Post subject:  First Mod - Electronic Left Foot Accelerator

We purchased my wife's MY11 XT-p a few weeks ago and a few days later it was booked in for it's first modification, Left Foot Accelerator.
We were going to go for a "quick release mechanical" version but found the unit to be cumbersome and the bolted in section got in the way.
So opt-ing for the Electronic version, we got the work carried out and boy was I impressed.

Here is the foot pedal setup - (might have to look into getting a OEM pedal to see if can make it look more uniform)

How it works
The left foot accelerator is wired into a switch and into the existing accelerator wiring.
So once the car is turned on, the switch (pictured below) flashes for 8 seconds, in which needs to be pressed to active the left foot accelerator and null the original.
If the button isn't pressed in this time, the car runs as original. I think this is great so when the car is taken in for a service or if I need to drive it, there is no hassle about needing to "release" the bolt in version.

This is the switch and diagram.

All this work was carried out by InCar Installations in Fairy Meadow NSW, and has been engineered to keep it all legal and not void any insurances.
Cost was around the $1700-1800 mark.
Anyway, thought I'd share the unusual mod that was completed.

that's pretty neat mate. Have you got a prosthesis or something?

Guessing muscular distrophy or similar. Managers son has set up his car with similar setup, but mechanical version, as he has trouble with that side.

My wife has severe ataxia in her right leg after getting deep vein thrombosis ( laymans terms, very little control over the movement of her right leg).
So to get her some independence we got this installed.
She's loving it!!

Can the throttle selector not be set on "both" then make the car twice as fast when pressing both pedals?

Seems like an opportunity missed. :P
