Has anyone got a META alarm on their car and had a turbo timer successfully integrated ?

I spoke to a local alarm 'specialist' and they were a bit noncommittal regarding whether they could get the alarm and TT to work together properly.

A friend also had his Impreza into the same shop to fit a Blitz TT. When he got it back, they hadn't integrated it correctly so he can't plip the alarm and leave the TT to shut down the car.

If this is the best they can manage, I don't see the point.

Oh - and before anyone starts, I know its an offence to leave a car unattended on a public road with the motor running

Hi

I talked about this with a local specialist. He said the Meta alarm systems are very good. He said that they have the possibility or that the possibility can be added of having the fuel/ignition cut function delayed. It's just a matter of one wire.

If the people you went to see cant do it, it's because they dont know their job. I can wire an alarm to my car myself. Anybody can. A specialist is someone who has a complete understanding of the product an can work around minor difficulties such as delaying the fuel ignition cut for a few minutes.

If you cannot find a specialist, I will ask them again what exactly it was that had to be done.

Aye, Claudius, I agree with you 100%

I put the word specialist in parentheses to make the point that although the advertise themselves as specialists, they don't appear to know their business very well.

Its an interesting point you raise about the META systems - cheers ! I'm going to look into this and I'll report back whatever I find out.

White II - another good point ! - anyone looked into this ?

Re: The insurance aspect

A couple of times when getting quotes I've been asked if the tt is operational. I wouldn't imagine they'd be too happy to find a tt that works when the car is locked if they recoverd your car after being stolen.

I was in the same boat as you when I got my car, after 3 attempts the installer got the tt working with my GT alarm. Even then it would go off occasionally, the fan cutting in/out or vibration picked up by the ultrasonics seemed to be the most likely suspects.

I've now disconnected it as I prefer to do it manually (no sniggering at the back there!).

I am an auto electrian from New Zealand and spend most of my time working on jap imports.
A turbo timer can be fitted to most alarms easy as, simpy by connecting the ignition feed to the alarm in before the T/Timer and fitting a diode to prevent it feeding back.
The only problems you will have is if the shock sensor is too sensitive, or your alarm has a fuel or ignition cut instead of a starter cut, but even these can be by-passed with relay,s
by someone who know's what they are doing.
P.S Sold my EVO 1 to buy a house, Saved up again and now looking at an EVO 4 !!
