I am assuming that you have at least power locks. Horizontal button on the front driver and passenger side doors to unlock and lock. If so, I believe you can go through the RAP module to control the door locks from your Bulldog module.

Here is a website for the RAP module. It has pinouts and the locations of all the wires you should need.

You will be successful going directly from the bulldog module to the lock/unlock relays in the rear quarter panel. There is also room there for the module / power close by. even though the instructions with the module say DON'T use "punch / fork type" connectors to connect to the existing wire (thru the insulation).... they worked fine for me.... :-)

The RAP module is the part that controls the door locks and even has the factory alarm disarm wire too. In my earlier post I have provided the pinout of the RAP module.

The RAP module behind the left rear quarter panel. There is a door with two twist locks. This is the same compartment that has the factory bottle jack. Here is a link that describes where the module is at.

The RAP module controls the alarm, remote entry, keyless pad entry, and etc. on the truck. So the RAP module does more than just the keyless pad entry. Do you know if you have the RAP module in the back quarter panel? The 1995 Explorer wiring diagram is very similar minus your 1998 may have the PATS system. But the wiring will be the same. Pink/Yellow is lock and Pink/Light Green is unlock. The reason I refer to the RAP module is it is a lot easier to tap into and avoid mistakes... Otherwise you have to remove the driver side kick panel and fish through the bundle of wires to tap into.

The 12Volt Link for a wiring schematic.

basically the "sam ting".... there is a wire for the "lock ground action" and wire for the "unlock ground action". the ground is put on as a result of the wireless signal from the remote being received by the "control module". You just need to connect those wires to one in the back quarter panel that run to each of the activation coils in the appropriate relay (ie. lock / unlock).

perhaps "we" don't understand.... but if you have the FORD RAP module in the quarter panel... you don't need to do any wiring, you just need the keyless remotes (fobs) and program them appropriately... check the "stickie" on this forum.
