Applied +12vTyphoon90: Did you ground the connector or apply +12v?
Don't worry, I'm sure car thieves aren't clamouring to steal sub $3k cars to rebirth, for parts or even to joyride!Interesting though this may be, it might not be in our best interests to have it out there.
yeah but they'd still have to bypass the steering lock, and if they going to do that these cars are just as easy do .... you know right from the ignition.Interesting though this may be, it might not be in our best interests to have it out there.
I agree, the more vague we keep it the better...yeah but they'd still have to bypass the steering lock, and if they going to do that these cars are just as easy do .... you know right from the ignition.
I just wouldn't mention any keys words that someone would use to learn how to .... you know one of our cars.
I was testing the cold start injector system, ignition was on. Easy enough to jump 12v to the relay packs in the engine bay if you were desperate though.Even if it started, I don't understand how it keeps running without ignition power. Without the key in there should not be any power to stuff like the fuel pump and whatnot. Unless the electronics on this car have been bodged...
Yeah, and you knew how to do that before I posted it.Okay, so except for the key in the ignition this hack is "no key" then. Gotcha.
You're just sending 12V to the starter solenoid via the TTS connector. Basically you've re-invented the remote starter switch. $8 at the auto parts store.
No, because there's a better way. I can do the same thing at the place that was designed for it (and without removing a plug from the injection system)
There's a junction box on the firewall with a plastic cover. IIRC, one side has a +12V stud and the other side has the wires that go to the starter solenoid. You jumper across these to crank the starter: connect one clip of your starter switch to the +12 side, one clip to the starter side, and you're good to go.
Anyway, the main issue is that you posted this as "no keys" when, in fact, you had the keys in the ignition and the ignition on. Bit of a difference there, no? If you look at the posts above, you'll see that this incorrectly had people worried that this would start and run the car without the keys, and thus was a potential theft risk.
If you have the ignition turned on in *any* car, you can start it by sending +12 to the starter solenoid. That's all you did, just backwards through the wire to the TTS.
