I am trying to install an electric door opener for my shaved doors. The kit comes with pathetic (partial) instructions. I have googled relays/solenoids/auto door locks and have found about 6 different ways to hook up and three different ways to wire the relays! None of them seem to work. I can get the solenoid to open through direct wiring with the push button (interior) but not with the key fob. I believe something is messed up in the relay wiring. Anyone out here good with relay wiring?

Hello Lee,

I am no Journeyman Auto Electrician, but struggle through with first trying to understand the basic circuit. If I wire it up I make a drawing of the wiring as a visual aid. Post one up and maybe someone on here will be able to further help.

The remote needs to be recognized. Output signal? Reciever? Battery? A good Alarm guy could maybe help you out. Hope it's something simple. Good Hunting Lee!

I will take pics of the relays tonight, the model number of the control unit to open doors and instructions that came with kit and 2 of the best diagrams I have found online to wire it. Some diagrams have the two relays wired together and some don't (don't know if that is an issue). Also on most diagrams there are two 12+ inputs into the relay, one output to the solenoid and one input from the control unit but every set of instructions I have name different tabs on the relays for the two 12 volt inputs.

I guess my first question would be how to tell if this is a negative ground trigger or positive ground trigger system and I would assume that would determine how the relay is wired.

Those instructions are very vague and didn't seem to work

Here are several instructions that seemed more detailed but not working either:
