Hi!

I have ordered this for fun:
https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/bQCCPmbA

And instead of tapping into the lock/Unlock trigger from the buttons on the driver side i want to use the same trigger as my keyfob, because then i wont need to wire up the blinkers and interior light when locking and unlocking. Where do i find this signal? At the ccm? If so what pins/colors? And is the trigger negative?

I don't normally respond to posts like this, mostly because I don't have the answer on how to hook it up.

But I got to say this, I read EVERY review. Of all the reviews only (2) are from the US and the only thing it says "Ali Express Standard Shipping".
Most of the other ones say, "works great, tested on bench" or some other derivative of being tested but not installed.
Sounds sketchy at best.

Why not just stick with the key fob, you have to carry it with you anyways?
I'm not understanding what this gains you other than if installed then you have to have the key fob AND your cell just to leave the garage.

Fun maybe fun but with these cars I thinking adding something like this is not a good idea. Adding additional electronics (an unknown black box) just doesn't sit well with me knowing these cars are sensitive as they are with their electronics. Then the cheap cost is another red flag to me.

As AndreasPassat mentioned it looks sketchy at best. I would just use your Fob. You are still going to have to have your fob in your hand to start the car.

Thanks for answering the ccm question, that's everything i wanted to know.

I am still going to install this, maybe not going to use it as much, but still.
Had great luck with other chinese mods, some of them(Links under)
Auto headlight(In eu cars it turns the instrument lights on, plus have follow me home function)
Passat W8 dome light mod(Fit & finish perfect, easy wiring)
Door courtesy led laser logo (Maybe gimmicky, but looks cool)
These have been in my car for 2-3 years, no problem whatsoever, just mount it properly.

++ More stuff, but this wasn't even the subject.
