Re: hotwiring an ea

put it in neutral and push. you wont have any steering though as the steering lock will go on. but you could jack up the front wheels with a trolly jack and use that for steering you will need a few people to give you a hand to move it this way.

Re: hotwiring an ea

just get the wires out of the igniton thingy and play with the wires joining them and all until the car starts

or try connecting the red (= positive) and black (= earth)wires and see what happens
i have never hotwired my ea before so i don't know any other way

Re: hotwiring an ea
