Review & Install Video

Hey everyone Justin with AmericanMuscle.com here checking out a part that’ll literally transform your ride with the push of a button. That’s right I’m talking about this push button ignition kit for all 2005-2010 Mustangs. This is the exact button used in the almighty Ford GT supercar, and now it can be used to fire up the engine in your ride for a very affordable price. As you can see the button features a brushed metal trim ring which really fits perfectly in the interior of your Mustang. Seems to be impressing a lot of you on the site as well, just about everyone mentioned how much they dug the cool factor of this kit. The button itself installs using the supplied harness and detailed instructions. Now the button takes place in your upper power outlet above the stock radio, so you will need to disassemble the dash slightly to get to the wiring. But there is no need for drilling or anything like that so it’s very straight forward and should take you about 2 hours. So if you’re looking to add a subtle touch of supercar styling and functionality to the interior of your ride, then you’ll definitely want to check out this push button ignition kit.

Push to Start. Now you can give your new 2005 to 2010 S197 Mustang the same cool Push Button Start Ignition system that Exotic Super Cars like the Ford GT come with standard for a fraction of the price.

Easy Operation. The Push Start Ignition Button allows you to simply turn the key to the "on" position and then press the button to unleash to the power of your pony.

Straight Forward Install. The Push Button Ignition kit easily installs in the existing Power Point located in the center of your dash with the included wire harness, so there is no drilling into your dash.The Push Start Ignition is possibly the coolest functional modification you can make to your pony's interior.

keyless??? Do you have to have the key in the ignition in order for the push button to work?


  • Yes, you have to have the key in the ignition in order to start the car. Just turn the key to the "on" position, and press the start button.

If you was to bypass the ignition would you be able to turn off the vehicle with the pushbutton ?


  • You would need to have the key in the ignition with the car's electronics turned on to start the car. This also goes for the turning the car off, you are not able to press the button and turn it off. You will have to turn the key in the ignition to shut off the car's electronics to turn it off.

Is there a way to bypass the need to use a key?


  • There is a way to bypass the ignition lock, however, it can get very intuitive. I would not recommend bypassing the ignition, as anyone could easily start your vehicle, if they can get inside.

I have the push button start on my 06 gt for years but recently it struggles to start the car (similar to a weak battery). When I use the key, the car seems to fire up normally. Does this make sense, any ideas how to fix? Thanks for any help you can offer.


  • Hi,I'm sorry to hear you are having problems with your Push Button Start Ignition Kit sound like there could be a loose connection or maybe some corrosion on the connections.

Dose the key have to be in the ignition all the time? When you install the push button start. Do you have to have the key in ignition in the on position at all times when the car is in motion?


  • Yes, the key must be in the on position the entire time you're driving. Depending on how you wire the ignition, the key can be used only to turn the car on but not start it, leaving the push button the only way to start the car.

2 questions...please help 1. if the car is being driven and something hits the button or a silly passenger decides to hit, will it turn the car off or is the key the only way to turn the car off?? 2. if the button is pressed twice. will it be like turning the car on AFTER its already on?


  • As to Q1, if someone hits the button, it will not turn off the engine. The key still has to be in the steering column and turned to the on position. As to Q2, Yes hitting the button after the car is started will be like trying to start the car again, Depending on the age of the car it will do one of two things, reengage the starter motor (Bad Thing) or Nothing at all. Some newer cars have a safety installed that prevents the starter from engaging once the engine is running. I have not tried this with the Mustang, so I do not know if that will happen. Best bet is to not hit the button again once the car is started.

    Start Button Round Two

    This is the second start button I've installed on my Mustang. It has the same issues as the first one. The button will rotate when you push it so sometimes passengers notice the words "Start Engine" are upside down or sideways. Also when you start the car the oil pressure warning will sound for a few seconds.

    Push Button Start

    Product is nice, works well, fairly easy to install. The only thing that I don't like is that the button isn't set to stay straight so that the "Engine Start" lettering is always straight, I find myself constantly adjusting it so that it looks level..

    Good, but I think mine was installed wrong

    I know nothing about the electronics of cars, so I had mine done by my local auto sports shop. They said they did a bunch of them. For some reason now I get a "low oil pressure" warning every time I start the car. It's very annoying and I only have run into a handful of stories online where people have the same issue. I'm not sure if they installed it wrong or fried a fuse or something. Other then that it's a fun mod.

    • Response from AmericanMuscle

      Certainly sounds like something went wrong during the install. This kit should not cause any warning lights to pop on. I'd suggest taking your Mustang back to the shop, or possibly another shop, to see if they can figure out the underlying cause and get it corrected.

    Great Addition to Set Your Car Apart from The Comp.

    Easy install except, with the help from my son, we decided to locate the the switch into the panel directly under the window washer handle. Why lose an electrical port when you don't have to? This saved time by not having to remove the radio panel and everything associated with it. Basically we jumped to step 12 with the instrument cluster trim panel. I had to drill the mounting hole and trim the rubber spacer but that was the only mod we had to do and the finished product looks great and it is in the driver cockpit instead of the center of the dash. Pics available!

    Very Good Product

    It was the first time I took the inside of my car apart and was a little skeptical at first, but the online instructions were great and made installation very simple! the Push Button kit was great and came with everything to install it. Make sure to file down the back of the hole so the nut can be tightened all the way (this is important). Very pleased with this product and American Muscle for fast shipping!

    Cant stop turning off my car to start it again!

    Can't be any easier to install. Initially took me 40 minutes from disassemble to asenble. The next day decided to take it a step further. 1) Cut the green wire allowing only the button to start the car. 2) Installed an aviator toggle switch to initiate activation. I placed the switch to the right of the shifter (required drilling) 3) Installed a 9 digit chrome pin pad from an old F-14 Computer Pad located in the cockpit probably not easy to find, although a skillfull auto/ computer tech could wire an old cell phone key pad. The pad is installed on a cupholder delete and the correct 4 digit pin must be entered for the button to work. 4) Installed a red LED on the left side of the console trim that indicates armed (the left piece that pulls forward after the center console is remover, drilling required). So now you have to flip the power switch which opens the circut to the key pad, enter the 4 digit pin which opens the circuit to the button for 10 seconds. If the button is not pushed you must re-enter the pin, or if the wrong pin is entered 4 times in a row you have to wait 5 minutes to try again. Sounds over kill I am sure but it looks awesome when you start an automatic sequence to fire up your steed. Not to mention deters other people from driving the car, including the Misses. I should mention I am a pilot so I am going for more of a cockpit feel. My only complaint is that my "Low Oil Pressure" screen pops up when starting the car. Hope its just a computer glitch.

    Pretty neat addition.

    It looked like it might have been a big job. However, it wasn't that bad. Be sure to file the back and test fit BEFORE you put it all together. And for those of you who usually don't work on cars...DISCONNECT your battery First...this is not in the instructions.

    I got this product very fast from AM which I loved, and i promptly installed it the next day. The install however was not as easy as they made it out to be if you have some patience you will be able to install it, but if u have no patience let someone else do it for u. other than the install i have had no problems so far and i love the product!

    Not what I expected

    The instructions were spot on until you get to the wiring of the ignition switch. It is really hard to splice the "green" and "white" wires when no such wires are present. So I thought perhaps my 09 might be wired like the 2010 models and looked for a blue wire.. but no such luck. It took some researching online to find out the two wires needed are the far outside wires regardless of color. In my case one was gray the other was yellow. Other than that the installation was rather simple and straight forward. It looks good installed and so far works great.
