    Turbo timers and alarms...

    Is it possible to get your alarm Toad but preferably a Clifford to activate and de-activate your turbo timer? So basically turbo timer running with alarm still activated or part of alarm working??

    Could do with alarms that have this built in as standard or as a add on if poss please

    mat im pretty sure clifford do the turbo timer in one of thier systems, sextons tried selling me one when i had my turbo timer fitted, if i remember rightly its a manual type timer, which is set for 1min i think or something along those lines, it locks the doors and arms the alarm whilst the timer is on aswell so they told me

    the toad ai606 has a built in turbo timer.... just need to find a fitter that can work out how to do it... A friend has managed it, you preset the time into the module then hit button 3 before you take out the keys. also button 4 will cancel the timer too.

    I think I have sussed how to do a 60 second run on timer for the Astra Turbo, without any visible timer controller etc.

    From what I calculate it will be about £90 for the unit with fitting instruction

    It's not that hard to work out when you think of how the standard timers are wired into the car. I am gonna build a prototype when I get time (so probably about 2006!) and test it on a willing volunteers car. If it works, it would allow the allotted 60 second rundown that Vauxhall recommend for a stock car.

    I am gonna make an interlocked unit for my car to run the engine with the keys out (like the Police have) for shows, so that will tie in with the turbo timer development
