Wiring and door locks and ignition?

HI, I just bought my first 91 4 door civic sedan dx. It was built to be a race car. Interior was gutted.


My passenger and driver's back door locks dont work from the outside, only inside

Are locks hard to work on? Maybe find locks at a nearby junk yard?

Onto the wiring.... the window wipers aren't wired in.
Antenna above driver's door has no atenna. how can I fix this?

My fogs, front blinkers and LEDs are all not wired in as well.

Where can I feed the wires and where do the wires plug into?

My ignition was placed on the left side of the wheel and has a small slim hole that is on a plastic disc with a zip tye across the hole that any key or screwdriver can start the car.

(Will have pics soon to give you all a visual standpoint. )

I am new to these cars and I would appreciate me if this community can help me out.  Very Happy

The locks are easy enough, the handles can be tricky though. Id recommend trialling it a few times at a wrecking yard before doing it on your own car.

Well the wipers will depend on what has been left, for example, have they removed the motor but left the plugs/wires? Worst case is that you'll have to find where in the harness they've cut the wires, and extend them back to the motor. Does it still have the indicator/wiper stalks?

The antenna unscrews off the roof, and you can feed a new one down the pillar (take off the interior A pillar trim to pull it through).

Again, try finding what wiring is left and extend it back to the lights. LEDs...? Maybe leave those unconnected  Smile

It's probably going to be best to get a new harness from a wrecker, take the fuse box and associated harnesses. It'll take ages, but in the long run you'll be better off.

i know there's three thick wires that come off the  back of the ignition barrel that head toward the fuse box. Hopefully it's just a matter of finding where they've been stashed, installing a new ignition barrel and reconnecting those wires.
