    Not exactly the same thing but my dad installed push button starts on a couple of Saab 900 turbos we have a few years ago. He put them under the bottom of the steering column, kinda stealthy so only you know it's there but you just push and start, pretty cool though... i like the idea of actually being able to see it...
    It's not how you stand by your car, it's how you race your car...

    campbell - I bought the red illuminated push button (red button w/ chrome bezel) I bought it online from Options Auto Salon and I think I paid about $66.00 for it...

    Nexus6 - You're right, it is a bit of unnecessary bling for $70.00, but having fun with these cars is what it's all about, right?

    Silvercharged,

    DJTIC003,

    why would you put a monitor and dvd player in your car? Is it for the passengers to watch movies during long drives? Makes sense in minivans w/ kids, but I never understood it in cars...I always thought that would be too distracting....UNLESS, it's to hook up a Playstation to play during traffic (dangerous still), but WAY cool.
    BTW, I think the dash would get pretty hot...unless there's ashield of some kind. I'd love to see pics of the final set-up...

    well actually the moniter will be for a playstation eventually. but the dvd is to replace the cd player and add a navigation sys. it's also going to be usefull at shows if i have to wait to show my car and will be one of the main interioir mods i'm hoping to score points with. in about five years if i've done enough to my car i plan on showing it off. five years and 5k later it could be in sport compact, import auto craze, or import tuner. maybe even that lame hi rev tuners will see my car. but it's for show mostly and will not be watched or played while driving ( e-brake has to be engaged anyway the way most installers do it). thats also the reason for the start button.

    A NAv system sounds pretty cool. Thanks for helping me understand.

    Hope your plans for show-room greatness works out.

    QuickSilver - Sorry I didn't get to this sooner, man, I'm working too much! Anyway, the switch is very heavy duty, although it doesn't have to be, since full starter amperage is taken through the starter relay, not the switch.
    The switch comes apart (sort of like how a tail light bulb comes out, turn and unlock) so, once you've removed the lighter, you put one part behind the lighter hole, and the bezel and lens assy in front of the lighter hole and just "click" them together. It's a perfect fit.
    As far as the wiring goes, I took the starter wire off the ignition switch, (it's easier than it sounds) extended it, and ran it to the push button switch. Since the starter will work off ANY 12V supply that's on when the ignition (key) switch is on, I just tapped the power off the lighter (it's only on when the ignition is on) and ran that to the switch. No need to run power from the fuse box or anywhere else, the lighter wire is right there. The ground for the push button I also took from the lighter circuit, it's right there! The power for the push button light I took right from the ashtray light, again, it's right there!
    I picked the red only because it's "traditional" I guess, and all the other cars that use this kind of switch (S2000, Aston Martin) use a red starter button. It's a cool mod, and the car feels much, much faster......

    Hey, Thanks a lot for the detailed install directions. I appreciate it...still thinking about the location (I may need that lighter area to recharge my phone or a laptop). The fit does sound perfect, though.

    In All, it is a cool mod that's also low budget.
