Default 92 SC400 Ashtray Push Button start

After viewing some threads i decided to install my own Push button start. I decided to put it in the cigarette lighter hole next to the ash tray as it's hidden and i have no need for the cigarette lighter port. Push button used was one i required from eBay for $10.37.

Posted a video below to show it in use.

Never have understood a push button start if you have to use a key?

It's possible to rig it where it doesn't require the key but it's less secure

this is pretty neat. now only if you didnt have it disconnected and started i think people might welcome it a little bit more. i like where youre going with it.

What counts about a mans car is if it puts a smile on his face when he takes it for a drive. Push button start is very unique on an older car. Looks great!

Can you turn it off with the button too or do you use the key?
