Re: Added remote garage door button to centre console

Agreed. Thanks so much for the write up on this.

I will be attempting at some point, hopefully soon-ish.

*Would really like for it to be a lit LED button too, but that may take some more work...

Great idea, thanks for the post. What I like about this idea is that only you would know what that button is for.

Re: Added remote garage door button to centre console

A friend had a similar “special” button in his car. One night someone broke into the car, and accidentally knocked it.
The button was hooked up to a massive air horn. They shit themselves, everyone woke up and ran out as they were getting away empty handed, expect for the skid marks.

I could see that being a great theft deterrent, especially if you labeled the button "start", disguised as a push button starter.

That is actually what will go in the other side of the cluster. I have the air-horn already. Just need to get around to fitting it. Had one in my old car and loved it

It's on the garage shelf next to the 9 foot stainless steel whip and fuzzy dice.

Re: Added remote garage door button to centre console

I had used this hack idea a few years back on my motorcycle.

Great job on documenting your hack. Looks real good.
