  1. the lock is not a issue, renaults have used solenoid locks for years. If the power failed, the lock just would not lock, in the same way the centeral locking doesn't just lock when power is removed. IT was a general quiry really, I have a s2000 button on another of my cars & for this one I wanted something that is less obvious, when I read about what it also did I quite like the idea.
  2. Hi guys, I'm thinking of attempting to 'retro fit' a start button from the Toyota range, like this one: I understand the function is similar to: Normally there is no light on the starter button (1). Press it once or twice and you get the typical ignition I or II positions and the light glows amber (2). Press the clutch and the light glows green (3), the start button will then start the car. I plan on using a output from the immobiliser to unlock the steering collumn & enable the ignition to be turned on (using the above method) via a timed relay so that if the button is not pressed/or the engine not started the immobiliser relocks everything. My question is this; are there any wiring diagrams available for the start/stop button system? Or a pinout of the button itself? I'm not really bothered which Toyota the diagrams come from as i suspect they all use a similar system? Many thanks R
  3. This site is top notch - if you own a mk2. A better forum for mk1 owners is here: http://www.mr2oc.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=2 Sorry lads, but its true :)

    Speedo Question

    I'm having a play on a new project for the Mk1 Mr2 and have a hit a problem that could scupper the whole thing. I need to convert the speedo to run electronicaly. I have noticed that the speedo cable just screws into the gearbox. Can I just unscrew that and screw a 'converter' into its place? If so can I get the part off another Toyota? & will it be a single cable that runs from it to the speedo (thats what I need)? oh, and will it make a differeance to the speed that is being dispayed? Thanks Ross

    Service Parts

    where's the best place to buy from, I usally use Linco or Partco who do you recommend?
  10. going to be really contraversial here, it's actually not that good if your a mk1 owner, in my opinon. I have found a better forum but its not UK based. - Sorry But hey I still come back because I enjoy the content etc. Probably will return more once I buy the celica im after.
  11. Why not, just to be different, mount the beesting in the middle of the engine cover - Lotus Elise stylee :D
  12. Only during the summer. Use a Citroen ZX for a winter car, going to be upgraded to a Toyota Celica GT4 ST205 when I can afford it! yeay!
  13. Anyone know the dimentions of this engine & gearbox? And the size of the subframe it sits on. Removing one out if a MK1 and need to know if it'll fit down a allyway!! Cheers Ross

    Gran Turismo 4

  16. I reckon they look really nice, have a six speed box too don't they? Shame they don't do it as a 3 door tho,think it would look better proportioned
  17. why do one of you T-Total your cars?? Loads of people about = busy road + spinning Mr = Expensive insurance bill? right?
  18. thats what I've read, I'll probably be buying a import anyways. Just can't find alot of info for them on the web.....
  19. I'm thinking of getting another car & in the runnings are: Nissan Pulsar GTiR Evo 5 Scooby Celica GT4 I currantly have a Mk1 Mr2 which i want to keep as a summer car. We have quite bad winters here so I would like a 4x4 to keep the car under as much control as possable hense the above list. I first thought that the GT4 was too much like a sports car & I alreddy have one of those & didn't want another, but then I saw one & my opionon has changed. What are they like to drive? what options are there on them? any good websites?
  20. & would you class it as a sports car or a coupe?

    Wicked New Stereo

    you'll probably find that its the Jap's doing what they do best. There will be all the right loom, and you just need to plug the switch / relay / etc in and it works. What i'm trying to say is that they fit a loom with all the plugs, even if there not connected to anything - does that make sense?? I'm going to be fitting my VDO Headunit and (considering the lack of space) my VDO In-Dash changer into the two DIN's, what wiring problems can I exepect? The old Headunit sounds shockingly bad! (I don't think it has those sub things under the seats)
