If the actuator kills main power, you won't be able to disarm the alarm and flip the solenoid again :gay:

Instead of unlocking my doors, I'll have a door actuator flip a kill switch wired from the battery in a custom box behind my spare tire. Also, since it's a 90, I don't have a remote trunk release, so getting in the trunk without massive cutting is close to impossible. Then I'll just run a wire from my radio to the battery so my presets are all saved.

What does everyone think? Any computer issues possibly?

Not if you wire the solenoid to pick up power directly from the battery before the break. :gay:

Heh, I had a couple of buddies a few years ago and we all 3 had 3rd gen Toyota Supras. All of our keys would operate all three cars...

do the old "hot rod magnet trick" and place a magnetic switch behind some panel and carry a small magnet on you... when you start the car, hold the magnet in the "special spot" and it'll operate the switch.

just be careful powering relays when the car is sitting. two energized relays can suck away a half an amp of juice and kill your car dead in a few days.

I had always heard there were only like 10 or less NA miata keys in circulation. I never have been able to share keys with anyone though.

Actually it wasn't the solenoid I was worried about (its proximity to the battery solves that issue); it's the alarm brain I was thinking about.
