Installed Alarm, but No LOCKS! GRR
So I finally got my alarm installed last weekend (the nustart base model, no remote start, just remote alarm with shockguard and loud a$$ siren). Bestbuy here in montreal did it for me. I also payed them an extra $160 to get my 2 doors to unlock with the alarm (actuators were included in the price) cuz i have a base model and I wanted to have remote entry with the alarm. So total was like $350 with install of all that. So guy at bestbuy tells me it's not guaranteed that they can install the door actuators for remote entry. I said 'well, my door panel is big i don't see why it would be a problem' he said 'probably not'. So I get a call in the afternoon and guys ays car is done. I'm happy, and I ask if the actuators fit properly in the door. says 'nope' with satisfaction and ime like 'wtf' he gives me the story that they fit fine, but there's no place to mount them or something. I was like 'you can't find any solution to this?'. he then tells me he doesnt see how is possible. So i was kinda pissed, got my money back for the actuators and install, but now I have to disarm the alarm via remote then manually open the doors.
I don't see how a bestbuy installer who does this all day couldnt suggest some kind of solution or find a way to do it. Kinda pisses me off, i payed good money for this to be done and he cant do it, now i gotta go find someone else who is competent enough to do it.
Anyone on here have actuators(door pumps) installed and if so was there any problems like this? cuz i want this done and i have no idea who can do this for me...i just want it done at a reasonable price. I'm sure i could do it myself but it's snowy and cold here and i have no place in my garage, and so it's easier for me to just have someone do it, also cuz i want an install guarantee and warranty for the door pumps too.
