I want to drive a relay depending on whether or not my 1999 B5 is locked or unlocked, or in more plain English,

If the car is locked I want a relay to power of a signal
If the car is unloacked i want the relay to open for a signal

(the other way around is also OK :) )

But where in the B5 can I find a signal that goes high/low depending on whether the car is locked/unlocked?

Latching Relay

I´m not sure what a latching relay translates to in Danish, but as i understand it, the unlock/lock signals only hold for approx. 1-2 seconds, so I need a relay that eventhough the high signal disappears (2 seconds after lock/unlocking), it will still hold the "leg" of the relay?

Such a relay type exists?
