Push Button Start ? Pros and Cons

I Have a friend that says he might be able to develop and implement a push button start for my sorento. I thinking he is full of it. If i can remeber correctly JC whitney used to sell push button start conversion kits.

Edit
Yep i found a universal kit at http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/Produ...ush+button

Any pros and cons about push button start system..

RE: Push Button Start ? Pros and Cons

I have seen aftermarket engine-start buttons installed on vehicles originally without them. I believe a company called "Ignited" caters to the import performance scene. They make switches and kits that mimic the look of the start button on a Honda S2000.

Don't have first hand experience with them so can't help you with an evaluation. Although, Techno did install a push-button starter on my Sorie that came with my alarm/remote-start system, so I guess I have a engine-start button that works in reverse (push button first, then insert & turn key to release steering, then press brake to switch from remote-start running to normal running)... if that makes sense.

RE: Push Button Start ? Pros and Cons

Eyebrowdamn im good...

i wouldnt do it ... jcw sells crap... you still have to put the key in... what is the point...

now i have seen cars with a push button but the key could be left in a...wallet or a purse and had to be within 5 feet to work...
now thats cool!


SOLD YOUR SORENTO?
need not to worry, as long as you stayed in the KIA/Hyundai family...

RE: Push Button Start ? Pros and Cons

I've got a Sorento aftermarket push ignition. There are many buttons available. I haven't listed it or rodered it in but it's pretty cool. THeres a switch with three settings. The switch is meant to be mounted in a hidden place ie. under the seat. There are three settings:

1. allows engine to start by turning key
2. allows engine to start by using the push button
3. disables the ingition system altogether

I have some pics somewhere.

RE: Push Button Start ? Pros and Cons

Push button start wont be useful for me as firstly I have a manual Sorie and I like to leave my Sorie in gear when it parked on hills and stuff, so i thing push button start will definately not work for me...

RE: Push Button Start ? Pros and Cons

I wouldn't really want one on my Sorento, it's not really for SUV's it's more of a luxuary/sports sedan thing I'd say. Now whether I'll try one on my Sorento or not is undecided.
