Re: Figuring out how to disable the noisemaker

Now to figure out how to unlock the doors when you put it in park.. heh

I find it incredibly annoying to automatically be locked in the car. Twice a day I get out to get the mail and twice a day I pull on the handle and the door doesn't open. Better yet, I should look to see if there is a discrete signal that triggers the lock when you get to a speed, or if the lock module picks it up off the can bus...

Ok, I'll be sure to ask for help if I need it. So just to be clear, we want the TR-7 white wire to be open when not triggered, grounded when it is, not passing the 12v... And that all we need to do is ground pin 5 not pass it voltage? So if it works as expected, connecting the white to pin 5 should work. If the white wire does pass voltage, we'll need a relay in there... Ya?

Sounds right to me.

Geek, yes, that's right.

As for automatic locks, start a new thread and I'll contribute.

By the way, here are my favorite wire taps. They make little female connections when crimped onto the wire:

Then you put these on the end of the connecting wire:

and then just plug the thing in!

please for the love of all things electrical, don't use these things. Sorry nate but I have to dissagree with you. I've seen this type of connection partially fail so many times it's not funny. And it's really annoying trying to track down an intermitten or marginal connection.

Hmmm ... I don't remember doing that. It opens automatically when I switch off the car.

Right. But he's saying just put in park for a moment while you hop out to check the mail and you're still locked in. It is a tad annoying, but not enough to really bother me.

Turbo, what is your connector preference? Other than an OEM connector, of course...
