How to use remote while key is in ignition Finally, no more reaching!
Posted 16 August 2005 - 12:49 PM
Anyway, there are two wires that let the keyless entry know when to stop working. One is from the ignition telling it that the car is on and the other is from the ignition key switch telling it that the key is in the ignition. Remove these two and you're in business. The ignition wire is yellow while the ignition switch wire is red and white. They are #'s 16 and 13 respectively in the diagram below:
I've figured out a clean way to remove the whole wire with the terminal without cutting, but it's kinda hard to explain so I won't bother. Of course, you can always cut these wires and it will work just fine as well. Just make sure you insulate the cut real well.
BTW, I take no responsability for anybody blowing up there car or voiding their warranty. Do this at your own descretion. Oh, and don't push the trunk open key while you're moving :D

It was more of a light comment than a warning. I'm sure the wind would keep the trunk down. I've driven with open trunks before with no problems. The only bad thing is that you can't get out and shut it if you're on the highway and you accidentally press it :D

Add some stiffer springs and you have an instant Air Brake!
Now, disengaging the air brake is quite a different story. :)
But in all seriousness, I've had my S for less than a week and this will be my first mod, so thanks for the post! :)

I did not do this mod but like JimmyB posted, it came as a very welcome surprise when I got my aftermarket alarm installed.
Now, if my glovebox is locked I can still open the trunk. This is very useful when you are picking up a passenger, the car is running and they have a large bag or something that needs to go in the trunk. I would previously have to shut the engine off, remove the key so I could unlock the glovebox and press the trunk release....wait, in my car I Modifried that so the key has to be in the ignition for that circuit to work....so unlock the glovebox, put the key back in and set to ACC or START so I could unlock the trunk or with the key still out of the ignition press the trunk release key on the key fob and pop the trunk and then put the key back in the ignition and start the car. Neither is an elegant procedure or solution.....
In any case, I love being able to unlock the trunk from the key fob at any time whether the key is in the ignition or not or whether the glove box is locked or not.

It was originally posted almost 2 years ago and didn't have many responses. It was dead an buried in the thread graveyard until webmasterino found it and brought it back to life.
Now it has several people who think it is a worth while mod, me included. I'm going to do it this afternoon.

for example in the top-down-while-driving mod, the speed monitor for the top makes sense cuz if you really don't want to be opening/closing the top at anything higher than low speeds.

however, it did not work for me. disconnecting wires 13 and 16 did nothing. it is probably because i have the factory alarm system... so now i have to get back under the dash and reconnect the wiring.

In a panic stop situation, it will open-up very suddenly.
