17. If you would like the start button to be illuminated ccontinuously when the key is in the ignition (constant on), the black ground wire will need to be connnected to vehicle ground just below instrument cluster near steering column. Keep wire in conduit and only pull it out far enough to reach the distance between the ground point and the steering column ignition switch in upcoming steps. This ground can be shared with any other common ground nearby on the metal portion of the dash.
18. If you do not want the switch to be illuminated at all (constant off), safely terminate the ground wire inside the conduit, and do not connect it to any vehicle ground.
19. Red and green wire in conduit (and black wire if following step 17 ) will need to be safely routed from center console to steering column by routing with existing factory wiring.
20. Once routed, using supplied tap connector, connect Red wire to White wire with light yellow tracer (Pin 2 off ignition switch).
21. Using supplied tap connect r, connect Green wire to green wire ( pin 7) of ignition switch. Important – if you would lke car to start ONLY with use of buttonn, cut wire as it exits pin 7,, allowing wire as it goes back into the harness to only be connected to green wire from new start button. If you would like it to be “dual purpose”” and be able to start either with the key (as original) or with the start button (preferred installation meethod), DO NOT cut the wire, just safely tap into it with supplied tap connector.
22. Once wiring is connected, reconnect ignition switch connector and safely route wiring away from any moving parts. Zip tie to existing factory wiring and/or brackets with supplied zip ties and trim as needed.
23. Zip tie original power outlet wiring safely out of the way, and reinstall radio plate in original position, reconnnect wiring, and install 7mm screws.
Testing: Foor the following steps, be sure vehicle is in park if an automatic, neutral if a manual, wheels are safely blocked, and emergency brake is set .
24. Reconnect battery negative ground cable.
25. Sitting in driver’s seat, place key in ignition. If illumination ground wire was connected to emergency brake wiring or directly to ground, start button should illuminate. If it is wired to do so and does not, re-check connections.
26. If switch is wired to turn off when emergency brake is released, test for proper operation by doing the following: hold foot firmly on brake pedal and release emergency brake. Illumination should turn off. Set emergeency brake and switch should re-illuminnate, along with parking brake warning light on instrument cluster.
27. Turn key to on position, but do not start. With transmission in neutral (manual) and clutch depressed, or in park (automatic) and foot on brake, press start button. Engine should start. If it does not, remove key and re-check connections. If engine does start, turn back off.
28. If blue-white wire on pin 7 of ignition switch connector was not cut in step 35, check for “normal” operation with ignition key by attempting to start with key only. Engine should start. Turn engine back off after testing .
29. If above tests are successful, remove key from ignition and complete re-assembly of remaining dash covers and center console cover by reversing steps 12 to 2.
