Passive Keyless Entry System
Has anyone ever seen a Passive Keyless entry system installed on a Taco? Since my truck wont fit in my garage and I have to park outside I have been researching remote start systems and came across passive keyless entry with push button start. This intrigued me because my moms Lexus has a system like this so you dont ever have to take the key card thing out of you pocket. With the aftermarket systems it unlocks the doors when the key gets close to the vehicle and locks them when you walk away. When you get in the truck you just have to hit the start button to start it up. Since I have a cap on the bed I thought it would be cool to incorporate an electric Pop & Lock system for both the cap and tailgate with the PKE system.
I dont like carrying a ton of keys and think it would be awesome to never have to take it out of my wallet/pocket. What are your thoughts on this? Has it been done? I searched and did not find anything. I am not great at dealing with car electronics but I am capable enough to install a complicated head unit and wire up some accessories. What do you think this install would entail? I assume it would require some sort of interlock for the chipped key.
