Subject: Let's console door lock a Z3 M coupe
Having the console door lock in my '96 328is and in my current '97 318tis
made me want this feature in my Z3 M coupe.
Since installing it, I've wired the car to lock with engine start.
Now, since installing John Firestone's programmable controller, it also
locks with car movement (5mph). This covers opening the door with the car
His controller also covers lock with engine start.
I mounted the console lock frame and switch in the space occupied by the
cigar lighter socket.
So that I could run the mobility kit and other things, I added a socket
assembly from the E46 Touring on the passenger side of the console. This
assembly gets you away from the cigar lighter look.
I have yet to figure out (although I'm aware of the procedure) how to
remove the stock cigar lighter socket. I removed it by destroying it.
Remove the fuse prior to doing this since the cigar lighter is powered at all
times though a 30 ampere fuse.
You then have to make the round hole square to accommodate the console lock
The console lock switch needs four wires going to it. Reference the
schematic. Two are to light up the switch. The other two route power
through the switch to the ZKE-IV module connector X13253 pin 19. You have to
add the pin to connector (1 of the 5) X13253 pin 19. The ZKE-IV module is
located in the area behind the glove box.
- Pin 1 = Wire to ZKE-IV module X13253-19
- Pin 2 = Dimmed lighting
- Pin 3 = Ground
- Pin 4 = Hot at all times
