Default "Keyless"

Does anyone know if there is a way to retrofit the 09 Ram to have the push button start like the 11 Grand Cherokees? I test drove one and the push-button fob just gets put into the existing key hold.

It is possible to add the hardware but without supporting software which unless your a chrysler software developer is unavailable. dealership star mobile or witech does not have the ability to "turn on" different functions or add equipment that is currently not available as a mopar accessory...

if you hold your key fob near the switch without inserting, you can stick your finger in and turn - the truck will start and you can remove your finger. LOL...

I don't know if i like the ignition switch itself on my '09 Ram, where the FOB fits into it, it has a plastic tab inside, its depressed by the FOB, (or as you mentioned finger), well those plastic tabs are breaking off,
I bet the dealers are going to start keeping them in stock soon, people are irritated that they have to wait as much as a week sometimes to get them
