Hook up remote starter switch

Obviously, I don't hook up the remote starter switch directly across the starter terminals that would melt the switch! So can someone tell me.

On newer vehicles I don't think you can do much of anything with these types of setups besides cause problems. They're pretty old school, no computer type tools. Indy , Aug 29, Thanks for reply, burning my hand and wearing plastic doesn't sound all that great. Apr 24, Member: Male New Tripoli Pa Vehicle: What is your end game here?? I gotta say it has been years since I last saw mine buried in the tool box no doubt I hooked mine positive side of the battery and the starter solenoid.

Adjust valves align timing marks etc. Wyoming09 , Aug 30, I honestly don't have a end game. I just saw this at harbor freight and thought was interesting. Double Taco Jon , Aug 31, Jan 27, Member: As for connecting to the big starter post for the power supply to the remote switch and the possibility of draining a battery over time, that post should be de-energized by the battery switch.

I'm not certain but I expect the draw from the indicator light is so low as to be insignificant over a daysail or weekend. I'll reinforce the caution by others about leaving the ignition on without the engine running. An excellent preventative for this is the oil and temp alarm system. With the ignition on and the engine not running a buzzer sounds to remind you, a side benefit beyond what's intended. It's the gift that keeps on givin'. I didn't even think about using the switch to turn the engine over without starting..

It is a simple switch that is closed when the trigger is pressed and open when not. I have a hand crank that I used to turn the engine for valve adjustment, getting to TDC, etc. The hand crank is not to start the engine. The remote starter would only be used when I want to check compression, or some other brief test when I want to be below went is starts.

So--do I have it right that I do not need to disconnect anything? That buzzer will help me remember! How is my wiring not sufficient--I did not understand this from Neil: Hotflash, if this is something you are going to leave mounted as mine is you don't want an indicator light that draws power constantly.

In my set up I draw power from the "battery at the selonoid" not from the ignition. I can spin the engine anytime I want as long as the battery ies turned on.

The engine will not start unless I turn on the ignition. When I remove my plugs for inspection after every cruise I spray a spritz of WD in the plug holes and give the starter a brief spin to spread the WD evenly throughout the cylinders and valves. Hotflash, just for an idea of my set here is a fairly recent pic of my 42 year old beastie.

Re your switch, what is it you want to do with it? Mary, you are using it exactly as I do. If you actually want to start the motor, but be down below to observe as Dave N. My starter trigger is just a couple cheap alligator clips on the end.. I do not leave mine connected to the starter when I am done using it.

Welcome to Tacoma World!

Bu is there a way to wire in the "on" switch from the cockpit so you dont have to 1. When we turn our keyed ignition to "on" only, noy yet all the way over to atually start the engine, our electric fuel pump comes on. I would expect this to be the correct sequence, but none of the above comments made any reference to the electric fuel pump coming on and bringing gas to the engine or at least ready to supply more if already primed. Seems that this would be important to know so there aren't any fuel-related surprises when the igition switch is only turned to "on".
