Looking into Keyless Entry systems...

Hi All

Since our wonderful winter has happened in the L. Mainland of BC, my well-worn outside locks will hardly even open...I've bent a few cheap keys, and even my ignition lock is so worn, I have to often re-insert the key a few times to get the thing going. It all started when the car was stolen about 6 years ago and the locks were jimmied and it's just gone from bad to worse since then.

It's quite hilarious - we couldn't unlock either door the other day, but the back hatch was fine, so my daughter climbed in the back and unlocked the doors from the inside!

The car is quite old and parts supplies (especially for the body) are drying up or are prohibitively expensive...I think door locks will cost something like $200 each side and that's without installation!

So, I though - ahah! A solution would be to install a keyless entry system and remote starter - I'm hoping to get away with paying only $250 for an installed system.

My car:

1992 Nissan NX2000, power locks, power windows, no T tops, stock Cassette stereo , no previous alarm. 300,000km! I don't really care about an alarm, except for maybe overnight. As you can kind of guess, there's nothing to steal but the car itself. I was wondering about getting an immobilizer...and then this lock thing happened.

Is this feasible? Yeah, I know That's not gonna happen! Had it since new.

Yes, I would say it should be feasible. In my area you can normally get a starter with keyless entry for somewhere around $250. There are strictly keyless entry systems out there, but you might as well spring for the starter at the same time.

I say find a cheap alarm and try to install it yourself.

I got a remote starter/alarm from Canadian Tire for xmas that sold for $99. A few weeks later it was on sale again for $49.99.

Installing it into your car should be fairly easy
