Question keyless entry w/ turbo timer

Hey,
I just installed a greddy turbo timer in my car, now i have all the **** hooked up right, but i couldnt figure out how to make it so when the car is timing down, i can lock my doors from the remote. NOTE: this is not a factory alarm. its a keyless entry system. There has to be some wire i can clip so that i can time my car and still make use of the remote.... any help i know im being a nub.... :disco

I'm interested in almost the same thing. When I warm up my car in the morning and lock it, I always have to use a spare key to unlock it because the remote won't work while the car is running.

Dont take it the wrong way, but why did you waste the money on a turbo timer?

dont take it the wrong way but obviously ur a newb.... first off a turbo timer can lenghten the life of a turbo since it lets the internals cool down.. if you just shut ur car off after mobbing it, the oil can turn into muck plus the bearings will wear out quicker... not only that but it has a built in voltemeter, and other cool features that i like...

ahem...

that would be correct, but...

Quote:
The heat contained in the turbo charger will begin to vaporize the coolant at the turbo charger after the engine is stopped. This hot vapor will then enter the coolant reservoir tank which is the highest point of the coolant system. At the same time the vapor exits the turbo charger, coolant supplied from the right bank cylinder head flows into the turbo. This action cools the turbo charger down. This process will continue until the vaporizing action in the turbo charger has stopped or cooled down."

ok - so i have ver2 sti (see sidebar) and don't think your little theory applies for my turbo and I also have keyless thats not working with my TT.

I know there is a wire somehwere - but in all the threads I found on a search it was on the 5th page and not very clear. (Just like this one will be...)

BWAHAHAHAHAAAAA, i didnt even have to come back here to have the noobie owned. Someone else did it for me.

I was being serious when i asked you to not take it the wrong way. Turbo timers are essentially USELESS on a wrx with stock turbo. I was not trying to be a jerk about it, i was just curious as to why you bought one. I would have hoped with as much information is available on this site you would have looked into it here before going out and buying one, or at least started a new thread and asked about it. Might have saved you quite a few dollars if you had.

For your information, i own 2 turbo vehicles. my WRX, and a 240sx with a redtop sr20det swap. One of the first things i had installed along with the new motor was a turbo timer. The sr20 motor runs HOT, and the turbo is oil cooled. The way I drive my cars, i would be buying new turbos every other oil change if i didnt have one installed on it. On the WRX, since its water cooled, you can just turn it off and walk away, the cooling system does all the work on its own without needing the engine to run and waste gas.

If you bought the turbo timer for all the little "extras" thats cool too, i use the volt meter on mine from time to time, but how often do you really need to know the exact voltage in your car? If it starts, its obviously got enough juice, and you dont really need a volt meter to tell you if your alternators gone bad or battery has died...

So again, i sincerely apologze for offending you by asking you why you wasted your money on the turbo timer. Next time ill just be an ******* myself and call you a NOOB right from the start for buying something thats pretty much useless.

respectfully,

does your 20g have oil & water lines? if it has water lines your turbo timer is basically useless. if not then it isnt. and *** is with all the scooby newbies trying to pwn each other?

Ok - do not cut the green wire w blk. I did this as instructed on scoobymods and it works to lock the doors and turn on the alarm when the TT is still running.

BUT....

When you go to unlock the door it unlocks, key starts up the car. But the alarm is still on! meaning that the shock sensor is still active - found that out by driving around and the alatm starts going off. You have to turn the car off (TT off too) and then use the remote to lock and then unlock(disarm) the car and then start up again.

Well I am up for suggestions!

Emnm79 already answered what your asking in his post. Vaporization process, similar to the way you would distill water.

But, i was curious if you were running both water and oil cooled on your 20g? I was taking to my dsm buddy and he said that the 20g comes with oil only or oil/water cooled cartridges. This is where i will admit to asking the "noob" question if BOTH can be used at the same time if it has the oil/water center section, if you actually use both or just have the option to use one or the other.

Either way, if you are using the water cooled 20g and no oil is going thru your turbo to worry about, maybe it still would be best to just remove the turbo timer or at least not use it on a regular basis, and just turn it back on for the days that you really work the car and would feel better about letting it cool down.

I dont know what the color is but my best guess if you were to cut a wire to let the keyless work when the engine was running would be whatever wire carries the engine running signal to the keyless entry control under the steering shroud. Since you dont have the alarm you wont have to worry about the shock sensor tripping when the engine shuts down.

Sounds like you need a remote starter, rather than a turbo timer. Dont even need to go out to your car to start it up and doors stay locked until you get to your car and unlock them. And, pretty much all remote starter kits include a relay to disable your alarm system if you have one so it doesnt go off when the engine starts...

Im starting to see now the frustration of the older members of this board. Its not that people don earch but its when they go through all that trouble to post their findings and explainations and have people keep asking. Please use the search function.

Its not MY mod. Its the mod that everyone else does if they want their keyless entry to work when Tubo Timer is on.
