You've installed a Code Alarm system with a remote door lock/unlock feature, but your car didn't come equipped with power door locks. Code Alarm's DA2 door lock actuator offers a heavy duty solution for cars that use cable-driven locking systems — wire a DA2 door lock actuator to each of your manual car door locks, and you'll be able to lock and unlock your car doors automatically with your Code Alarm remote.

Each actuator comes with a backstrap, push arm, screws, speed clips, and mounting hardware. You'll need one actuator for each door you'd like to control. Warranty: 30 days.

Important: If you know how to use a multimeter and have experience working with your vehicle's electrical system, you should be able to install this car security equipment. If you're unfamiliar with installing car security equipment, please speak to one of our Advisors before attempting this installation.

Horrible Quality

Written by: Oren from Seattle, WA on January 4, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These actuators are flat out horrible quality material and practically don't work. I got them installed by professional installers and when testing 2 out, they rattled and shook aggressively, barely even locking/unlocking the doors. The installer told me if they are already working like this, they will die very quickly, potentially locking me in my car. Do Not Prchase This Product!!



2005 Honda Civic: Manual locks to power locks.

Written by: Joseph from Idaho on April 22, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Recently installed security system into 2005 Honda Civic, decided to also install power locks. Car is manual in every way so this was a little bit of a hassle but well worth it.

Pros: Fairly simple system to use. Had to get a few other products to complete the process and there were very few tutorials out there but Crutchfield customer service knows exactly what they are talking about. They ensured that I ordered the right parts.

Cons: This isn't really a con, just a warning to anyone attempting the same. The system works by attaching two brackets; one to hold the actuator and another to keep the locking cable in place so the actuator rod can switch the lock. This Honda has 3 layers of insulation over the cable, two plastic layers and one metal coil in-between. It is a fairly tedious process involving a small metal saw held in hand and straight edge razors. Be sure to follow wiring diagram.

Product Research


Overview: The Code-Alarm DA-2 power door lock actuator can provide a power door lock to a door that has a manual lock. The DA-2 has a built-in slip clutch, so when used with the door lock cable bracket (item number 220CLBK, sold separately) it's also compatible with cable type factory door locks. The actuator responds to electrical signals from the alarm or keyless entry system and physically moves the vehicle's door locking rod to a locked or unlocked position. One DA-2 actuator will be needed for each door you want to control. If the alarm or keyless entry system you are installing does not have built-in door lock relays, you must add a door lock relay pack (item number 220DLRKP, sold separately) or two SPDT relays (item number 120E5000, sold separately).

Installation: The DA-2 should be installed behind the door panel in a location that won't inhibit window movement or door panel replacement.

Honestly any alarm with remote locks will work. I used the low end Code Alarm. Locks/Unlocks well. [ Victor  Aug 04, 2015 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The CA 1053 would work well with those Actuators. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Aug 03, 2015 ]  Staff
