  • Ignition code scheme

    Hello guys,
    I want to fit an ignition code platform in my car. The idea is when you input the right combination (for examlpe 4 digits) in the right order, the circuit opens and the power is given to the ignition coil of the car. Is that possible and where can I find such a scheme to do that?
    Thanks in advance.

    its possible, but i dont know if there is a kit available for such a thing. What happens if your key pad dies? or a digit gets stuck or doesnt work? What kind of car do you drive that you need such a thing? If your worried about theft, chances are if they want it bad enough, theyll just tow it away... I think someones been watching too much Transporter...

      Subaru Wrx's are fitted with such a system. I can't tell you which year models or whether it's standalone or intergrated with the alarm/immobiliser, but perhaps it's something you can look into.

      Here in Australia, Jaycar sell a self contained security keypad system designed for entry doors etc, but I'm sure it could be adapted to a car. It runs off 12 volts DC and outputs between 0-12v Ac or DC. take a look here

        I don't think the idea is to completely get a rid of the key ignition, but to add a key pad with it. Or at least that would be the best way to do it.

        It's for sure possible, but I don't know where you would start to get a reliable and realistic solution. I suppose NiSlo's suggestion would be a good starting place

          Hm...

          Well, Nislo's suggestion is great, but I'm in Europe and it's a little away from me. The problem with me is that I would like to make it myself this code system. If there is a site in the net you know for schemes, that would be great!

            Its made by brant (In AUS at least) and many of the old models in aussie rexys were recalled because of malfunctioning touchpads FYI!
