Anybody know an easy way to hook up a remote starter so you can crank the engine from the engine bay?

I think you can ground terminal 3 of the stater relay, or put power on terminal 4, or supply power to the terminal where the small wire connects to the starter.

ive done it before by cliping an aligator clip lead to the small signal wire on the starter, then just touching it to the main hot cable on the starter

The easiest place to reach is probably at the starter relay. I can't read the electrical diagram online and don't have my BGB handy, but if you unplug the relay and jumper the brown and white wires in the connecter that should do it.

Looking at the BGB2 wiring diagrams last night, it looks like putting 12V on pin 1 of the start relay will work. That will also kick on the cold start relay.

I want to simulate turning the key so I can watch injectors, spark and timing, without making my wife hang around while I setup a test.

The next question is "Where is the starter relay?". I didn't find it in the engine bay, so I assume it's up in the frunk.

Just do what mr2matt said, touch the male end of the signal wire (on the solenoid) with the batt cable. All you need is ... 4" of wiring.

How excatly do you wanna watch the "injectors"? For the spark, just unplug it and place it near a ground. As for the timing, just get a timing gun?
