HOW TO INSTALL A REMOTE CONTROLLED ACCESSORIES SWITCH IN YOUR CAR

Control Lighting, Horns, or anything else you can think of, remotely!

In this video I complete my Demon Eyes installation by wiring them up to the MX5 with a remotely controlled switch. The switch is active at all times, meaning I can turn the lights (or any other accessory I connect) on and off any time i want from up to about 100m away, even when the car is off. COOL!

This same switch can be used to control just about any accessory you like. This particular module handles up to 5A of current, but you could always use it to trigger an auxiliary relay that handles more current if you needed to. Remote horn, anyone?

PARTS USED:

Remote controlled latching Relay Module

20A JOWX Connector T-Type

15A Wire

7mm heatshrink

2x Spade Connectors

In line fuse cartridge with 5A Fuse

2x 2 pin connectors (from any auto or electronics store)

  • Could be useful, but remember it might not be as secure as your locking mechanism. Most of these relays don't have any form of security built in. Maybe someone will just turn your lights on to mess with you.
