Not mine but I remeber somebody on RPS doing this. Here what he did. (Rat Ranger)
I used an S2000 start button. you have to file someof the ribs off its sides and maybe file a little off the cigarette lighter hole to get it to fit. but here are the pics and the wiring diagrams I did up.

I thought it was good idea, something different and at the same time very stock and unique.

thank you i agree. what he wants to do with his stuff he can do if you dont like it keep it to yourself or just say "thats silly" and thats all. my brother had on his 95 with a safety switch mounted under the seat and the push button under the steering wheel.

Nobody's giving a reason that this is a benefit other than A: you feel like your ranger is a race car. Or B: it broke and it was a cheap fix. Other wise just plain silly.

Thats your opinion. Its his truck so he can install whatever button he wants to. I like to think of this site as a place to come and get information to mod your vehicle, not to get judged and shot down on.

I had a 'push start' so to speak on my 1990
I had 2 temporary on switches (where you push them to engage, and they are spring loaded to release when you let go) wired in series (so that accidentally pushing one didn't spin the starter). I forget exactly which wires i used, but I by passed the clutch switch and the ignition key...

walk in, push both down, let go... walla..

my 1999 has a push start feature from the factory, but i usually don't use it because its such a pain to get the truck rolling and then pop the clutch every time

LOL, You seem pretty ignorant to auto Forums for someone who has 17000 + posts. If he wanted only positive input, maybe it should be for something that has a benefit, or just asked his buddies off line. Once he went public it is fair game. It is silly, pointless and another thing that Car guys moved on from 60 years ago that people think they just discovered. The only cars it makes sense for are the ones with no keys, like the Nissan Altima I rented. You just had to have the key fob on you and then only push the starter button. Turning a key and then pushing a button is silly and a step backwards. It is like driving around with a Window net on your truck. Silly and I will make fun of it. And if you can't take it, either hit the ignore user button, or don't post on the internet.

If you want to put a ceramic pile of Dog poop on your hood it is your truck and I will support your right to do it, but I am going to make fun of it. Especially if you post it here.

I also suggest you all get thicker skin, there sure have been some Sally's on here lately.

Are you talking about a hidden kill switch? If not how is it any more of a theft deterrent than a keyed starter? Is it you just hope that after they break the ignition free they won't notice the button?

Thats great, your just being a douche about it. He didn't ask for your opinion he asked if anyone had installed one.

You guys are silly, I think you need a break from the computer if you can't handle it. Name one rule I have broken? Calm down. Feel free to ignore me if you don't liek what I say. Trust me there are a lot worse on this site Than what I posted, some has been said to me, you know what. I take it like a man. I have no beef with anyone here. This is how Car guys are, and how this place used to be. We are brutally honest. I asked what the benefits were maybe if he told me some I would change my opinion. He didn't so I say it is silly, like tire Flies for GT/R badges from Checker. If you post it on the forum you are asking for opinions. I have installed one and I thought it was stupid. I was just to lazy to rewire a column in the old skater truck I bought of someone for $50. If it was a better truck I would have done it right.

Hes not getting banned over this lol, there are no rules being broken. I don't know why you guys think you'll get banned for just arguing. As long as theres no personal attacks or excessive cursing you have nothing to worry about.

I've been sketchy? LOL! You really must have thin skin. I have never even thought about attacking someone here. I like most people here, Heck it is the only reason I am still here while I am inbetween rangers. This place is fun and not a bunch of old guys with too much money like other auto sites I belong to. BTW Differing opinions are not a direct attack. Hell calling me a A**hat is closer than anything I have ever done, but I could care less. My life doesn't revolve around whether a person on the interweb likes my truck or not. Life is too short buddy, Calm down.

I don't think he was calling you sketchy, I think he was saying the forum with the banning issue has been sketchy.

Thats not just my viewpoint James, I'm pretty sure all the staff share the same viewpoint.

Now lets try to get back on topic lol

Fair enough,

Wow, all over a starter button.

Thanks to all for the input but Pics, pics, pics, PLEASE.

I think there was one in there and that was interesting.

Again, this is for info only, just seeing what has been done, really expected only the 2x4s to respond.

Its nice when it's actually factory, and part of a comfort access system where you dont need to take the key out of your pocket to get in the car either just walk up to it, sit in it, hit a button and go. but a little pointless if you still need to stick your key in the ignition for the vehicle to start. All new BMW's have a button, but they are just doing it to get out of the clunky ignition, key and tumbler system and go electircal like everything else. Just a slot for your "key" (chunk of plastic) and a button, much cleaner less to break/wear out. New Jaguars don't even have a place to put the key anymore. I like it, but wouldn't bother putting it in something that didn't have it.
