I can probably get you the how to... my one friend did it. He explained it, and told me if I wanted a wiring diagram, he could do one up. Will my starter on my key chain still work if I do this though???
Mind you that that doesn't really start your car. You still need the ECU to be running for a spark map (through the CAS) and of course the fuel pump to be running. All what you're talking about does is just turn the starter motor.
ive actually done this, except i used switches instead of a push button start.
one day while i was at work, my starter switch broke one late night, i didnt want to be stuck at work any longer than the two hours that i was already there, so i opened the steering column, and i spilced into the wires that went to the key, and it started, so i basically hot-wired my car.
so i left it like that for about a week trying to figure out what to do with it.
i tried the push button switch they have at autozone, but the connections were too small to handle that load. i then took some 8 guage wire i had from an old amp setup and some heavy-duty flip switches, mounted them on my dash, and works fine.
all the key does is lock the steering wheel now, im impressed with the out-come. but i wouldnt recommend doing it this way unless you have a good alarm. :wink:
ya i have the idea just someone in the erdt board posted pictures of both plugs at the ignition (steering column) and shows which to cut and splice for what you want
its simple but id like to know the wires first that would make it so i dont test the power cuz my wires are really short and a biatch to test
anyways this is what im doing hooking it up so that the key will unlock the wheel and give power to my accessories ie heater lights etc.
but i will have a nitrous switch to give power to the push button, the pushbutton will be connected to a relay which will start the car
now i will have a toggle switch which has two settings push button and key
when i turn the toggle on i have the car in push button mode, when i turn the toggle off its back to the old turn the key to start and the push button wont work
its all pretty simple with the help of relays but again i just need to know what wires to cut without figuring it out by testing if anyone has the pics from the original howto that would help alot
