Hi there. Can you help me with the diagram of delay relay? I’m also using Passive Keyless Entry (different brand) and I really need help with the diagram to the ignition switch.Hi,
I'm currently working on an old 1977 classic mini project and am installing an Easyguard Push start button system as per this link https://www.amazon.com/EASYGUARD-EC009-K-L-Remote-keyless-Warning/dp/B07GZBS6N1
The Easyguard unit has a max cranking time of 3s when the push start is pressed to start the engine. With the mini being an older vehicle there will be situations where the cranking time would need to be extended. For this I have been suggested to use a 12v timer delay off relay module which can be viewed here https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32858839271.html
The module incorporates an potentiometer which would allow me to adjust the cranking time to between 1-25s.
My concern is that the car may be over-cranked on occasions where the car turns on prior to the set cranking time being fully completed. For example, if I set the crank time to 7 seconds but the vehicle turns on in 5 seconds there will be an over-cranking time of 2s which can cause wear or severe damage to the vehicles flywheel and/or starter-motor etc.
Is there a way I can get the relay module to turn off automatically once it knows that the car has started?
All help is appreciated.
