This is a demo of my RFID activated push start on my 1986 Toyota 4Runner. Also attached is an outside shot because this truck has been a constant project and labor of love.
looks really nice and works flawlessly.
Can you share more information about the build?
Which “Push Button” did you use? How did you connect it?
I also want to open and start my Van, so I can just forget my keys.
So the push button is one I ordered on Amazon. I ordered two. They’re both basically the same thing. They’re very simple devices, electronically speaking. The one I linked is the one installed currently. I also ordered a replacement ignition harness for my truck so I could make a pigtail and plug it in directly to the truck-side harness. I cut the harness in half and wired the plug to the box. That way I have a clean install and I don’t have to butcher any harness. If I ever have an issue I can just plug in the keyed-harness, reinstall the ignition tumbler, and use the key.
Keep in mind, this is a non-fob vehicle. It’s all analog and I leave the top off of it year round. I don’t lock my doors because there is literally no reason to/no increase in physical security by doing so.
