Electronics, Trip Computer and Smart Lock.


I saw an NC ghia at the wreckers the other day, virtually untouched. I was wondering whetheranyone knew if the Trip Computer, Smart Lock, Elect. Windows, Climate Control are easily installable into an EA S? What alterations do i have to do, and or what do I need?

You need to change the wiring loom in the dash and I think the plugs on the wiring that goes through the firewall are different and wont fit the later model dash loom, dont know what else you need though.

Well... all the extra things on a ghia will go into an S easily...
Some items are harder than others... U need basic electronic skills to get thru it tho...

Trip computer needs a new loom, and u need to run 3 additional wires to various parts of yer dash.

Power windows requires u to actually run all the wires yerself thru doors and under dash, etc... u also need to drill out the manual regulators (pop rivets) and screw in the new ones.

Climate control requires a fair bit if fiddling around and alot of new rewiring.

Smartlock i havent done coz i brought a mongoose instead :)

its really not that bad. aslong as you get all the looms out of the wrecked car it would be ok.

now in saying that you do need to be aware of the changes in models.

i did a full climate control, trip computer, fairmont bcm and power windows in my xr6. but it had to all be out of an eb11 or ed. i couldnt use any ea stuff.

so to make ur life a bit easyer i would be looking for a wrecked ea fairmont or fairmont ghia to ge the gear out of.

also, i had to change the heater box for the climate control and the full dash loom. all the other wiring was allready there in my car for power windows etc.

hope this helps a bit
