    This is done quite easily...just need to short out two pins on the ignition switch...

    I worked out the ignition barrel connector pins on the CIM module as shown in the image on this thread in the link below. look on page 6 for the circuit board image.

    You will need to short out pins 3 and 5, where 5 is a permanent live feed and 3 is feed to the starter system.

    Just one word of caution, pin 7 is also shorted to pin 5 and therefore is live during "ignition live" condition, but not during the starter switch position.
    It is not certain whether there is a reason for pin 7 being isolated during the cranking process. Well I don;t knoww the reason anyway.

    IMO, This would be pointless if you still have to put the key in and turn to pos 2. I really cannot see why anyone wouyld waste their time, effort and money on such a worthless thing.

    Put key in, turn to pos 2 and the move hand to push button start button..... WTF?

    do it john. robertson!! seems kind of simple if you have the electrical know-how. and people are going on about the key. even cars with push start you still have to put somthing in the car be it a key or a card so its the same idea.


    Only problem would be trying to decide where to put the button!! and what style!




    do it! and make a good how2 so i can copy it haha
