You'll connect one side of the button to constant 12v. like the battery positive and the other side of the switch will go to the trigger wire of the starter. This is the wire that tells the starter what to do.

I have 93 dodge power ram and it wont start it has power to the starter but not any where else even with the key in the on position


ignition or starter relay should be checked first.
Faulty ignition switch might be an issue.
You will still need an ignition source before you think about the push button start.
A friend has the same problem, and its a computer issue. (underhood, pass side low on firewall)
best of luck to ya.

Trying to install a push button ignition need to know which two wires to run to the button, without having to spend hours tracing and guessing. A diagram showing the wires would be great.


Your switch has 4 terminals.

1. Red is the hot wire from the battery.
2. Dark Blue is the run wire. This wire powers PCM, and engine and well as all accessories when the key is on.
3. Yellow is the start wire. It powers the engine, ECU and starter circuit when the key is turned to start.
4. Last terminal is accessories. I don't know the color, but it will power the radio, blower, windows, mirrors, etc. when key is turned to ACC. Some diagrams of the switch are below. Please let me know if you have any questions.

91 camry(4cyl, 5 sp) wont turn over. It has power but wont engage starter. Tried cleaning battery, new battery, new starter, changing starter relay-no joy. Was intermitant, now constant. Light tester...


By the sound of it. Can you check the Starter Fuse if its still good. you can visually check this by simply taking out the fuse and inspecting if the fillament is still whole. Any breaks in the filament would mean a dead fuse. To find out which fuse to check look at the underside of the fuse box cover and there should be a diagram.

Another potential problem would be the ignition switch. if thats the case there are a lot of ways to go about this but the cheapest way is to simply create a new lead to the starter and add in a push button switch (if done right it would look really cool since most exotic cars are actually started with a push of a button rather than a turn of the key)

My 1990 Cadillac Deville wont start or engage starter


Sounds like you blew fuse. Fix fuse and borrow a car starting switch they use at car repair shops. As long as you can turn tumbler to on ,you can start using the starting switch from repair shop..There should be a way to run a start button to start car and your off/on key should be OK

2006 Jeep Wrangler won't start


First, make sure you can turn the engine by hand. If you can't then the starter can't turn it either. Have someone else turn the key and look for the source of the click...may be a relay. Go over the starting circuit with a volt meter. Check for power at the starter main terminal and then with the key turned to "start" check for power at the trigger terminal on the starter. Check battery voltage and check relay operation.
You have a neutral safety switch on the transmission if its an automatic and a clutch switch if it's a stick. Check them as well. Make sure battery grounding on fender and block are also clean and secure.

No power chevy express 1500 van wont start turn the key and nothing.


Hi there, if you turn on the lights do you have head lights? if yes turn the key to start with headlights on does the lights dim? Yes? if yes that means your key is operating the starter if not it means the starter is not receiving a signal from the key to starter, need to know what it does before I go on. If no lights then the battery is dead or you have a corroded battery cable. Let me know for more information.

I have a 89 Chevrolet Chyenne pick-up and all of a sudden it would not crank with the key. I pulled the starter its good, for temporary use I installed a push button starter switch and with the key on it...


You need to see if there is power coming out of the ignition switch, and if it is getting to the trigger wire on the starter. Also check the neutral safety switch or if stickshift, the clutch switch.

Old style starter relay wiring


Normally on the old style starter solenoid/relay you have two large bolts for the battery and starter cables to attach to. There are two other smaller bolts that are used for the starter actuation. The "I" is used to add voltage to the points so the engine will start while the solenoid is in the start position, the other "S" goes to the start button or start side of the ignition switch. Old style ignitions used to drop the voltage to the coil during start and the engine would turn and turn until the key was released and then the engine would catch and start. To cure this they made the solenoids were designed to give temp power to the ignition system when cranking and starting. Hope this helps, RAC

Engine wont start


It sounds like the starter solenoid is bad which if I remember correctly my 1991 Cavalier had the solenoid on the starter.I suggest taking off the starter and having it tested.Most auto parts chains(Pep boys,Autozone)will test your starter for free.I this car is equiped with a seperate starter relay this may also be the problem
