Outside push button security


Recommended Posts

We own an 04 Dynasty with the outside push button pad to lock the entry door or lock the bays. We don't know too much on where to look for the control module. I know the reset is under the passenger cup holder. There doesn't seem to be any power getting to the outside pad. Fuse is good under the driver side outside bay. Can anyone point us in the right direction on where to look for the control box? Thx

Do you mean the center of the dashboard. I know about the wires beneath the passenger cup holder. There is NO power to these wires. I need to find the control module....

Is that black box that has the red button hanging off the side?

Yes....the red button is for programming the personal pass-codes.

The dash on our 2002 has a main one in front of the driver and a center one that faces in-between the two seats. Our control and red button is located behind the center console in that general area.

Mine is inside the dash compartment in front of the stirring wheel 05 Dynasty

Thanks Harley,  I've checked the access panel and couldn't find anything. Maybe it's missing altogether!?

I have to remove the panel holding the gauge cluster to access the afore mentioned black box with red button. That's the unit you're looking for.

It sounds like you have an Essex keyless entry system. The Essex keypad by the door is a stand-alone unit. The locking and unlocking functions are all inside the keypad itself, not in some ‘external control module’. 
There’s also going to be a Wireless module for the keyfob behind the dash. 
However, the Wieless module does not ‘control’ the the Essex keypad. The two systems are completely separate except for grounding the same coach relays that power the lock actuators. 
Check the keypad wiring under the arm rest if you think it’s not getting power. I think the Essex website has a wiring diagram. There’s pos and neg, and then several other wires that the unit connects to ground in order to actuate a lock circuit. 
Cheers
