When i first saw my car, sitting on the corner with a for sale sign on it. I decided that I would buy it. I did. After that I decided that I really wanted a sweet push button ignition and an engine kill switch, like a rocket or a race car or something cooler than an early nineties economy car. Well, it has been nearly a year and today i tore apart my dash, cut up some wires, soldered and drilled and figured and puzzled for about 5 hours and now, the final result, you will see in this instructable.

I will show you how to wire in a push button ignition and an engine kill switch in your car. It’s easy, as I have done all of the puzzling and figuring for you. I should take between one and two hours, depending on how fast you can take apart your dashboard. This project cost me $25 for a soldering iron, wire, one relay, two momentary buttons, and a switch. If you have some of these it will be cheaper. Either way, this is a small price to pay for such a cool feature.
