Hey everyone, I get my new car tomorrow and we are having a sliding electric gate fitted to the front entrance to our property. I am after some advice on an electrical project to permanently fit a switch into my car.

I want to avoid rendering one of the remote fobs they give me useless, here's a video example of what I'm after, but I really don't understand how to know where to solder :(

Simples, just look for the little "t1t" which clicks when you push the button. Like those on a keycard or plip key. It's the same technology.

Cheers Tim. Do I look for t1t on the circuit board or is that just what they're called

Those switches are very lightly built.
In the video he just solders a tougher switch across the switch contacts.
Just find the contacts for the switch on the back of the board with a multimeter and use those.
