So with this "essentials only" diagram there is no need for a key to turn it off or on?

A key is easier to operate but all you really need to do is jumper the two lock wires together. If you do this you will need to unplug the battery when not in use.

So just leave the key harness plugged into the controller and it will work wired like this? Or is there some modifying that needs to be done?

the power locks connector needs to have a closed circuit to allow power output from the controller, ie a means to bridge the gap of the two wires (usually red and blue) you will need to install a male connector with a "U" wire going from the red to the blue to bypass the function of a key. Keys are pretty basic to install and my kids love the realism of having to put a key in an ignition to turn the car on. My favorite part is that if they act up I take the keys from them :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

A toggle switch works well too....but not as "real"

I just got a PC740-2C-C1-12D DPDT Relay and it has 2 tabs marked "A" and "B" but they are the same size as the other 6 tabs. Also, the numbers are all screwed up on this. It goes 1,4,7,3,6,9,2,5,8,A, space,B with 4,6, and 5 having no tabs on them (middle ones) in the order like you were reading a book. Am I safe in assuming that 1 would be 1, 7 should be 3, 3 should be 4, 9 should be 6, 2 should be 7, and 8 should be 9? Confused yet lol?!?

Don't worry so much about the number sequence, take a good look at the Relays inner workings. You can see where the contacts rest without power (Normally Open / Normally Closed). Hit the A/B pins with 12v and see what actually happens with the contacts. With the A/B at the bottom, the 1st set up is where power comes in, the 2nd set up is the NO and the 3rd set up is NC. Once you see it work you will understand completely, all Relays will make more sense going forward!

Im really stupid when it comes to this stuff. By 1st set do you mean the top 2 tabs when A & B are on the bottom? And I dont understand about the NO and NC. Especially when it comes to using the old go pedal for the new brake. It said to use the battery and middle pins. I have the top (red wire)pin going from the + battery to the brake and the middle (orange wire) pin going from the brake to the DPDT relay, is this correct?

Can someone please post a link to a 24-36v DPDT relay and what you are using for the brake resistor? Or would the resistor already be on the power wheel?

Want to do this in a 24v Peg RZR 800 that the kids use to drive through a swamp. :shock:
