Day two of installing an EasyGo smart key push to start system. Not rushing it and making sure all wires are well hidden and not going to be an issue later. Just have to connect a half dozen more wires and it will be complete.

Having a bit of trouble identifying the last few wires, I have two different wire lists and they list different wires and colors so I'm having to test and retest.

Need the following if anyone has them

Lock (-)
Unlock (-)
Door open (-)
Parking lights +)

Think those are the last ones. No luck and unlock inside the door though. Those two are the hardest to find actually.

Haven't decided if I'm going to try to get the remote start going. Should only need a clutch(-) connection but I'm thinking of adding a safety feature to prevent start in gear.

Let me know what what you do with that for the remote start. Mine in a manual car with remote start and I need to figure something out other than the parking brake.

Finished installing my EasyGo Smart Key Push to Start System

Works great, just wish finding all the wires were easier. Had to use 3 different wiring PDFs/Websites to get the job done and I had to actually use the color but different location to get the final wire correct.

So nice just having to walk up to the car, press the button on the door handle and climb in the car. Push the button and drive. Just going to take some time to remember there is no key to remove.

Have it set to quiet mode so no horn unless I try to lock with the door open or the alam goes off.

Bolts somehow wiggled loose. Nothing lock tight can't fix.

I found the plate that holds my shifter boot with a cross threaded bolt half crammed into the transmission. One bolt is missing altogether. There were two bolts horizontally holding the plate on. I guess the last person to work on the car assumed this to be acceptable.

If I was still in the auto business and a customer was to show that to me, I would find out who the technician was immediately. That technician would apologize to the customer personally.

I would most likely shake the tech's hand and tell them "Thank you for your service with me, but work like that is unacceptable. Please pack your things".

If I cannot trust you with four bolts, then what can I trust you with. If you are going to let this type of work, which you know will be seen, go out the door, what are you doing that isn't seen?

Bolts get lost. Threads get stripped. Those things happen. When they do happen, stop and repair the issue properly. You might lose out on a few dollars, but your integrity will take you farther than the half hour, hour, or even the day that seems lost.

Ok, my rant is over until I see the next crap job done.

What did you do with your Mustang today

I installed it at my shop. Everything was tight when I installed it. Somehow the bolts wiggled loose.

That's acceptable. Those things happen. I am willing to bet that none of those bolts were half inserted and cross threaded.

Nope. Threaded by hand then tighten with tools. Then triple checked. They were tight.

I had a similar issue with my old shifter. The stresses of constant driving and banging gears just worked them out over time. Put a dab of loctite on them and it did the trick for me.

Plan on it. But I'm under tornado warnings with sirens blazing. Touch down just a few miles from my house.

Yes. About 10-15 minutes north. They've increased the tornado warning for another 30 minutes.

My brother just moved to Clarksville a few days ago. We're from KC, so these tornado warnings are nothing new. Haha.

Yeah, every time I go out to fix it, another warning pops up or extends. Its getting annoying. Few more minutes then we should be good for a little. Go out there and get it done quick.
Doesn't help that my mom overreacts to anything tornado related.

That happened to me as well.

Speed limit used to be 50 on that road...

Mine was upsetting just for the fact I wasn't trying to speed. I was on my way to the park to go jogging with my wife, got an hour and half break from the baby thanks to Grandma. Cruising down a decently crowded Street a mini Cooper was actually passing me on the right when an undercover blacked out Dodge charger lit up ahead of me and pointed. I thought he was pointing at the mini but he chose the black 16' GT of course. Said I was doing 53 in a 40. Fun fun.
