I just finished up installing my RFID setup in my Fiero, and it is working perfectly! I got a lot of comments about this in my build thread, and in person. Now that I know what all is involved, and what is needed, I was wondering if anyone else would be interested in a complete kit to install this feature on their Fiero. This could also be used to unlock the doors or the trunk pretty easily.The kit would come with:
- RFID receiver and 2 key fobs (Can add up to 20)
- 10a Relay
- Electric solenoid (To physically pull the cable)
- Wiring and plugs
- Detailed instructions with diagrams
Here is a quick video of it in action:
Basically the RFID box and relay go behind the "B" pillar behind the drives seat. I ran the antenna behind the speaker so it is just behind the quarter window. The solenoid itself goes behind the air canister. There is one wire with a crimped spade on it, that would be supplied, to run to a spot that is open on the fuse box (Unless you have added something there already), and simply plugs in. As you can see from the video, I just installed a self tapping screw into the frame behind the "B" pillar for the ground instead of running additional wiring.
The solenoid could be relocated behind the "B" pillar instead of in the engine bay. I am pretty sure there is enough room. Also the location of the antenna can be changed. However the antenna has to be within about 12" of the RFID box.
I was thinking the kit would cost roughly $65 shipped inside the continental US, other location would need to have additional postage charges.
Does this seem like something anyone would want? Comments, suggestions, ideas, both positive and negative welcome!
