see tonight. I don't understand what it would use if there wasn't.

The cars with factory power door locks do not have an actuator in the driver's door, just a switch that activates all the other doors via the door lock control unit. Cars with factory RKE have an actuator in the driver's door which activates the other doors via the control module.

oooohhhh, I see. The driver's door doesn't need an actuator, because its entirely mechanical, due to the fact that it can only be unlocked/locked mechanically (with a key or the inside switch).

Reviving a thread from the dead...

So, I'm trying to diagnose/resolve a power door lock issue with a '95 L wagon. The key unlocks the passenger's door by itself but when the driver's door is unlocked, all three other doors also unlock. Is this factory operation for a '95?

The reason I ask is, I have a '98 L wagon and the key unlocks both front doors just by themselves. I have to actually hit the power "unlock" button to unlock all doors.

And here in lies the real problem with the '95...after unlocking the driver's door [and all other doors] to gain entry, sometimes before starting the engine, sometimes after, the passenger and rear door lock actuators will all cycle [closed/open] together, numerous times. I think this happened for an unknown length of time while the car was parked in the driveway and ran the battery dead.

Above, in post #5, US2JDM mentions factory locks with control "unit" and RKE with control "module". What is RKE?

I ended up disconnecting the harness at what I thought was the power lock control unit, under the dash, above the driver's left foot. I would post a picture of what I disconnected, but, it doesn't appear I have the option to upload pictures.

Has anyone else run into this very annoying electrical gremlin?
