Default Push button start or similar for 2014 Big Horn??

Is there anyway to get factory push button start or something similar installed after vehicle purchase?

My 2012 Durango had push button start and you could remove the button and still push in the ignition without the key fob inserted and start the vehicle. With the Ram you have to insert the key fob and turn to start the vehicle. So I guess another question is does the key fob actually serve a purpose other than physically turning the ignition switch?? Is there any way to start the truck without the key fob inserted?

I was thinking something similar to what Mazda has might work:

Any thoughts??

No seriously doubt it. I have both and have the wife rub it in that I don't have push button. You have to get a sport or Laramie.

I've been thinking about doing it myself. I think there are numerous companies out there that have after market products. Here is one I found a while back that looked interesting.

Not sure how I feel about the whole card thing. What do I do with the rest of my keys I need to carry? I think I would much rather have a key fob on a key ring.

Anyone know exactly how the key fob works and what is in the end of it to make it start the vehicle when turned? I tried using a screw driver to turn the ignition with the key inside the truck but no luck.

It would be nice if there was a factory add-on kit for this like they have for remote start. Not sure I would want to go aftermarket with this.

Key fob is coded. Same reason u need a bypass module when adding an aftermarket remote starter.
That being said.....the distance from the ignition switch that the fob must be can be close.
The push n go system uses a fob and the receiver in the truck with a greater range.
It could be possible to add an aftermarket start button and a bypass module. But never tried it.
It also could be possible to add the stock button (maybe same plug on back), then program the trucks BCM (a GM reference) and program match a key fob.
I've done vehicle upgrades for years and my input as I have thought of doing this already, is that this wouldn't be easy.....Will take patience and time.... would be a pain in the rump

And the big question is why go through all that. There is no real gain from it.
