Hi, i'm installing an remote starter on my 98 rav 4. and i was wondering, does anyone know where the tach wire is at? and i read the booklet and it say its at the ignition coil and i can't find it? i don't know what it look like, so can anyone send me a picture of it or describe where it is at with detail, thanks...

wow , old bendix starters ,they are long long gone, (done many)
a blast from the past. LOL
so is this an after market hacked in Remote?>
well buy a new system and read the instructions.
if using an old system , get the instructions online, at makers web site, we can not guess makers, of anything aftermarket.
it hangs up the starter solenoid, , and is very dangerous to you , like that. sure.
my guess is the control (in car) is bad, shorted relay in box or transistor that drives the small wire to the starter, or to cars starter relay .
the starter relay is in the USA PDC fuse box.
all answers USA , not export jeeps, this is a USA forum (calif)
the easiest way to add remote entry is to get an alarm system or remote car starter off of ebay. you have to be pretty good at wiring to install them but they do come with directions. you will need the wireing diagrams of your car also. if you are not very confident in wiring you can have them installed for one or two hundred dollars at a sterio shop.
sorry never done one so i havent a clue,in the good old days the tach connected to the coil wire but now with all this fancy electrics ,Well what happens is they call it vehicle security so they dont have to release the diagrams and this is done to stop people like myself from by passing the immobilisers when we service a vehicle.Because no doubt as you are aware on new cars that if you drop the oil the immobiliser cuts in.Change the battery and the same thing happens.So what happens to keep the dealers in work ,yes you have guessed it no wiring diagrams ,multilayered circuit boards and wires all the same colour to stop people like me from soldering the two outside legs together of a big switching transistor together to make the vehicle general mechanic friendly.Also encrypted software is used to stop the fault codes from being read ,they throw up the wrong code ?? try asking dealer to install then post where he connected too .,best of british with it
