The review said there no need to splice or cut any of the ignition wires and that the Zero Sports kit was really plug and play. The red button (smaller and not as nice as the S2000's) was placed in one of the blanks next to the cruise control.

    Have fun.

    Here is a review and install (with pictures) of the Zero Sports Formula Start Button.

    As you can all see, the starter button is small, I don't think it is illuminated and doesn't have the word "START ENGINE" on it.

    Have fun.

    A for effort
    D for application.

    such a great idea, plug and play, easy to do, and then that damned cheesy button. if you're going to go that far to make the thing work, why not use something aesthetically pleasing? i was all excited til i linked to it and saw that. blah.

    I had one in my very first car, a Datsun F10. But that was because the factory ignition switch went to crap. I guess I don't get it, but I tend to lean toward the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' crowd.

    Starter Button Bling.

    The BMW Z8 has a great looking button. This button has really got me thinking about putting this switch into my wrx. It matches the interior and it is very high quality. However, I priced it at the BMW dealership and it is $95. However, I need the schematic. If I can just get the wiring kit, this would be nice to plug and play. Turn key and push button. I like the idea. any thoughts out there?

    I guess I can answer a few of these questions myself. Using threads from NASIOC...
    Push button install & Help with Starter Button Install

    If you take off the plastic cover on the bottom of the steering column (1 screw on the bottom, then gently pull down) you'll have access to the back of the ignition switch (driver's side of steering column). Look at the individual soldered terminals....the one closest to the floor is the one you want. It's either black w/ a yellow tracer, or black w/ a white tracer... You can cut and splice into this wire, then it goes to one side of your push button switch. The other side of the switch can be wired to any hot wire that comes on when the ignition key is turned to the "On" postion (NOT start)
    Wiring Diagram for Impreza. Page 11.

    Take off bottom of steering column and look at the left side. There's that little "hub" of soldered wires on the back side of the ignition. The one at the 5 o'clock position (black/yellow) is the ignition wire. The one at the 7 o'clock position (black) is the hot source you want (only hot when key at 'ON' and dead otherwise. Tap a wire into both, put a momentary button between and you're done. Car will start with EITHER key or button. If you want extra security, don't tap the black/yellow - cut it. Tape off the end that's attached to the "hub" and the car will ONLY start with the button.

    Please don't ask me to do a write-up on the install because I don't recall the details. I put the S2000 button in my WRX as shown below and it works perfectly. I adapted Miata instructions to my car and I'm very pleased. As for the loss of the cigarette lighter, I don't smoke nor own a phone charger and my radar detector is hardwired.

    Is there away to make it think there is a key inserted and in the on position so all you have to do is press the button to start instead of inserting the key?

    Thanks,
    Zack
