it can be done but the ignition switch is different to the push button switch

Personally having tested this to date I realised how it can save the key barrell as well. I turn the key barrel to reds and because you don't need to kink it to start it has less wear on the keybarrell

Default Re: All FG SERIES ENGINE START BUTTON OPINIONS PLEASE.

do you have to hold the button until the engine fires, or is it same as turning the key in FG and only press it once and it self starts?

does it require a qualified person to fit it or is the kit designed as plug and play?

do you have a ballpark price for kit, including postage to adelaide?

cheers
Rob

Any progress Stav?

Not having to put the key int the ignition barrel and turn, then push the button would definately be the way to go IMO.

(Obviously having the key turned ignition as a backup)

hey stav , i think that you need the option of either push start and ignition start on, since reading this forum what does happen if the start button plays up what can you do to start the car?

Thats how I do them. I dont like the start button only because you can get stranded.

My GS came with the push button start but, as you know, I need to turn the key first. Is there a way to make this a keyless start button? Like, jump in the car with the keys in your pocket and press the button and go.

I'm a fan of the button, not a fan of having to turn the key to push the button.

Cheeeeeeeeeers

The physical key needs to be turned in the barrel so the steering wheel can be used. So unfortunately no.

That and I think the ignition barrel needs to see the transponder chip within the key/remote unit ... it's only a close proximity thing.

Old thread I know but the "START" button that replaces one notch of key turn in the barrel still makes me laugh ... a year on, owning a FPV.

Your post is exactly why the Euros invented " keyless go ",
key in pocket - you approach the car, it unlocks... you hop in the car , push
the button, car starts , all good , that makes perfect sense, right ?

So in their wisdom, FPV reinvented this wheel and made it square, why ? (only $8.45 of R&D coin left ?) Someone, somewhere in marketing deserves an upper cut ( or two )

Our present 'button' is backward, retarded, useless, gimmicky, annoying

and "yes" I'm finished

I'd love remote start with a prime for the surge tank prior...

Wouldn't care if I had to put the key in and turn the ignition for the steering wheel, but for really cold mornings in winter, remote start would be awesome to let her warm up a bit.
