Bypassing smart lock for remote start

Hey,

I have a mate who is installing an alarm for me with remote start as one of the options (remote start is free as part of the alarm its a full feature pager alarm).

I need to know how to bypass the smart lock the alarm has got a negative output for when remote start is active to bypass imibilsors but i need to know what pins i need to attack.

I understand the people may not want to pass on how to imibilise it to the wolrd please PM me if thats the case.

EF xr6 - standard options.

Friend note - i am kinda impressed with smart lock with out a wiring diagram its tricky to work out .,..

I realise this may look dodgy for a low post count asking to bypass an imobilisor but with now manuals i need help PM me for the need of proof eg PICs of car or something.

Re: Bypassing smart lock for remote start

You could whack a second ignition barrel with a permanent key up under the dash somewhere for a really quick and dodgy fix

Re: Bypassing smart lock for remote start

Psycho Chicken, why would it be. I have remote starting in my EA, and I use it all the time. I find it especially useful in the morning, as I can start the car whilst I'm getting ready, removing the need to wait in my car for it to warm up.

Re: Bypassing smart lock for remote start

I think the way it went, according to my instructor at work;

A few years back someone had a car rigged up with remote start. He thought it would be a bit of a laugh to start it as his brother walked in front of the car. Forgot the car was in gear and the handbrake was off. Car moved forward, pinned his brother against a wall, then stalled. Remote start was programmed to attempt to start 6 times. Started 5 more times, stalled each time before it gave up. Kinda did some damage to his brother.

At least that's what I was told.

Re: Bypassing smart lock for remote start

Yeah would be because of safety reasons.

But really do you need remote start, it seems like a real wank feature to me. "Hey look ma, I can start the car while not being in it".

As for warming the car up, EB's onwards are all multi point full injected! They are ready to go as soon as you put the key in.

Re: Bypassing smart lock for remote start

erm, warming up? like moving the oils about (a little) and warming the engine up in temperature takes a little more than the first turn...

anyway, abandoned the idea, a little more research uncovered that is is virtually impossible to do...

Re: Bypassing smart lock for remote start

Hey i was the one installing it. i have it in my tx3 turbo is a nice feature but i have put in a switch on the gearbox to make sure its in nutueral or it wount start. After playing around with smart look i could only see a way to do it that would SEVERLY make the car unsafe, eg bypassing it perminantly.

There are 3 options as i could figure out
By pass it perminatnly
Spend lots of cash for a module and hide it well
not have remote start .

And as for ready to go when you turn the key ... its always a good idea to warm up ANY car, all the oil sinks to the bottem and it takes a little bit to get pushed up to the top, also a cold morning dam its nice hopping into a warm car!
