This is a third part central locking unit - you really need to contact the supplier for fitting instructions. The only thing we may be able to help you with is a wiring diagram of the Central Locking system for your vehicle to help you fit it yourself.

We will need your VIN for the car to see if we have a diagram for you. Post it here and we will see what we have.

I really can't help you with the installation - I am not familiar with the PNI 288. if it was me, I would try and understand why my central locking is not working and attempt a repair to be honest.

Connecting any equipment to the vehicle has risks - and if you don't know what you are doing, I would leave it to an auto electrician as you could end up with the vehicle not starting....

Ok, can you explain in as much detail as you can (use Google translate if it helps) and somebody might be able to help with the issue.

Does the remote fob work?
Does the key open the driver or passenger door manually?

except for the cold periods, I have no problems with the closing working normally, but once the cold weather comes I cannot unlock the car because it freezes the lock, a neighbor told me to warm up with the key lighter to defrost the lock, the fault is that once the freezer cannot the key exchange in the hub, in the hot periods I have no problem
I want to install the module because I want to avoid this problem by inserting the key into the driver's door hub

Squirting some silicone oil spray into the key lock barrel should help protect it from freezing up.
