Remote locking range

Hi, hope you can help, as it says the distance it works at is poor, so have read up about attaching an antenna to the receiver unit, but cannot find the correct place on the circuit board to solder wire to. Its a RHD 2001 WJ 4 litre. Thanks

Re: Remote locking range

Welcome to the garage.
There should already be a short antenna wire soldered to the board. Its not there anymore?

Re: Remote locking range

If the antenna wire is not there, then there most probably is written "AI" on the circuit board where the antenna should attach to.
Here in attachment a picture how it is on a ZJ, just as an example.
Since your jeep is RHD, the remote receiver should be in the left door module i believe.

Re: Remote locking range

yes, have got the stage with the printed circuit out, but it doesn't look quite like the one in the picture, and there isn't a A1 label on it, and no flying Ariel lead.

Re: Remote locking range

I have never seen a RHD WJ, so could it be that it is on the other side door module?

Re: Remote locking range

It is at least the module with the receiver. Didn't you find a piece of wire under in the door? You most probably will have to remove the circuit board from the housing and check the other side of the board.

Re: Remote locking range

Its quite a bit out of focus, but i wonder if the circuit on the lower side, which runs to the left side of the board, is not part of the antenna circuit. How does the solder look like at the end? Maybe could make a closeup picture of it?

Re: Remote locking range

I did suspect that, but its not actually connected to anything, I did solder a 12" wire to it anyhow, but made no difference.
