350Z LS1 swap questions

Hey Guys,

I just picked up a 2003 350Z with an LS1 swap.

I have a few issues I want to resolve:

1. The remote central locking does not appear to work.

When I press the unlock button the car doesn't unlock (the indicators do not flash either).

I have replaced the batteries on both FOB's and have tried to re-program them to the car but the attempts did not work.

Can anyone suggest what I could do to try diagnose what in particular isn't working in the remote system.

2. The swap came without A/C however I have read it is possible.

If I purchase a 350Z compressor + a custom bracket to mount to the LS1 motor as well as getting custom tubing created - what other issues will need to be address to get aircon installed?

3. The RPM gauge was never hooked up or is just not working - is this possible to wire up or is an aftermarket gauge required?

Thanks for your replies guys it will be much appreciated.

Welcome Ryan- congrats on your purchase of a hybrid Z. Did the previous owner give you any details on the LT1 swap? Specifically, did the conversion include a way to get the factory BCM, ABS and NATS system to actually function? Many conversions simply disable these factory systems and allow the engine to function with only the most basic systems.

That's why the factory locking system (which is incorporated in the BCM) and tach don't function. Getting them back won't be cheap or easy, but understanding how this conversion was done is the first step. For a custom a/c unit, I think you'd be better off taking it to a specialist shop and having them give you an estimate of what it'd take.
