So when u say will not replace the key, stage one is like audio yeah, and stage 2 is where ur electrics come on, then the last one ignites the car? Instead of turning the key to 3 u just push the button yh??

Imma one click away from buying myself on! :D and I'd defo use this guide :P!!!


Yes, you turn the key to 2 then press the button.

yes the novelty of having a button, but surely key in, pos 1, pos 2 button is slower than key in, 1-2-3 go!

Its like the button on the Honda Civic. Its sort of pointless. (Except on the civic you have to use it you cant turn the key further instead.

I mean why have a system where you put the key to position 2 then have to press a button? I like start buttons theyre a cool novelty but unless you have keyless start like my dad's Megane or the option on the titaniums (now standard I believe?) then its kind of pointless.

Agree with you 100% mate,:)

Its double Jobbing id prefer a 12v Socket for my Sat Nav, Mp3 or Phone Charger,

If i had keyless entry then yes id love a push start but i have an ignition so no thanks.

Especially if your planning on doing a Bank Job,:ph34r: :ph34r:

You donít want to be:

Eh ok Step 1, i turn the key once, then twice, ok done

Step 2, where did i drill the hole again?:unsure:

Step3, ah yes there it is,:rolleyes:

Step 4, Press the button

Step 5, Clutch and gear

Step 6, Off Handbrake and Gone!:P

No thanks cops would have you surrounded by the time you reach step 4 :(

I wouldn't recommend cutting any wires!

The way it is wired up, you NEED the key in at stage II (ignition on) for the button to be active

This DOES NOT replace the key it is purely for aesthetic purposes

If you wanted the button to work without the key you would have to somehow install the keyless start modules and receivers

Unrelated to the actual mod, but related to some comments in this thread: anyone got the factory keyless start on a new diesel? All the talk about leaving it a few seconds before cranking the engine, I'm wondering how this works with the keyless systems where - as has been pointed out - you just get in, press clutch and press the button. Should you press the button without depressing the clutch to turn on the electrics for a few seconds or does the system automatically delay the engine turning until the glow plugs are ready? Purely selfish reasons for asking, since I have one and I'm wondering how things'll work when it turns colder :)

As for the mod itself, it does appear an odd one at first look but I think I can see a case for it if you're the kind of person who's willing to put the work in. Good guide anyway, and brave to try it :)
