Wiring in a push button start

Postby iety2004 » 04 Apr 2005, 09:58

Not to good when it come to electrics, i say average, but i want to know if you guys uses these and if so,

How do you wire them in?

Theres one rocker switch for the ignition, with two pins on the back,
One big push button for the starter motor to coneectors on the back
and one extra toggle for the fuel at a latter date
And the are two led's one red for igniton, two pins on the back, and one green for the car to be running im guessing

cheers

Assuming you are putting a single push button to start the car. Keep the keyswitch wired the same way so that the key brings on all the instruments and accessories. Splice into the starting circuit and wire across it the push button, then mount it in the dashboard. This will allow you to have the push button to start the car, but also allow you to retain the key to start the car should you ever want to remove the button.

remember though iety, the more complicated you make electrics the more things there are to go wrong 5 minutes before you are due to start the stage.................
when all else fails, rivets, cable ties and bodge tape will see you through

Wiring in a starter button

Postby TJM » 31 May 2005, 18:23

Hi,

First things you must decide if you still want the ignition key in the circuit (check with your local MOT centre as they will advise the best way to do it so it will not affect your MOT in anyway).

Then it will be easier to supply a wiring diagram for you. Did one not come with the kit?

Cheers

Yeah, i want to include the key and just wire the buttons in, i bought the kit off ebay so i wasn't suprised when i didn't get any instructions,

I wanna make up a centre consol in the same place the SR Kadetts and HS Chevettes have there extra gauges, gonna use carbon fibre sheeting and some small aluminium 90 degree brackets

the key barrel is a 3 position switch, it consists of an auxilary circuit switch, and ign circuit swtich and a spring loaded switch.

if you want your key to operate the ign circuit then you'll not need the toggle switch (with twin pumps it could be used for the second one)

the push button should be wired in as Doive says.

oh just to show off my starter button is illuminated and glows red with the dash ignition light
