Alientech

After reading about the Alientech window controller on the web I decided it would be a nice toy to have!

It lets you open and close the car windows from the remote - not an essential feature I know, but I think it's cool.

It works using combinations of presses on the remote buttons as follows:

UNLOCK - UNLOCK - UNLOCK -> Unlocks all doors and ROLLDOWNS the windows.

UNLOCK - LOCK ->Locks all doors and ROLLUP all windows and sunroof. 

UNLOCK - LOCK - UNLOCK -> Locks all doors and ROLLUP sunroof and VENTS windows. 

Extremely useful links were:

MK IV Jetta Alientech fitting guide - This was fantastic - detailed photos of how to remove the door panel without damage!
http://cars.packetradio.co.uk/octavia/alientech.htm - This was also incredibly useful as it contains the correct wiring colours for the Octavia

Update:
The packetradio link above is dead so here are the correct wiring details for the Octavia:

Alientech Car (solid colour/trace colour)
Green Black/yellow
Black Yellow/black
Blue Brown
Yellow White/yellow
White Brown/yellow
Orange Grey/red
Red Grey/black

Here's the copy of the original page on the Alientech site: clicky

And the door went back together with no problems :-)
