    Really hope, some of you guys can help me out here.
    Problem: We installed a 98 wiring in a 95. Everything works so far.
    Everything but the remote. I can ground the cable and the remote works, but so does the rear parking lights.
    It's connector C402 on the remote keyless entry module, pin#5, black/white wire.
    It needs a "signal ground" and I can't find anything about it.
    This thing drives me crazy. Any idea, how I can fix that or what "signal ground" means and where to connect it?
    Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    I have a 95 FSM manual. It shows wiring diagrams, and includes the remote option for the 95's. When I get home, I'll be happy to flip through it and see if I can't figure out what you are referring to and what the issue may be. But I honestly don't know if it will apply to your 98 wiring (hopefully it's close).

    sounds like a bad keyless entry to me. I have seen issues with them before where they left the back lights on. A signal ground is just a ground but it sounds like the lights might have a short or something that is keeping them on as they seek voltage backwards through the keyless is my guess but trouble shooting electronics online isn't the easiest.
