Does doing any of this work void or cause any problems with the warranty on the cars? I have a 2015 Nissan Versa S with automatic transmission and I really want to add power locks (power windows dont really matter to me), a center console, and a spoiler. I didnt know if these woudl cause any problems.

I'm working on adding power locks to my car and this how-to is super helpful. Thanks for taking the time to do it. I have a couple more questions.

1. Can you take a picture of the boot you made. I was looking through parts to see if I could just get the rubber boot that was empty, but it looks like you have to buy the whole wiring harness for the rear door $65 for each door = $130 (and I paid $50 for the keyless kit!). How did you bond the corrugated tubing to the factory boot cover (rubber cement, epoxy, etc.?).

2. Where did you get the red wire? Did you cut into the ignition harness? I was thinking of just using one of these fuse taps Accelevision FT-MICROATC Pre-wired Low Profile Mini Fuse Tap on an unused circuit (like the heated seats or push-to-start) that seem to be giving me constant 13 volts).

3. It would be interesting to see how you routed the wires to the passenger side? Did you run them back on the firewall or on the front part by the panel.

Thanks!

Hey guys I'll do a remote start write up. I did a neutral safety switch writeup but it wasn't approved I guess. OMG PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you're not going to do the special handshake to activate your remote start PLEASE install a neutral safety switch. It's really easy. You need 2 springs one forward one in the back. You need a relay. Ground out your shifter and put positive to the springs. When you put it into gear you complete the circuit and the relay switches to deactivate the remote start. Basically this is what I did https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cwCnCES5r8

Great write up lizardversa! got all my materials together but have a few ?'s. where did you find and tap into the parking light wire so they would flash when you lock and unlock doors?
where did you find and tap into a constant 12v for the keyless module? thanks

When you finished installing the power door locks, did you put the plastic film over the door interior? From your pictures, you did not re-attach the plastic film back onto the door.

Normally the film is attached to the door interior with the black goop. However, I took off the plastic film from the door interior and, when I tried to re-attach it, it wouldn't stick back onto the door interior; it seems that the black goop is a one-time-use adhesive. I would need to apply new adhesive or sealant to re-attach the film to the door.

I bought an aftermarket power door lock kit from amazon.com. When I opened the box, there was only one mounting bracket and no remote controls. Before I return this for a refund, I wanted to know if the mounting brackets are necessary to attach the actuators to the door. The main picture on the item description page shows only two mounting brackets but the item description states that the kit should include "a complete set of accessories for installation."

In your experience, are the mounting brackets necessary? I wonder if I can just attach the actuator to the door directly instead of using a mounting bracket. If the brackets are not needed, then I will go ahead and install this kit.

Please disregard this post (Post #19) and see Post #18 above. I didn't realize I double posted.

Turns out I don't need the mounting brackets. I found some extra L-shaped brackets from furniture that I bought from Ikea and straightened them. I also used extra mounting brackets from the power window kit for mounting the door lock actuators to the door.

I've installed the power window motors and door lock actuators to the front passenger door and the two rear doors. I still need to install the motor and actuator in the driver's door, run the wiring to each door, and then connect the wiring to the correct wires in the car dash.
