I knew someone would have this trouble!
There are two little dot type things on the lighter that you have to press.
I took mine to a garage, did it for free no bother

Re: How to Install an Engine Push Start Button

Hey,
I guess it has to be a 'springy' one
It doesnt hold into place like say the cig lighter button does.. its more like the button on the iPhone where its just pressed and comes back to its natural place.
Some of the other comments above indicate where you can get the button from.

And no it doesnt, its just there to ignitiate the starter motor.

Hope this helps
Thanks pinkbay thanked for this post

Honestly mate I have no idea. I got 'Dayjw' to help me with the wiring, I only know the colours of wires to use

Maybe an Auto electrician maybe able to help you out there, or someone on here.. Give 'Dayjw' a quick PM, he might be able to point you in the right direction.

And maybe search it on google? Someone may have already fitted one for your model of car

Re: How to Install an Engine Push Start Button

Hi,

I am currently installing my push start button just now but I am not to sure on which wire is terminal 15 and terminal 50 it is either the red wire or the brown wire.

Any help would be great Thanks Kirsty x

Re: How to Install an Engine Push Start Button

Sorry to drag up a year-old post, but just wanted to say thanks to iLeno This guide helped me install the push-button engine start in my Punto, and I'm loving it!

I managed to squeeze two contact pads behind the blank button on the centre switch rail (hazards, electric windows, etc.) and wire it up to send 12V from the cigarette lighter to a relay that then does the job of the button in your guide. Only took an hour or so to put it all in, and it means I can keep using my sat-nav charger

Re: How to Install an Engine Push Start Button

I purchased a richbrook "kit" online, the instructions were completely incomprehensible and included relays and all sorts, this guide shows you don't need all that rubbish and is incredibly simple to do

Re: How to Install an Engine Push Start Button

Great guide mate u covered everything. Has anyone else noticed that if you push the button without the key in the engine turns over but doesn't start. Then if you turn the key so the dash lights come on then it does start. just wondered if its normal

Completely normal, the button activates the starter but without the key in to deactivate the immobiliser (and turned to engage the electrics) the engine won't fire up.
