Hello peterrole1 ,

The easiest way I can think of is to switch the power to the coil. Put a switch inline on the positive side of the coil. When it's off no power to the coil when on the power is restored.

At the back of the ignition barrel ,one wire will always be live and as you turn the key the others will power up but the one that goes to the starter will power uo momentarily and that will be at the final stage of your turn.pick power up from the accessory wire and hook it up to a spring switch and jump that to the starter wire.

Building a derby car and need to know how to wire starter and ingintion


The ignition switch can be just an SPST toggle switch that connects power from the battery side of the starter solenoid to the battery side of the ignition resistor. The starter switch is just a normally-open single-pole push-button. The starter solenoid usually has two small terminals and two large terminals. Wire one small terminal to the battery side of the solenoid and the other small terminal to the starter switch. The other side of the starter switch goes to a good grounding point. This allows the starter to be operated at any time whether the ignition is on or not. Remove a battery terminal to prevent kids from starting the car or turning the ignition on and running the battery down. Hope this helps!

I need to install a push button ignition on my 92 Dodge caravan, but I can't find the wiring diagram to the ignition switch so I can find out what wires I need for the button. Any answers


you don't need them,
run your hot wire directly from battery,and the from push button switch to starter solenoid,but you will still have to have the key turned on to run
