My favorite rendering so far. Looking great.
Perhaps, but I've not done that yet. I have seen some folks use those earlier 3 button remotes on later cars designed to work with the integrated key. I would assume you can go the other direction and use a newer remote with the older vehicle.Any chance early models can use the later style remote ? I would love to have it integrated with the key
Fair question.My 2012 TTSE keys are like ryanCA's key but can I ask the question. What is the $88 "upgrade" exactly.?
I use the OEM gasket inside the remote and use a similar method for sealing. That said, my material is slightly more porous than the OEM injection molded plastic. I haven't run waterproof/water resistance tests, but I could give that a try on this design.I'd be interested in getting this for regular old highlander fob. This may be a dumb question, but I didn't see it mentioned. Is this waterproofed? It would be amazing if it was enough to slip inside a wetsuit (surfing not diving) or something. Just want to be sure it would have a membrane of sorts.
I think a lot of it has to do with the quality of the plastic. I've cracked open somewhere between 50-100 in the last few years. They are not all equal. Some snap right away (brittle), while others are gummy and flexible and have to be cut/torn open. Unfortunately (or fortunately for my business, I suppose) the ones that don't crack easily are the ones that you can feel flex in the ignition. Not enough to freak people out, but enough that you can tell the YotaMD or transponder keys are more solid.Very good, I wish you luck. In 40+ years of driving I have never had a key fail. I have had the lock fail to where a key can be removed while the engine is running. I think as long as you don't hang a ton of keys from your key ring usually nothing goes wrong.
