Hi fellow Owners,

I am searching for an advice, how to permanently disable the super lock option on a 98 GEMS EU-LHD Vehicle, if that matters (afaik there are different door look sets, somewhere wires have to be cut - in the doors and at the BECM, know You might know, why I ask for a 2nd and 3rd opinion, before moving the cutter ...).
There are threads in the web around, but they refer to different models or years.

Thanks in advance
KCR

Snip the Orange/Pink wire from the front door outstation to the latch on both front doors. For the rears, snip the same Orange/Pink wires inside the door where they go to the latch. Insulate both cut ends to prevent them from shorting to ground as that might cause other problems.

Hi Richard,

thanks with this info, I´ll go ahead.
As far as I know most circuits on the P38 are switched by grounding? But insulation would have been a good idea anyway ...

Annette ... what are recovery doorlocks? Is this a autocorrect bug and You wrote Discovery?

I´ll search for pink / orange and pink wires. I´ll will have a look a f t e r w a r d s with the diagnostic equipment and see, if it switches the auto lock ... or maybe give it a test, with dooryards removed and doors open. Definitely not with everything in place ...

Thanks a lot!

KCR

Superlock is only scary if there is another fault. I use it on mine all the time and have never had a problem.

So, you are saying that it is possible to have more than one fault at a time on a P-38? 8-0=
Say it ain't so!

Seriously though, I will be getting into the doors on the Borrego soon for lube, connector cleaning and general maintainance, and wish to permanently disable super lock as well. I have had the aforementioned "Multiple failures" on my 02 and it was "interesting" recovering from them!

So, will I be looking for the same coloured wires on an NAS 02? (I shall search RAVE as well....)
Cheers!

I think what he means is, on earlier models maybe they used discovery locks, I’m sure I’ve read that the early discovery door handles are the same aswell

Yup, looking at the ETM, that is something that didn't change, so Orange/Pink wires on a Thor too.

Just did it today and worked pretty easy.
Usefull tools were a set of doorcard removal tools and spare door card fasteners, as some always decide to snap ;-)

Richard, I would usually fully agree to Your Point of view, just in the case of superlock I ´d rather cut wires than being „outlocked“ in the worst case.

But the information You provided was very helpful, thanks a lot! On my 98 (VIN WA) it was orange / pink.
