I was doing some thinking. I dont use my ashtrey/cig lighter so I was wondering if I could make a plate with a ignition, a togle and a push button starter to fit over that area. Anyone try that?

Haven't tried it. Just don't do anything cheesy that would make your car look hillbillie. A nice piece of thin stainless steel would be very easy to cut with a $4 scroll saw. Then smooth and polish the edge. Drill your holes and if you use any bolts, screws or nuts get some nice chrome ones or 3D tape to hold it in place. And take pictures for us. I could maybe help you out with this. either through doing it or helping you to do this. Ethcing the stainless would look cool:thumbup:

yea i think it would. I saw it done in one of my close friends pantera and would like to carry that idea over to my car. I have a cnc plasma cutter I could use to cut out the stainless

It would look clean if a push button was installed into a billet ash tray housing.

Theres enough room to have a push button, push button dead switch, and maybe a fog light switch.:thumbup:

sorry to bring this back from the dead guys, but i cant find that damn button at advanced, autzone, or pep boys. I dont want to order it online cause the only ones i have found are over $70, you guys see them anywhere for cheap?

you should be able to wire it up with any switch that the store sells. Just some of them come with wires and relays, and others are just a switch. If it comes with a harness buy it, and it should wire up the same way.


Now to my question (if anyone reads this dead thread)


Tell me if you guys think this will work, or is there anyway i can change this to make it work. I want to use this idea as a killswitch(not for racing, for theft prevention). I was thinking about wiring it up to the cigarette lighter instead of a switch. So then if the cigg lighter wasn't in, it would not be making a connection and would not start. If it's in there then the car will start. Is it possible for me to just wire this up to the lighter instead of the switch, and have it do what I want? i hanv't put to much thought into it, but i'm going to soon and see if i can get it to work, just figured some of you might know off the tops of your heads.


Also, i know a real killswitch is usually inbetween the battery and everythign else, so that the car can not be hotwired. With this, the car can still be hotwired, right? So is their anyway i can make it so this way cannot be hotwired, or should i just do the regular killswitch inbetween the batt. and everythign else


Thanks

Well, you want to keep hardcore security....

Push button and/or remote starting is cool as it makes it a uniques machine,....like starting a airplane

So.... for the 99-04, you have to put the key in, and turn it so everythings powered... then hit the button?

Whats the point of doing all of this, if you have to still put the key in the ignition for it to work?

To look cool to your GF?
