Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a problem with my remote control door lock receiver. I bought a new remote and i've looked everywhere in the car where the old one is located but no luck. Does anybody know where the receiver is or may be somebody has a diagram where it is located. Please help, thank you.

Have you checked the dash board between back seat and back window. Not sure about yours but have found some info on other models that are mounted in that area back there. Or even trunk area below that back dash board. I will keep looking?

Almost positive that's where its at. Look at the first picture. See how the dash appears to be over the wheel well. Your front dash is set back farther front front wheel well. Back dash is almost the same positioning over your back wheel well. Check that back dash area. I believe you will find it there. Hope this helps
