01 keyless module in 00- no go?

I just tried to put an 01 keyless entry module (part# 88035FC150) into my 00 L. Mounting the unit was no problem, it easily replaced the door lock timer. The PROBLEM is that I can't find the 16 pin harness that plugs into the module.

A 6 pin harness plugs into the door lock timer. Apparently on the 01-02 models there is a 6 pin to 16 pin extension harness that connects to the door lock timer. This extension is discarded leaving a 16 pin harness to plug into the keyless entry module.

My 00 doesn't have this extension (or I can't find it) it only has a 6 pin harness that plugs into the door lock timer. I was hoping to do this without splicing. I'm curious how the 00 code alarm modules are installed...do they use the 6 pin harness? I would appreciate any ideas you have to make this work or any info on wiring similarities and differences between the 01 and 00 systems.

I'm having the same issue. Did you manage to get the keyless module installed?

Widowmaker: The 6 pin harness is plugged into the door lock timer higher up under the driver's side dash. The door lock timer is mounted on a bracket which is secured to the panel frame by two 10mm nuts. I haven't plugged into anything (that's my problem).

lesteague:
I haven't made any real progress towards actually using the module. I have come across a few wiring diagrams showing which wire goes where, but the bottom line is...you will have to splice.

Another thing- you will need to track down a wiring harness from an 01 (maybe 02) to make this work. These years had the harness routed from the factory. The 00's don't. You would have to do some calling around as this part is not normally taken out for resale. A few places said that if they have them it would be $35 + shipping to go and cut it out of the car.

What I did find in my 00 is a 10 pin harness. Looks like this might connect to the code alarm harness used in 00's. I found mine under the dash taped along the OBD 2 connector, which is connected to the dash panel. This 10 pin harness has a dummy plug with a jumper wire connected to it. I'm assuming that this is across the leads going to the driver door lock actuator and the actuator going to all other passenger doors (for progressive unlock/driver door priority unlock). I haven't taken the meter to any wires yet, but their colors support my hunch.

I'll probably just install an aftermarket system and try to sell this module and remote to someone looking for an easy plug and play keyless entry in their 01-02... any takers?. Anyway, hope this helped.

Odd, I plugged an OEM keyless entry unit into my 98. Took 10 minutes and I did it in the snow on Christmas Morning.

A year later I took it out, sold it, and installed my Clifford alarm.

Oh, and yes that is the correct harness. You unplug the jumper harness and plug that into the keyless module. At least that's what I had to do in mine.

Did you put an 01 keyless module (alpine) in your 98 or did you put in a 98-00 keyless module (code alarm)? I was talking about trying to make an 01 module work in my 00. It would be awesome if this would work easily.

do you guys have pics of where the plugs are? i recently bought the module ending in AS100 but the install manuals online that i could find were for the one that ended in the FS100 number..

the keyless unit i bought had spliced wires at the end of the plug...

Widowmaker - I'll get a picture tonight of the plugs and up load it. Do you remember which module you installed in your 98 (Alpine or Code alarm)?

5HT - Just so happens that I have the 16 pin connector harness with the keyless module, a long with the remote. I wonder if it is possible to splice the existing 6-pin to mate with the 16-pin harness?

Just so happens I recently came across a 01 forester that I'm using for parts. I'm doing a complete interior change. My FS has the Tan/Beige interior which I'm swapping to a grey interior (if you know any one that want's tan or beige interior parts let me know).

5HT - email sent asking if you would like to sell your keyless entry module. I need it for my 2002 Forester. There is another post from a member selling his security upgrade module, but I only want the keyless entry, and dont need the full alarm. I am not sure if with the security upgrade module I could ONLY use the keyless entry without wiring up the rest of it (shock sensor, horn..etc), so I would prefer just a regular keyless entry module.

Thanks
