    Push-button start help

    I just called out to ford and they told me that their parts computers only go back to 97 so they cant create a key from the VIN number. So i was looking online for solutions and one hit me....PUSH BUTTON IGNITION! I was just wondering if anyone has any hints or help before I start this. I am confident I can figure it out myself, but any help would be wonderful. I think I need 2 switches if I am going to bypass the key... An accesory switch, and a push button for the starter.
    I dont have a manual so I can't fin any wiring diagrams, but I think I can figure it out.

    Have you thought of maybe calling a Locksmith? They can help create a key for you. Or else, go install a new ignition and get new keys and your problem is fixed. I'm sure your tumbler in your ignition has gone through wear as well so brand new keys may not even work... *Just trying to save ya time.*

    I thought about it... From what I am told it is fairly expensive. I have a LOT more time than money right now.

    I also encountered another barrier;The steering wheel lock... Does anyone know how I would proceed in disengaging it and taking it out?

    if you've noticed when you turn the ignition it just supplies power to a switch.

    Get a momentary 12v dc switch, and wire it up, ghetto like the rest of the probe :-p
