Default start button..how do I do it?

I was looking on PTCrew.com...I see there is a photo of Den's inferno GT where he has put in a Start Button . How do I do this? Where do I get it? How do I install it? Is this a good idea? Do you still use the key? Is it hard to do?

Hey Phil, AutoZone sells those buttons on their web site. Thought about getting one for my a couple of years ago. Not sure how they hook up, possibly the AutoZone people might know or hopefully it would come with instructions. I believe you would still put the key in the ignition, turn it to "on" the push the button.

Same way a Remote Starter works...Just as a button in the car!

From what I understand.... wiring the switch is as follows.....


Splice the yellow wire coming from the ignition switch and route it to one pole on the momentary switch....

the other pole goes to a SWITCHED positive feed, coming from the lower ciggarrete 12v, and that should do it right?

Its really not hard, and thats what im understanding thus far.

I DID IT!

aright fellas its finally done!

check out the youtube video! Suprisingly it looks pretty bad, it was a lot lighter when viewing on the computer without watching on youtube, oh well you get the idea.

I used the child-lock for the rear windows, as the 12v feed is cut when the child-lock is engaged! That way I have some sort of killswitch incase you have a passenger that Is known to touch all the buttons haha.

well let me know what you think!

Why are you playing with the window switch while you are pusing the button?Also where can I buy a Start button kit for cheap?

To show if the child-lock is engaged the starter switch becomes inactive.

ebay sells starter button kits that have multicolored lights and stuff but thats too much.
