Default power door locks and relay

my car didn't come with power locks, but i want to change that now. i'm taking the factory ones out of a cutlass at the junkyard. but my question is do i really have to take the door lock relay as well? i only want the power door lock motors so i can use them with a keyless entry system that i will buy later. so i hoping those kits come with their own relay assemblys. what do you all think?

If you're using a GM keyless entry system kit, no, they do not have their own relays.

You need the relay. If i remember correctly the relay is what reverses polatity so the door lock accuator works correctly. In other words, apply power and ground the door lock accuator goes one way, reverse polarity the accuator goes the other way. Just use the factory relay and use the keyless entry to trigger that.

Cool now all you REALLY need is the late 80's early 90's Cavalier remote sensor box and a generic GM key fob that you can program yourself. I can see the picture of the box you need in my head, but can't tell you what other forum I saw it on. Search google for "GM remote lock in a G body" I THINK that is how I found it on some cavalier or sunbird forum..

Great score the speaker adapters alone cost more than that new, and these look mint.

I want to go in this direction with my speakers but a previous owner? or whomever butchered the rear side panels and installed 6 inch speakers. Guessing I will just leave it that way or have a massive hole in each panel to contend with.

i never thought to just grab an used keyless entry from the junkyard. guess it couldn't hurt. trial and error. i did run across the old style car phone in a oldsmobile 98 that i wanted just to say i have one(rather it really worked or not). that olds 98 had 'OLDSMOBILE' embroided on the blue leather seats. i wanted that too but i don't think it holds the cutlass look that i like more.
