Hey Scott,

Seeing as I have installed an OEM alarm which added factory keyless entry as well which remote starter what would you recommend that I use for a remote starter? I'd like to continue to use the Toyota remotes.

I would also prefer to use home made neutral safety switch so that I don't have to perform a sequence of steps every time I park the car. Do you have any suggestions on the switch that I use as well?

On a side note I would like to install the TRD push button start as well down the line even if that means I have to put in my car and turn the car to on. Do you for see any issues having both remote start and push button start. Seem to me that you wouldn't but some of the wiring for the remote start and push button start may tie into some of the same locations.

Thank you for all the excellent help here on Yaris World!

To add remote start, whereby you can still use your Toyota remotes, I would recommend the Valet 561T (which allows you to use your door lock signal as the remote start trigger.)

For the neutral safety input, I haven't installed remote start on a standard. In doing a bit of web research on the topic I've seen people create things as simple as an array of springs surrounding the shift lever (so that a ground connection is made if the shift lever is moved out of the neutral position).

The push start shouldn't have an impact on the remote starter. They would indeed share some connection points.

Anyone ever try installing a Avital 4113 starter in a Yaris? This was the only one button starter I could find locally and I need it by Wednesday (girlfriend's birthday).

It's a DEI product, so it should be decent. I just read through the install guide for it and It should be very straight forward with my DIY.

Hi Scott, this starter has a couple of connections I couldn't match up using your install guide.

FACTORY ALARM DISARM
FACTORY REARM
(+) IGNITION OUT (TO ALARM)
(-) ACTIVATION INPUT

And where is the neutral safety switch connection? Or is that not needed because the motor wont start unless its in park or neutral? Thanks!

-Josh

Does your car have an alarm? If not those are not used, if it does and the alarm is the factory TVIP one, I can point you to those connections. If it is an aftermarket one, then you will have to refer to the documentation for the alarm.

A neutral safety switch would be used if you are installing a remote starter on a Yaris with a manual transmission. The Yaris doesn't have one, so as per my guide, you would need to purchase or create one that will work with the Yaris's shift.

Hi Scott, I found a wiring diagram that said:

Factory Alarm Arm arms with lock
Factory Alarm Disarm disarms with unlock

So I have that covered. The other two I'm still not sure about though.

For the (+) IGNITION OUT (TO ALARM) it says:

As an add-on car starter: If connected, disconnect the ignition/accessory
input of the remote controlled security or keyless entry system.
Connect the H1/3 YELLOW ignition output to the ignition/accessory
input of the remote controlled security or keyless entry system. The wire
will prevent the host system from sensing that the ignition is on during
remote start operation.

Should I use the "Disarm No Unlock use key sense wire" ? That requires a negative input not a positive input like this one outputs. Should I get a relay and wire it that way?

Also, the (-) ACTIVATION INPUT,

This input comes from the factory set to 1 activation pulse. This means
that it is necessary to have 1 ground pulse on the white/blue wire for
the remote start to activate or to deactivate. The same holds true for the
remote control activation when set to a two pulse setting it is necessary
to press the button twice for the remote start to activate or deactivate.

I can't quite figure out what that means. Would this input be used if you wanted to use the factory lock button? It has a little diagram about a Momentary switch so I really don't know what its talking about.

Whether the (+)Ignition out is required or not for yours will depend on the particular alarm that you are using. You didn't answer above, as to if it is the factory installed OEM one, or an aftermarket one.

The (-)Activation input is for triggering the remote starter from an existing remote.

The wiring diagram I found said the "Key Sense" wire is yellow on the ignition harness but the only yellow wire is the +12V? There is another yellow wire coming off the side of the ignition but its on a different plug.

OK. The TVIP OEM Alarm has a 36 pin connector:

TVIP Conn E.jpg


Pin 12 (white/light blue wire) goes to a starter cut relay, so you will need to follow that wire to the starter cut relay, and tap the Black Wire coming off of that relay with your start wire. On a non-alarm car that would be the black wires on the ignition switch connector.

Pin 9 (orange wire) is the ignition switch power input to the TVIP, so if it actually needs the (+) IGNITION OUT (TO ALARM) connection, that's where it would be done.


The key sense wire is the yellow wire on the two pin connector that is near the face of the keyswitch.
