|Gonzos Wrangler||Very nice!!!|

|i_am_montes||In a good way of course.|

|i_am_montes||That's pretty unique.|

|sparky||This only works on power locks. Standard key entry is mechanical.|

|Freiburg||Is there an easy way to do this with a Wrangler Sport, or jeep without power door locks? Like Ruby Tuesday said earlier could you just wire it to the door lock switch?|

But you could have just bought a hitch safe. I have had one for years and it has, arguably, been the best add on I have gotten.

^ Our Sebring won't open the trunk with the inside trunk release button unless the key is in the ignition and on ACC or RUN. It's a safety lockout because it's a convertible.
Back to the Jeep - I like this idea, it's a nice project, not sure if I'd do it - yet...

|thetman||this is the same guy who has pressurized water hookup on the side of his Jeep and a tablet mounted in the front.|

Ive thought of this and will probably add this functionality in the future!
|09-03-2013 08:08 PM|
|flipmeover||Awesome project! This is more like something I expect to see on hack-a-day than WF. Since you're already using an ardunio, have you considered adding some additional functionality? I can't think of anything real useful of the top of my head, but there's got to be some things you could add with different codes. Maybe turn on auxiliary lights with a 2 minute shut off or trigger a 5 sec window roll up sequence. Don't know how truly useful if it would be, but if you have the power, why not use it . Again, great work!|

well done man.
This just popped up on my youtube account, front page being subscribed to you when do did your tank mod.

|donmeca2020||A+ for effort and style. i honestly doubt i have that kind of know how to do something like this with out messing up a key FOB and also screwing up a hole that is drilled into my vehicle. lol|

|EdsJunk||Yes, its a soft top, but just because you can get into the jeep, doesnt mean the jeep wont alarm. Also, I have a a secured cargo area that can be securly locked when the tailgate is locked.. so this also helps me there.|

|ohioviper||Cool idea but with a soft top isnt this kind of a waste of time ? Its kind of like getting locked out of your car with the windows down.|
|09-03-2013 06:52 PM|
Well done. Any part numbers and instructions you would like to share?
|09-03-2013 06:29 PM|
|Wsttimes0||I think your rig deserves a full build thread. I would like to know what the other plug above the key pad is. As well as this tank in the back. Does this Jeep transform into a camper or what? Got a slide out on the other side? By the looks of the rear and your ingenuity with the keypad, I bet you have several hidden gems in that rig. I am intrigued. Nice work on the pad.|

|09-03-2013 01:44 AM|
|Batjeep09||Nice mod. Looks clean as well. I do have a question though. So how does this work with no doors or top on? Just messing with ya.|
|09-03-2013 01:01 AM|
|unusedusername||Is the keypad waterproof?|
|09-03-2013 12:33 AM|
|MRT2||Very Cool and Innovative.|
|09-02-2013 11:15 PM|
|Lowerumble||This was good thinking. Why does only ford offer this from the factory? Chevy makes me call onstar all the time. When the fords get locked, we just use the key code...|
|09-02-2013 11:14 PM|
|NFRs2000NYC||If you can make this thing reasonably priced, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. However, I would love it even more if you used gunvault style buttons (fingertip code) and have the keypad hidden somewhere. Nevertheless, awesome mod, and very smart. Kudos brother.|
|09-02-2013 11:13 PM|
Awesome idea! I have wanted to do this to my JKU since I got it. I have a Ford Five Hundred with the keypad entry and miss it DEARLY! Loved just being able to lock my keys in the car and not carry them around with me!
I had read a few articles about using the micro controller to facilitate the interface but came to the same conclusion that you did... That it would have to be jacked into a key fob to make it work correctly.
The reason for this is the security system in the Jeeps. I could be wrong about this, but from what I've read, locking the doors with the door switches won't activate the security system. And unlocking them with the door switches while the system active with set it off.
I'm thinking of doing something similar, but want to eliminate the need to cut a button panel into my door. Might try something with some kind of prox sensor or maybe small photo cells that I can mount on the inside of my windshield. (It's an idea anyhow)
Again, good job!
