Lightbulb Push start button? Yes? No?

So yesterday I went to my friend's house, looking at the interior of his 02 Dodge magnum I noticed he added a universal "push start button" just like BMW, Lexus, and so on add on those luxury cars, so my question has anyone tried to add one to your dodge ram?

I think that could be a pretty sweet mod, I don't know how easy or hard it could be to do but you can find those cheap on ebay or a real cool one from this site http://www.kptechnologies.com/products.php#/18

Let me know what you guys think!!!






Heads up: I will be painting some of the engine components tomorrow... But that's another threat...

I dont think they belong on trucks that's why they don't come from the factory like that. Just sounds weird having a push button start on a pickup truck. I have it on my Challenger but I wouldn't do it on my Ram. JMO.

Yes you said it "they don't come from factory" that's why they sale universal ones, I find it cool to have one and not use your keys at all

Yes well see my ignition switch started to malfunction, the ACC doesn't work unless I manually press the key in (apply pressure so that the radio can be turned on), so I though of the push start button =)

I don't see why not. I've looked at them for mine, and all I've seen have been some hokey knock-offs, that one doesn't look too bad.

my wife likes the push button in her car b/c she can keep her keys in her pocket book. Doesn't bother me, i gotta pull the keys out of the pocket to unlock anyhow.

I kinda like the idea, actually, and recently helped install one on a friend's Ford Explorer, fun little project, I thought it was a cool mod! Like kevint03, though, I'm already used to having to use the key all the time, unlock/start, but wouldn't mind having a push button start on my truck, too

If you read the description in the link posted above I think you'll notice that this unit "does not provide any ignition switching" so you'll still have to use your key. Unless you get an additional IG50 Ignition Control Module - Which I can't find on their site.

I agree with the guys above...I don't think it belongs on a truck, but that's just my opinion.
