If you don't know what the "Ultimate Remote" is, I understand there are one or two references to it on the Club forum.
The modules have been completely re-designed in accordance with my basic specification by Duncan and David (thanks chaps) and have the following advantages over the previous version:-
They can be reliably used with both OEM and third party key fobs.
They have an extra function which automatically unlocks the doors when the ignition is completely switched off but NOT when just the engine is shut down. Something which a lot of people who have speed locking had wished Rover provided from day one
They can be used for standard closure and opening, or enhanced closure and opening, sometimes called full closure (windows and sun-roof, if fitted open and close). Powerfolds can be extended or retracted (if required) or the Full Monty which includes the auto unlock. You decide which functions you want.
The modules can be re-programmed by us if the firmware is modified at a later date (NEVER say never ). The firmware is locked so no dodgy devices will appear on fleabay.
Owners of earlier model cars (mark 1) who use a third party remote will be able to use it to remotely open the boot as well.
The modules will be supplied built and tested and housed in an enclosure. No kits of parts will be available.
Your car MUST have lazy vent and lazy lock enabled. This is a simple task for anybody with a T4 (Testbook version 4.Computer Diagnostic System) and is something which can be done gratis at nano-meets for example.
We will help and advise where possible but please bear in mind that we all have families, employment and other commitments
If you intend to use the powerfold function, the powerfold enabled switchpack requires a modification which can be quite daunting if you are inexperienced with soldering and / or don't have a fine tipped, precisely controlled soldering iron. Some members of this and other fora, including myself, are willing to do the job on an occasional basis if you are not keen or cannot find anybody local to do the job. If you make a mistake it is PERFECTLY POSSIBLE to wreck your switchpack.
The modified "how-to" should be available very shortly and as you will see, requires wires to be laid in from the glovebox void area out to the driver's door and through the centre console to the master central locking switch.
In addition, you will be modifying the wiring to your BCU (Body Control Unit). You need to be confident about doing so or get somebody who knows what they are doing to either do the job or assist. Again, plenty of willing (and free) help is available if you decide to do the job at a nano-meet.
If you intend to use a third party key-fob, it MUST have two available channels and the ability to send a momentary pulse output.
NO, they can't be used to remote start the car. Yes, I can do that but I'm not going to do so. It is potentially very dangerous, highly illegal, and I don't want death or injury on my conscience
This job, from start to finish can be done in a day IF you are experienced with wiring etc. I invented this mod and I have to say that I'd be working at a rapid rate to do the whole lot in a day, even having done lots of these installations in the past. Probably a good idea to get the preliminary wiring installed to the driver's door and centre console and have the switch-pack modified sometime before you intend to do the remainder of the installation, in which case the remainder can comfortably be done in a day. Half a day if you work balls-out.
Anything else I need to add? No. I don't believe so...
Oh, the price? £27 built tested and installed in an enclosure PLUS delivery, which will depend on whether you want to collect, courier, or post. The MINIMUM standard of posting will be recorded delivery.
Anybody want one?
