Ignition code scheme
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
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!
