[DML] Re: door lock module diode D4

What I recommend is that instead of a manual resettable circuit
breaker (which is expensive and not available everywhere) you put a
fast-acting fuse in. 10 amps should do it but on some cars you have to
go up to 15, especially if you like to click the locks a lot or have a
remote. Definately replace the relays but you MUST fuse the input if
you are going to use the origional lock module. If the lock module
doesn't work or seems like it works sometimes, then you must also
rewind the locking solenoids in the doors because they are probably
burnt. In that case you will blow the 15 amp fuse quickly. That is a
sure way to confirm the solenoids are "cooked".
