    Re: RF atx startup/shutdown.

    There are soooo many ways to do RF ATX start up

    1 add a remote start, after remotestarting the car, it turns on the ACC which turns on the radio and therefore turns on your ATX computer

    2 If you have an aftermarket alarm, check if it has an AUX option output, if it does, check and see if it can be programed for latched output. If it CAN, install a SPDT relay to turn on your computer.

    3 If you have an aftermarket alarm, check if it has an AUX option output, if it does, check and see if it can be programed for latched output. If it CAN NOT, install a pulse to latch relay to turn on your computer

    4 If you have aftermarket keyless entry, check if it has an AUX option output, if it does, check and see if it can be programed for latched output. If it CAN, install a SPDT relay to turn on your computer.

    5 If you have aftermarket keyless entry, if it does, check and see if it can be programed for latched output. If it CAN NOT, install a pulse to latch relay to turn on your computer


    6 This one is a little hard. If you have factory keyless entry, you can locate the fac KLE module, then locate the lock and unlock wires. install a diode on each wire then install a pair of diodes to prevent back feed to a pulse to latch relay to turn on your computer

    7 This one is a little hard. If you have factory keyless entry, you can locate the fac KLE module then locate the trunk release wire install a pulse to latch relay to turn on your computer. Besure not to wire up the trunk release wire toward the trunk unless you want to pop your trunk while starting your computer.

    8 If you don't have any types of RF remote then buy the cheapest alarm you can find as long as it has either armed out, lock and unlock out, AUX out. Then follow the steps above to convert pulse to latch output to a shutdown controller to turn on your computer.

    9 If you have any types of keyless entry, I'm sure I can find a way to do RF ATX start up. Unless its a 02 trailblazer and the likes or Jeep Cherokee. All those can be done but when you activate the door lock system, it will either turn on or turn off your computer.

    If you're die hard on having RF ATX start I have 2 words for you "have fun"

    Thanks for the response and information. The problem is that my mission is not having to do any wiring. What I'd like to do is the exact module/kit I saw once posted here 2 years ago. It is an adapter that plugs inline with the ATX and has a little pack with a battery or two so that when the remote is pressed the module then trips the power sw wire, thus starting the computer.
