Instructional On installing a Push Button Starter

I haven't actually looked under the dash yet to check everything out, but did you use these same instructions to do it, with no problems?

also where did you get your push start button, cause I like the blue but I would prefer one with a black rim around it

I got mine at autozone last night, it has 3 different colors (red blue and clear/white) and was 29.99. Its got everything all ready to wire up. There is a aluminum bezel around it that you can keep on or take off as well.

why do this? if your going to spend the time put a remote start on your car thats what mine has. the remote controls everything in my car. airbags,doors,sterio,neons,doors,hood,trunk and starts the car.

Hi, I'm Steven
i just took the time to read this......im thinking.....


if you do it, can you still turn the key all the way to get it to start?

Read the first post, if you cut the pink/white (starter trigger) wire, you can only use the button, if you just strip the wire and tie into it, you can still use the key.

For you guys wanting to use a toggle switch instead (nascar look) of a button, goto radio shack and get a momentary toggle, just make sure to mount it in a place that won't be hit while your going down the road. Better yet, get a gaurded momentary toggle, that way you don't have to worry about it. :thumbup:

YOu guys have a wiring diagram for this? I'm a little confused as to what wires goto what on the relay(NO, NC, Coil, Comm). I don't plan on using the autozone switch if I ever use it, I just don't like the look of it. I want a use gaurded momentary toggle and relay.

Hi, I'm Steven
I installed mine today and made the needed changes so that this applies to the 94-98

The switch i bought came from Autozone, made by pilot. it was $30, but worth the money since you get instructions, a nice wiring harness, a chrome switch, optional mounting plate, 3 lense covers (red, blue and clear) and a swivel base so you dont have the tear it all apart if you want to change the colors. the harness consisted of Black, Red, Yellow, and White Wires.


Tools You Will Need:
Set of wrenches
Wire Cutters
Screw Driver
Electrical Tape
Box Cutter


What You Need To Do:

1. Remove the Kick Panel and the Metal Piece Underneath it.

2. find the Black box with wires coming out of it (it has a grey top with a screw holding it in. Be careful taking it off, I broke mine all to ****. I didnt bother trying to get it back on because 1) it was broken and 2) the wires were so large, and well restrained, there wasnt a lot of point in putting it back.

3. Once that is removed you will see 5 bigger Yellow Wires. These are all Constants, You can hook any of these into the buttons power wire.

4. Use the Wire Cutters to strip about a half of an ich of the wire coating off. Then take a wrap the wire from the relay (in my case red) around that striped spot and then use electrical tape to hold it in place. Another way to do it is to take your Box cutters and strip the wire away in one spot. this keeps you from having to completely cut the wire, and turned out to be really convienent.

5. Next look for a Black/green wire (this is what it was on the 98). Take the yellow wire from the relay and do it the same way as the red wire.


6. The next one is the starter wire. Which is white/pink and a bit (not much!) smaller than the rest. you can splice into this one the same way as above, but i really DO NOT recomend it! Could lead to later problems!

7. After everything is hooked up, youre going to want to find a ground. I found that the best place was on the metal peice that remains after you took everything apart from under the steering wheel. i simply hooked the ground wire on to one of the screws and bolted it down. its easily hidden, and easily accessable.

8. Now that youre wired up, connected everything do the spot you located on the dash to mount it. the kit should have come with an optional bracket, but if you decide to put it on the dash, the best place is on the guage cluster bezel. i found that all the included wires are the PERFECT length and do not need to be altered at all to get to this spot. not to mention, it looks really good in the car too

9. To use the swich you will need to put ur key in, turn it so that all the power in the car comes on and then hit the button. The engine should start.

would someone please post a diagram or at least the voltages/amperages of the 3 wires involved. If I were to do this, I'd do a custome one so I could use a momentary toggle mounted by the shifter.

sorry man, cant help there - especially if the wires are different. the best way is to check your Hayes manual - wiring diagrams are in there and help me out A LOT! :thumbup:

Actually, I was talking about how the relay and switch are wired, Ie whats com, whats NO whats NC, whats coil, etc.
