turbo timer problem

hope someone can help. have fitted a blitz FATT DC turbo timer with harness to my 2004 wrx but are having problems with the locking side of things. the whole idea of a turbo timer is to lock the car and walk away rite ? well i cant lock the car untill the timer has finished counting down thus defeating the object. any ideas.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Open the door
2. Push the lock button

That should work fine.

I had the same prob. with my wrx about a year ago ;-)

Cosmo,

Quick Q, the whole point of the HKS harness for the wrx is so that one can install a TT (say a blitz FATT DCIII) w/o any wire cutting/splicing what-so-ever, correct?

Subys won't lock with the remote if your key is in the ignition. With a turbo timer, your car still thinks there is a key in there so you have to lock it with the lock button.

You need to cut two wires to do that. One is in the keyless entry module right above the fusebox. It is a dark green wire with a black stripe. That allows the keyless remote to work while the car is running. The next is a grey wire in the security system module by the ebrake. That kills the shock sensor so your alarm doesn't go off when the car is running.

Or you can just lock the door with the power lock button as you are exiting the vehicle...

Once the motor stops running, the keyless entry will still work.

But the shock sensor might go off depending on how your car idles.
