Love the work, but it seems prohibitive if you're pickup trucking it like Crashy I. Not that I don't approve of that.

I'm just lazy. I don't like cranking windows or turning keys in locks. No matter what I do with her, the front doors will remain intact, so the power kits will be handy. The hatch is still TBD, but for now I like being lazy.

why would you want to put all of this on a rally car?

She will not actually be a rally race car, but that's kind of the overall look I am headed for.

street usable rally car? also known as a wifey mobile that she can, if necessary, take in an emergency off road trip. Or for you the occasional off road trip to enjoy the car.

Mine wasn't intermittent. In my case the wire had a resistance of almost 3K ohms, which was enough to prevent the horn relay coil from energizing.

With yours being intermittent, it may actually be a damaged wire in the spiral cable. Try holding the horn on, while rotating the wheel from side to side. If it cuts in and out, then the spiral cable is the culprit.

Tonight I did some troubleshooting, but was assuming that the issue was a broken wire in the spiral cable. The actual problem turned out to be that the wire between the horn switch and the spiral cable was damaged when the airbag deployed. It wasn't visibly damaged, so I didn't notice it when I replaced the airbag.

So, since I am the person who's name is synonymous with Yaris cruise control, I figured the simplest fix would be to install cruise control on her. (Since the OEM cruise control stalks that I sell have the wiring harness attached with the integrated horn wire).
I absolutely love when u use something not working as an excuse to upgrade an entire system i.e. horn not working so I'm getting cruise control...not the first time I've seen u do that between crashy 1 & 2 and I just had to let u know how awesome it is lol.

Much to my wife's chagrin, I use that same theory with everything that I work on.

I'm in shock. So amazing!!! Will Crashy 2 be a convertible of sorts like the Soulster and the Sidekick? If not, isn't the power package implant in danger of shorting out?
