Re: Ha! I just made a coast/neutral button!

Need male and female of the orange plug on the module under the rear seat.

But I usually see if one of the manufactures I deal with has them available before going that route.

It would be good to know if they have them though.

Also, this will not fix a vehicle stuck in park.

The cable physically makes it so the car can't move.

Electrically tricking the car into thinking it's in neutral won't disengage that physical "lock".

Re: Ha! I just made a coast/neutral button!

The pics I took aren't very detailed. But I'll take more pics later. So far first harness manufacturer doesn't have that plug available to them, but they are looking for it. I haven't priced it from mits (if it's even available) but it's probably extremely expensive that way. A tiny 2 pin plug for a...

Actually, looks like the paddle shifters go on the column and not the wheel.

Hmm.

Re: Ha! I just made a coast/neutral button!

My 12 doesn't have the silver panels. It's solid grey and 1 pc. Nothing removeable :( So I am looking for a wheel off a lancer to see about a transplant. Plus I would like the audio controls in the wheel for when I upgrade to a DDin head unit. Hoping to find one with shift paddles to see if I can ma...

Re: Ha! I just made a coast/neutral button!

The current draw is minimal. Just the coils of a couple of relays. Maybe 60-80ma total. The steering wheel switches would handle it directly without any fuss. Other than the fact they are multiplexed.... So would just build a very basic circuit to "pick" the button you wanted to use. Then ...

Ha! I just made a coast/neutral button!

I used to be concentrating on regen. But after reading here I switched more to coasting. I like E/B modes, but it makes it more difficult to switch to neutral to coast. So, I made a switch that switches to neutral from any gear! The switch drives a couple of relays. When not pressed, life is normal....
