Remote door lock/unlock

Has anyone tapped into the cab power remote door lock system to work something in the bed of the truck to lock and unlock when you hit the key fob remote?

If so, where did you tap in?


'05 F250 KR CC SWB
Mini Maxx
4" SS turbo back
AFE Stage II
EGR bypassed
Viper 5901
Train horns - of course !
Tool box, interior lights, & metal bed cover combo
'10 Tailgate with step
'08 Tail lights
'11 Rear bumper

Classic quote by Snake "Both of you should sell your trucks and buy imports with lots of stickers, big fart can mufflers, and a rear wing as tall as you can find. You'll fit in well with that crowd."

It wouldn't be done with the factory lock/unlock. It would be done through your Viper alarm. There are outputs that the alarm has when the system is disarmed(unlocked.) You would need to wire a relay to that output to have it control whatever you want.

link to instructions for your alarm:
