I would love to hear that it can be done with a simple coding change. I'm a software dev and if I had footsteps to follow in that regard I'd probably try figuring it out. That would be so much more elegant than this ratchet mechanical pinball machine rig.I hope you can do a detailed DIY for this eventually. I reached out to the folks at Littco, after hearing that they managed to code it out. But they said they couldnt help me as I would have to take the car to them. They did say, the other people doing tunes will eventually figure it out. But I doubt any of the tuners will offer this just to avoid the whole legal thing. I grew up before they started doing this whole double safety stuff, and never took of in reverse or anything silly like that, I also ride motorcycles, go figure.
Nah, I wouldn't change a thing about your DIY. If you're going to take this project on, maybe don't be an idiot and forget to put it in neutral first? I guess that's too much to ask nowadays though.Sigh... Ok.
I was sure it's common knowledge among 3-pedal drivers not to ride the clutch or hold it down at stops, unless you like the added wear on TOBs, PPs and clutch cables/hydraulics.This!!!
Also don't hold the clutch in for 5 minutes waiting for your car to warm up...
Clutch in, check the transmission to ensure it's in neutral, start the car, then as soon as the engine is running clutch out.
I bought a cheap kit of like 100 magnets of all different sizes. When I do the DIY, I'll go over that and everything else. Figuring out which exact magnet(s) to use took a little while.Thanks for linking to the solenoid. I'll be ordering mine soon.
As for the magnets... It looks like they're small - 1/4" or so? What did you use, 6mm x 3mm magnets?
I'm curious what to buy, there's tons of kits/sizes/shapes/etc.
I'll try and start on it here soon.Subscribed.
Thank you for taking this challenge on. Looking forward to your detailed DIY to get this installed.
It's a pretty specific spot. My first tries with the magnet on stick approach were also total failures. Took a while to figure it out. Using VCDS or obd11 to monitor the sensors while you move the magnet around is almost mandatory. Though I think it could work following my instructions (when I write them) even without that. It'll make a lot more sense where you're shooting for when I put up the pics and vid I have.I got one of those magnets on a stick I was gonna try to shove up in there and see if I could get it to start with that. I didn't spend much time with it, but I couldn't even get it in the right place for it to work.
