Yeah but doesn't the MID use the VSS signal from the ECU? When you shut off your engine doesn't the MID lose contact with the ECU for a second or two until you key back on? Or does your ECU have constant power as well?
My MID is wired directly to the VSS. Since I put the vss in there I got to do it however I pleased, so that's how it goes. Anyway, I think the ecu gets power with the engine off, it just semi-shuts down.
My effort was to attempt to be able to turn off the engine, without messing with my ignition key, since it is wayyy to easy to turn the key off, lock up the steering and all of that business.
Remove the steering wheel lock. I did this years ago for Honda-Challenge rules and I don't miss it at ALL. There have been plenty of times that I didn't have my keys on my, but wanted to push the car somewhere. =)
