drivers side lock

My 93 originally had a factory remote entry and i removed it for a whole new alarm system, the problem i have is there was driver priority unlock and with the factory unit in the trunk removed the new alarm doesnt unlock or lock the ds door, is there a wire to clip or jump to get this to work? before i track down some schematics.

should be right under the dash on drivers side. There are 2 wires. A blue one and a green one. One is the lock the other unlock. I dont remember which is which. But just pull back alittle of the covering on the wire. Get you a jumper wire, and touch one end to ground and the other to the wire. Your doors will either lock or unlock when you do this

Iv got the alarm hooked up to those wires and all the doors besides the drivers door lock and unlock fine the drivers side does nothing without the old box in the trunk hooked up, but when you put the old remote entry box back in it gets the new system confused and it locks and unlocks sparatically and sometimes not at all.

figured this one out in case anyone else has this problem, the grey wire is common between the drivers side lock and the others but the tan wire on the ds runs all the way to the back of the car to the old alarm box in the trunk, if you cut the tan wire that leads to the trunk splice it in with the other tan wire that leads to the lock relay under the ds kick panel. and they now all lock and unlock together.
