Autotuning is a very complex and comprehensive topic. Tuning a car in all its facets means that in addition to the body itself, it is also dedicated to the interior and also the modification of mechanical and electrical elements. The final goal should be to create a shapely and coherent overall tuning object without losing the essential characteristics of the basic model. It is important to create not only visual changes but also technical highlights. This certainly includes the installation of a central locking, if this is not yet available. And one can hardly believe it, even vehicle with year of construction + 2015 are far from standard equipped with a central locking system.
What is a central locking?
Not everyone knows the times when you had to lock each door individually. Just when it should be fast, you had certainly forgotten a door or the trunk to lock. Sometimes you were just too lazy. Of course, that invites every thief. The invention and introduction of the central locking was a considerable relief for the user. At first, she limited herself to using the key. All doors were automatically locked when the driver's door was locked. In addition to the key, there has also been the possibility of being locked by a transmitter and even by a proximity sensor and their combinations for decades. In addition, signals such as pulse horns or the activation of hazard warning lights and driver's light, for status notification, were introduced. Even opening or closing using the mobile app, on the PC or on the tablet is currently widespread.
The central locking itself often consists of a small opening motor, a control unit and a transmitter, key or sensor for commanding. The normally closed motors are mounted in the doors to the lock and thus mechanically secure the closing and closing of the doors. The control unit receives the commands from the key, the transmitter or the sensor and controls the normally closed motors. The key, the transmitter or the sensor, gives the command to the control unit whether to open or close. The control unit is usually installed behind the dashboard or invisible in the footwell. There is no special place, in contrast to the normally closed motors.
What are the advantages of central locking?
The advantages of central locking are obvious. It is more convenient and safer to lock all doors at a distance, so nothing is forgotten. A combination with hazard lights or driver light, make the car easier to find in parking lots. A proximity sensor eliminates the hassle of searching for keys and makes opening easier, especially when your hands are full. New vehicles can even park at the push of a button on their own, drive into the garage and, if the law permits, even cover a long journey without any driver.
What is the disadvantage of central locking?
It is a technical product that can break. Then it's not just a door, it's all. Furthermore, it is not free, so a corresponding amount must be invested for purchase and installation. Another disadvantage is that when using transmitters, the transmission frequency can be read out and thus thieves can make use of them. In general, this technique is also considered a major vulnerability of modern vehicles. Everything that is electronically controlled can sooner or later be outsmarted by hackers.
What to look for when installing a central locking?
It is important that high-quality components are used to have a reliable locking system. Furthermore, ensure the correct electrical connection and avoid short circuits.
