I've been working on a 97 F150 and was asked today about putting a biometric ignition into it. I know nothing about these things. Searched the internet and they seem simple enough to install but there is very little beyond "possible problems" on how they interface with the ECU. Anyone have any experience or opinions about this one?

Yup, my thoughts exactly. No response is a loud opinion voiced. I'm not going to do it. I really do fear problems that are black holes. Especially when I've created them myself.

The interface should be a simple switch. The problem is in the biometric scanner hardware and software. I wouldn’t trust it without a backup.
