Default Door lock actuator

Hi everybody. Thanks for letting me join fordrangersforum. I need help. I'm installing a viper 3305v keyless entry truck alarm on my 1999 ford ranger. My ranger has no power locks or power windows from factory. I need help I want to have keyless entry. So I found door lock acturators from a 2001 ford ranger xlt a installed it on my 99 ranger. Can I just connect my viper direct to the actuators, I don't need the lock switches. Just want keyless entry. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks

Yes, but theres more involved than just connecting the viper system to the actautors. Theres a couple different kinds of actuators, 2 wire or 3 wire. I had 2 wire actuators from a GM and put them in my 93. Basically from the viper control box, it goes into a group of relays to switch polarities for lock/unlock. Then the relays have an output. For 2 wire actuators its 4 relays total. That gives output for one actuator, but Im running both on one output with no issues. I couldnt tell you how to wire the relays as my dad sat down and figured that out, but it looks hard. Im sure theres a wiring diagram on google

Just so you're aware, those actuators do get weak over time. My 2000 has power locks, but the actuators aren't powerful enough to unlock the doors so I still have to use my key.

Aftermarket actuators are much cheaper and easier to replace

I'm gonna install aftermarket actuators in my truck. I don't have anything power and gonna put in aftermarket actuators when I get my compustar alarm, I have a viper and it's garbage I hate it. I'm not gonna have any switches for the doors just hook them to the alarm. And they are cheap if they die I'll buy another set.
