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?

Did you say "your woman" put in a push button start? But yeah, whats the point if you have to use the key?

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

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?
