Default 98 Ram Keyless Entry (3/4 of the way there)

OKay...I got a keyless entry central timer module out of a 98 ram at the junkyard along with its keyfob and about a foot of harness out the white connector (which my truck does not have).

After looking at some diagrams in the manual, I felt like I knew what to do. And, I found the two wires from the module that control the locks.

Both the Orange/Blk and Pink/Blk wires coming out of the white connector on the box control the locks. So, I found the Orange/Purple and Pink/Purple wires under the kick panel that go to the locks and hooked the module into them.

They work great! However, one major flaw, when I have the keyless entry hooked up to the door locks, the electric lock switches in the truck don't work but the keyless does. When I unhook the keyless, they work, but, obviously the keyless does not.

I can't figure out why that is, or what I should be hooking the keyless entry wires up to. I have one wire that locks, and one that unlocks.

Also, when I hook it up this way, whenever I hit the keyless entry button, the locks are really slow and, if the door is open, my interior lights dim a lot.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm not real up on wiring diagrams, but, from what I can tell, I guess I hooked it up right? I don't know. But, the diagram mentions the orange/green and pink/green wires as being for the passenger's door, but, they do not have power going through them like the other two.

Someone please help...lol I feel like I'm just about there, but, not close enough. I mean, I have them working, just, not correctly...lol

After researching, I found that apparently they made the locks reverse polarity or something for use with the keyless entry, meaning you would need to get the switches and rewire my existing ones which I'm not going to do...haha.

So...oh well.
